Directed Call Pickup - Directed Call Pickup allows a user to dial an access code (system wide configurable, e.g.*95) followed by an extension, to pick up (answer) a call directed to a user with that extension. If the ringing party has already answered the call, or if it has no alerting call, or if the dialed extension is invalid, the user receives a fast busy tone. If there are more than one ringing call on the dialed extension, answer the call that has been ringing in the longest.

3. Group Call Pickup - Group Call Pickup allows a user to dial an access code (system wide configurable, e.g.*97) to pick up an incoming call that is ringing at that extension that is a member of the group.
