Overview

The ScreenSaver and Backlight Schedule allows you to define the time that screen saver and back light settings will be enabled. This is useful to keep the phone from dimming during normal business hours, but still protect the screen on off hours.

Setting ScreenSaver and Backlight Schedule

  • You can set the ScreenSaver and Backlight Schedule using the PBX EndPoint Manager.
  • Go into End Point Manager in your PBX and select the Sangoma brand in the menu.


 

  • Click on the template in End Point Manager that you want to modify.

 
 

  • Click on the Options menu tab at the top
     


  • Screen Saver and Backlight Schedule is defined with a simple schedule per day:

    • For each day, you can specify a start and end time.  Between these times, the phone will ignore the Screen Saver and Backlight settings defined for the template in Endpoint Manager. The schedule as entered above will keep the phone backlight on and the screen saver inactive during businsess hours. The start and end times must occur on the same day, i.e. the time interval can't span midnight.
    • When it is after the End Time, and before the Start Time, the Screen Saver and Backlight settings as defined in the template with be honored
  • You now need to update the phone configuration file. The three options at the bottom of the template are:


    • Save Template- This will only save your changes into the PBX database. It will not write out new config files for the phones that are using this template as mapped in the Extension Mapping section of End Point Manager.
    • Save and Rebuild Config(s)- This will save your changes to the PBX Database and will also write out new config files for the phones that are using this template as mapped in the Extension Mapping section of End Point Manager. The phones will need to be rebooted in order to retrieve the changes.
    • Save, Rebuild Config(s) and Update Phones- This will do both the "Save Template" and the "and Rebuild Configs" options above, and it will also immediately update any phones that are mapped to use this template and currently registered to the PBX, with no need to reboot the phones.
