MITvoip Telephone Contact Directory and Speed Dial

On this page:

Overview

Your MITvoip phone has features that allow you quick access to numbers you dial frequently. If you have unused line keys, each of them can display a number for one-touch dialing. The contact directory stores additional names and numbers and has a search function.

For information about how to enter text, see Entering Text with the Number Keypad

Advanced contact management features are available via the Phone Book feature on the MITvoip Web Interface.

About Speed Dial Index Numbers

You can assign speed dials to numbers you call frequently. Your phone keeps track of these contacts with a Speed Dial Index number, which you can assign in the Contact Directory. Here are a few things you should know about speed dial index numbers:

  • You do not need to assign the numbers consecutively.
  • Your contacts will appear on your speed dial list in order by index number. However, they will appear as consecutive numbers, regardless of the index numbers assigned to them. So if you assign index numbers 1, 4, and 5, the speed dial list will show them as 1, 2, and 3.
  • Your speed dials will be assigned to unused line keys automatically in order by index number until all speed dials are assigned or all line keys are used.
  • If you assign an index number that is already in use, the original contact with that number will be removed from your speed dial list. Assign it a new index number to put it back on the list.
  • To remove a contact from your speed dial list, delete its speed dial index number.

Accessing the Contact Directory

Do one of the following:

  • Press the Menu button and select Features. Then select Contact Directory.
  • Press the Directories button and select Contact Directory.

A list of entries in your Contact Directory will appear in order by speed dial index number.

To exit the directory, either press the Cancel and Exit soft keys until you return to the idle display, or press Directories or Menu.

Managing Directory and Speed Dial Entries

Note: For MIT numbers, enter only the five-digit extension.

To add an entry to your directory

  1. Access the directory and press the Add soft key. If it is not visible, press the More soft key. If you wish to create a new entry with a line key assignment, hold down an unused line key until an Add to Directory window appears.
  2. Fill in the fields using the number keypad.
    • Use the Up/Down Arrows to move through the fields.
    • Use the << soft key (or the X button, if available) to backspace if you make a mistake.
    • For help with text entry, see Entering Text with the Number Keypad.
  3. Enter the phone number in the Contact field as it would appear on your display as an incoming call. This must be a unique entry; you may not have more than one contact entry with the same number.
  4. If you wish, change or delete the speed dial index number. (By default, the entry will be assigned to the next available speed dial index.)
  5. If you wish, you can set a distinctive ring tone for this contact.
  6. Press the Save soft key. The name and number of the new entry will appear in your directory. If there are unused line buttons and you have set a Speed Dial Index number, a Speed Dial icon will appear at the next available line button with the contact's name.

To add an entry from your call list to your directory

  1. Select a call from a call list. For instructions, see Call Lists.
  2. Press the Save soft key. A message reading "Saved" will flash on the display briefly.
  3. Access the Contact Directory and find the contact at the top of the list.
  4. Press the Edit soft key to add the contact's name, assign a speed dial index number, and set other options.

To edit an entry in your directory

  1. Access the directory and highlight the entry you want to edit.
  2. Press the Edit soft key.
  3. Make your changes.
  4. Press Save.

To edit a contact that is assigned to a line key, press and hold the line key until the contact record appears. Make your changes and press the Save soft key.

To add an existing contact to your speed dial line keys

  1. Access the directory and highlight the entry you want to add to your line keys.
  2. Press the Edit soft key.
  3. Press and hold down a line key until a number appears in the Speed Dial Index field. Note that the speed dial will be assigned to the next available line key, regardless of which line key you press. You cannot skip line keys. If the key you hold down already has a speed dial assigned to it, that contact will be removed from the speed dial list.
  4. Press the Save soft key.

To delete an entry in your directory

  1. Access the directory and highlight the entry you want to delete.
  2. Press the Delete soft key. If it is not visible, press the More soft key.
    Result: The entry will be removed from your directory. If it was assigned to a line key, the Speed Dial icon will disappear.

Searching the Directory

  1. Access the directory and press the Search soft key. If it is not visible, press the More soft key.
  2. Enter the first and/or last name. For help with text entry, see Entering Text with the Number Keypad.
    • You do not need to enter the entire name. It will search for any names whose first letters match what you enter.
    • The search function is not case sensitive.
  3. Press the Search soft key.
    Result: The results of your search will be displayed. If there isn't a match, the message "No records found" will appear.

Using the Directory and Speed Dial to Place Calls

To place a call from the directory, select the number you want to call and press the Dial soft key.

If the contact you want to call is on one of your line keys, press that line key to autodial the number.

To access all entries on your speed dial list when your phone is in idle mode, press the Up Arrow key. Select the contact you want to call and press the Dial soft key
