Directed Call Pickup with Barge-In allows you to dial a feature access code followed by an extension to pick up or barge-in on a call to another group member. If the call has not been answered, then it is picked up. If the call has been answered, then barge-in occurs.
A barge-in results in a three-way call being created between you, the group member being barged-in on, and the other party the group member is connected to. You are the controller of the barge-in three-way call.

Silent Monitoring is the ability for a supervisor to listen into calls being handled by their agents. Silent Monitoring can be configured to play a tone to allow agents to know they are being monitored.
