Please see information here about PDQ machines.
Is it possible to have a phone that automatically dials a specified number?
Yes, this is called a hotdial number.  If you want the call to go to a number if the caller does not call a number in a specified time, this is a warmdial number.  Please email the Chorus team to request.
Is it possible to have a Polycom Conference unit on the same extension as another device?
Yes, but it's not advisable. Incoming calls will only ring on the 'other' device, meaning that it becomes not possible to receive calls on the Polycom if it shares a line with another device.
