A feature access code is a series of digits that usually begin with the * key which when used, perform certain actions. AVAD has a default setting for each and all feature access codes however your group administrator can change them.

You can check what feature access codes are available to you and how to use them by logging into your AVAD User portal. Once logged in select "Utilities" from the left hand menu. You will then see an option labeled "Feature Access Codes" click that for a full detail of your current access codes available to you.

To use most feature access codes simply enter the code you wish to use. Depending on the specific feature you are using you will then initiate the call immediately, or enter in a phone number or extension first.



The following is a detailed list of all feature access codes and what they are for. Please keep in mind you may not have access to all of these codes. Also your group administrator might have changed the code from the default.
