If a call is ringing on the partner extension then the relevant DSS key will flash. Pressing this key will answer the call. The Secretary can transfer the call to the Manager by pressing the DSSkey of the Manager, this automatically puts the caller on hold, allowing the Secretary to announce the call and upon replacing the handset put the call through.
