Call Back Feature – Cisco Unified Communication Manager

Hello All,
What is Call Back feature in Cisco Unified Communication Manager? The Call Back feature allows you to receive call-back notification on your Cisco Unified IP Phone when a called party line becomes available.
For example:- Phone A is calling Phone B. Phone A has been trying since long time but Phone B is unavailable to pick the call. So, while Phone B is ringing, a feature called CallBack is available on the Phone A’s softkey which can be pressed so that whenever Phone B is available, Phone A receives the notification.
Which state the Call Back Feature will work?
On Hook call state
Ring Out call state
Connected Transfer call state
How can be this configured?
