E7000 audio file management lets you manage announcements, recordings, tones, songs, and playlists. The audio files added through this feature can be set through the Schedules feature to automatically play during specified times.
Announcements are pre-recorded audio files that can be scheduled to play during specific times and in specific zones. These can be either normal announcements, such as pre-recorded announcements about upcoming school events, or emergency announcements, such as pre-recorded shelter in place announcements that can be played during events such as tornado warnings or active shooter scenarios. Announcements can also precede a page.
The E7000 web-based UI lets you add, edit, delete, and play announcements. The announcement can be scheduled to play at certain times and in certain zones.
E7000 provides tones that can be used with events, such as bell schedules, or as audio indicators, such as alarms. You can also download and generate customized tones or select to use a line input channel as the tone source.
Through the Tones page, you can view a list of available tones, delete user-provided tones, or select to add or edit a tone. You cannot delete a default tone, but you can prevent it from being viewed on the dashboard or on admin phones that have a tones/alarms menu. A hidden tone still appears on the Tones page.
