How To Configure Speed Dial Numbers
The Speed Dial tab allows you to dial up to 20 frequently called numbers by pressing only one or two keys. Enter who or what is being called in the Description field, the one or two digit speed dial shortcut in the Code field, and the number or extension you want to call in the Number Dialed field. Then click on Update Speed Dial to save your entries and/or changes.
Speed Dial Considerations
To speed dial an international number, enter the international access code (011 or 00) followed by the country code and number.
You can enter numbers in US or Canada either with or without the “1” in front of the number.
If you enter any alphabetic characters, they will be changed to the corresponding number on a phone keypad. For example, 1-800-GOF-ORIT would be changed to read 18004636748.
Using Speed Dial
To use Speed Dial, simply press the keys on your phone or softphone keypad that is the Code corresponding to the number you wish to call. To speed the call on its way, you can then press the # key or the Dial key or whatever your phone has that triggers an outbound call.
As a side note – # is a universal “launch this call now” key on all telephones. Use it whenever you dial an international call, for example, to save yourself 4-5 seconds of post dial delay.
Note: Using code 99 would prevent parking calls if your PBX has 99 as the Call Park code.
