A. General

Import of data in the administration portal (e.g. extensions, telephone book entries or speed dial) can easily transferred via CSV file into your PBX avoiding manual data entry. 

The example in this leaflet concerns import of speed dial.

 

 

Definition Speed Dial:

A speed dial entry is an individually configured fixed key sequence of your phone. You define the number sequence used to call an external or internal number. This enables you to dial a number with a fixed key sequence in a very short time.

  

If you choose a speed dial length of 1, you can put 10 speed dial numbers (0-9) onto your PBX which are available when dialing *2 and the speed dial number.

 

Example:
  
Employee Doe has the extension -200: He wants to be available on the go using speed dial *2-200. 

-Log into the administration portal and select Administration / Profile.

 

 

Find further information about the administration portal in the manual.

 

 

 

-Set the speed dial length under Other configuration. A length between 0 to 4 digits is possible.
In our example employee Doe has got the extension number 200. Therefore choose a speed dial length of 3.

3 means that all speed dial numbers from 000 to 999 are available. If you would like to set the number 7 as speed dial, you need to type in 007 in your phone. To execute speed dial, press *2 and the speed dial number (e.g. *2007)
