The Meridian PBX's x11 software divides information into Overlays or Loader Programs ("loads" for short). Each Load has a specific function for example. LD 20 is where you can print information about telephones on the system. The loads range from LD 01 - LD 143. If you see any prompts that I don't mention just "enter" past them. ALWAY LOOK UP ERROR MESSAGES!!!! Error messages indicate to you what you are doing incorrectly, ignoring them can lead to hours of fustration. To look up a Error message you have a couple of options depending on the Software Release of you PBX. 1. You can look up an error message while in a load working. Hold down the Shift Key and press 1. This will bring you to the > prompt. Then Type in: ERR "the error message here". I.e. If I got an Error while Printing a new phone: REQ: PRT TYPE: FNB SCH0001 TYPE: | (here is where I would hold down the Shift key and press "1") Then Type: >ERR SCH001 This is what should display on the screeen: SCH001: Invalid Input type for Designated Prompt. USE: TNB, DNB, Or Phone Type..... This is just an example. 2. If you are using Optivity there is a feature on there that looks up Error message for you. It is in the System Terminal:It looks like "!?" it will read you the last error message. Overview What I am going to show you should work in a Meridian PBX's with Release 19 and above. We will be using the Following Loads or (Loaders) programs LD 10 - Creating and editing Analog phones. LD 11 - Creating and editing Digital phones. LD 18 - Speed Call Lists- How to set them up. LD 20 - Moves, Adds, and Changes, Most of the common programming will be done here. (in Release 19 and above LDs 10,11,and 32 are accessible through LD 20.) LD 23 - Programming ACD's , Here we will program Telephone number that will ring directly to Voicemail without using TN's. LD 32 - Stating, Enabling and Disabling Telephones LD 43 - Backing up the PBX LD 95 - Name Changes, This is where we add, delete, or change the Display Names for any numbers we program. The Meridian Programming Language is a series of Prompts and Responses. The system will usually prompt you for what it needs and will wait for your response. Here are some typical prompts the system asks for: REQ: The Request prompt, Requests information. The system is waiting for your command. valid responses are different for each load. i.e.: (LD 20) Valid commands are: -PRT -DISU -NEW -ENLU -CHG -OUT -STAT -COPY... *DataHeads please note: BackSpace does not work if you mess up in this programming. Please refer to below: (Shift a.k.a. (the Star key) is used when you make a mistake see below: * Allows you to reenter information at that specific prompt ** Takes you back to the beginning of the Load. **** Takes you out of a load or type "END" TYPE: This is the type of item you want change.
