Cisco has a concept of Voice VLAN. In Avaya, this configuration achieved by port configuration "tag pvid" . there are four port modes which you can keep the port in.
Switch port mode
1. Access
2. Tag All (trunk)
3. Tag pvid
4. Untag pvid

Explains each one of this.
1. The port will be in access mode and will part of one VLAN only, which is the pvid
2. The port can be part of all / any VLAN. All packets will be tagged.
3. This mode will keep the pvid tagged. all other packet will go untagged.
4. This will send all packets tagged, except the pvid vlan packet.

While you having an IP Phone and a PC connected to that IP Phone, the recommended port mode is TAG PVID, and mention the IP PHone VLAN (voice vlan) as pvid.
