I am the safety director at a small high school. Last year our IT dept. switched our phone system from a traditional hard wired system to a ZOOM Voip system. One of the features we lost was the ability to use our phone system as an emergency mass alert system. With the previous system we were able to dial a number, speak into the phone and that message would be relayed to all phone extensions in the school. What I am looking to find out is if this can be done on the ZOOM Voip system and if so how.
Thanks for any advise,
Dir. of Safety, Fryeburg Academy

For your initial testing, it is convenient to just setup via the phone's web interface, then pull the relevant pieces out of the config file to make a template. In fact, if just have a couple of phones, might be the easiest way especially if you don't normally work with polycom config files....
1. Thanks for the quick response...
2. Thanks for the video, that was great.. I was able to get it setup on my phone.... silly questions, I am guessing this has to be enabled on all devices to work?
followed enielson instructions and they work.
1. enable one phone for paging.
2. look at phone config file for parameters starting with 'ptt.'. the only one i found was
3. goto phone system management->company information->account settings->desk phone sectiom->provision template click manage
4. select add to create a template. see my poly vvx 250 group paging template screen shot.
5. assign your provisioning template to your poly vvx 250 phones. phone system management->phones & devices->select the phone you want to assign to the template to->near the bottom, find provision template and click bind. select your target template and click bind. immediately, paging is added to your selected phone.
please see attached screen shots.
Thanks to everyone for your guidance regarding this matter. FAJGrondin was able to get all of our desk phones on an emergency group broadcast group. We drilled yesterday and it worked exactly as we hoped. As the safety director, I am very happy and relieved to have this functionality back.
