    I have a ring group set up for paging, but if someone is on a call and gets paged, the call is put on hold. I found the auto-answer page option, but this makes it so paging turns into basically a regular interoffice call that needs to be picked up. Is there some kind of workaround anyone can think of?

    Paging takes priority - look at it like this
    You are on a facebook call on your mobile and a GSM call comes in.. What happens? GSM takes priority.. this is the same.
    A paging is for emergency purposes mostly.,. That is by design.

    One of my locations uses paging to announce things like "John, you have a call on park 1." Is there a different way to do things like this?
