Save Number Dialed


Save Number Dialed permits an extension user to save their last outside number and easily redial it later on. For example, an extension user can recall a busy or unanswered number without manually dialing the digits. The system retains the saved number until the user stores a new one in its place.

Save Number Dialed saves in system memory a dialed number up to 20 digits. The system remembers the digits regardless of whether the call was answered, unanswered or busy. The system normally uses the same line as for the initial call. However, if that line is busy and is part of a Line Group, Save Number Dialed will automatically select the next line in the group. The user can also preselect a specific line if desired.

Save Number Dialed requires a uniquely programmed Feature Key on the extension or DSS Console.
