A maximum of five phone numbers can display in the list. The newest number that you entered displays at the top of the list; the oldest phone number displays at the bottom.

You can edit a phone number in the list by pressing backspace on your keyboard. If you edit a phone number, the original number continues to display in the list.

Cisco Web Dialer allows you to place calls from the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Business Edition 3000 User Preferences Interface.

1. Click Search directory and place call.

2. After the Cisco Web Dialer search page displays, select your search criteria from the Filter drop-down list box. Then, enter the appropriate search text, if applicable.

Set your speed dials

You can set up to 12 speed-dial lines, although your phones may not support 12 speed-dial lines. The rows where you add speed dials are a prioritized list with the top row being the first speed dial that you want to display on the phone, and so on. The buttons on your phones may be designated for other purposes besides speed dials. If the button on your phone has an extension or text next to it that is not for speed dials, the button has been designated for another purpose.

The speed dials that you assign and prioritize apply to all phones that belong to you. Your speed dials may display on Cisco Extension Mobility-enabled phones if you are allowed to use Cisco Extension Mobility.

1. Enter the phone label and associated phone number in the rows. In the Phone Label field, enter any characters. In the Phone Number field, enter a phone number that includes an access code, area code, and so on.

2. To reorder the speed dials, click the arrows.

3. Click Save.

Tip To clear the data that you entered for a speed dial, click x. Then, click Save .

Configure your Busy Lamp Feature (BLF)

When a speed-dial button is configured to dial an internal number, the speed-dial button light will illuminate when the destination phone is picked up. It remains lit until the other phone goes off hook. As a result, the phone with the speed-dial button can determine if the other party is currently on the phone or not. Using this feature, an attendant can monitor other lines before transferring a call to that line.

Certain phone types, such as the Cisco Unified IP Phone 6900 Series, have softkeys on the screen, as opposed to physical buttons on the phone. These on-screen buttons are not compatible with the Busy Lamp Feature (BLF) and therefore do not show the presence of the other party.

Note When placing a call, or transferring a call, using speed dials, be aware of the following: if the destination phone has roll-over lines enabled, on-hook/off-hook illumination will apply only to the first appearance of that line on the phone.
For example, if the destination number is 5000, and the line 5000 appears multiple times on the destination phone—so that calls roll over from the first appearance to the next when the first appearance is busy—then only that first appearance is monitored. If the user on the destination phone is on a call using the second appearance of 5000, the speed dial notices that the first appearance is not busy and the light may not illuminate to indicate that line 5000 is busy.
