Creating Speed Dials Using CallManager

Find out how to use Speed Dial or Abbeviated Dial on your VoIP phone.

Speed Dials

If you create a Speed Dial of someone already in the VoIP system, the person's name will be displayed instead of just the phone number when abbreviated number is dialed.

A ‘pause’ cannot be programmed in a Speed Dial. The only valid alphanumeric characters that can be programmed for Speed Dials are 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, * and #.

Adding Speed Dials

  1. Log into CallManager.
  2. Enter your 7 digit telephone number as the username.
  3. Enter your password. 
  4. Select the desired line from the left-hand pane.
  5. Click the Phone Settings tab.
  6. Enter a number and a label, such as Home, for a speed dial number on your phone.
  7. Click Save.

Some phones only have abbreviated dialing options.
