Directory Dialing


Directory Dialing allows a display keyset user to select a co-worker or outside call from a list of names, rather than dialing the phone number. There are three types of directory Dialing:
  • System (Company-Wide) Speed Dial names.
  • Intercom names (including extension, Ring Group and UCD Group names).
  • Personal Speed Dial names.

Directory Dialing with Search

Directory Dialing is enhanced with search capability to help you quickly look through the directory for the co-worker or Speed Dial number you wish to call. To use search:
  1. Press Directory [Dir] to select Directory Dialing.
  2. Select the type of directory you wish to search.
    • Extension [Ext] = Co-workers
    • Personal [Pers] = Personal Speed Dial Numbers
    • Company [Cmpy] = Company-wide Shared Speed Dial Numbers
  3. Start dialing letters for the directory name.
    • The search will narrow as you dial additional letters in the name.
    • Use Previous [Prev] and Next [Next] (or the volume keys) to scroll through the directory.
  4. When the name you wish to call displays, press Dial to place the call.

Conditions and Defaults


  • None.

Default Setting

  • Directory Dialing always enabled.
  • There are no Intercom (extension) names or Speed Dial names stored.
