For anyone who uses a Plantronics CS540 wireless headset, there’s a feature that a lot of people don’t know about. This is the auto answer feature that can be turned on or off and can provide you with added convenience over answering incoming calls manually.
This blog will explain this feature so that you’ll know what it is, how it can be of benefit to you and where this adjustment is located on your Plantronics CS540 wireless headset.
First, what is it?
On the back of your Plantronics CS540 charging base, you’ll see some ports for connecting the wireless headset to cables and power. You’ll also see two, small buttons located on the right and left side of the base. On the left side you’ll see a small button that allows you to turn on or turn off the wideband audio feature. I’ll go over this in another blog. Below, you’ll see an image and a brief description of this button’s functionality.
The button I’d like you to find is located on the opposite side of the base as shown below.
As you’ll see, this button allows you to move it into one of two positions. If you prefer to answer calls by simply removing the headset out of the docking station (auto answer), then you’ll want this button in the position that shows green. In this setting, if you want to make a call or take an incoming call, the dial tone or incoming call is sent to your headset by simply taking the headset out of the charging cradle.
If you prefer to press the button on the side of the headset earpiece when you want to make or take a call (manual answer), then you’ll want the button on the back of the CS540 base in the position where it shows red. Below is the button you press to take a call or make a call if you’re in the manual answer mode.
With the Plantronics CS540 you’re provided with choices as to how you access calls. Which you select is a matter of personal preference but it’s nice to have the choice. Also, in certain cases, wireless headsets can be redeployed, so having choices as to how the headset functions is appealing because everyone has their own likes.
If you’re in the market for new headsets, you should consider trading in your old ones for cash or credit towards new. You can save some good money while helping our environment at the same time. Click below to get a quick trade in quote today.
