Speed Dial Summary

Speed dial allows a phone user to quickly dial a number from a list. The different types of speed dial are summarized in Table 85.

Table 85 Speed Dial Types

Speed Dial Type
Availability of Numbers
Description
How Configured

Local Speed Dial Menu

System-level list of frequently called numbers that can be programmed on all phones.

A maximum of 32 numbers can be defined.

Numbers are set up by an administrator using an XML File speeddial.xml, which is placed in the Cisco Unified CME router's flash memory.

Users invoke entries from the Directories > Local Speed Dial menu on IP phones.

Enabling a Local Speed Dial Menu.

Personal Speed Dial Menu

Speed dial entries are local to a specific IP phone.

A maximum of 24 numbers per phone can be defined.

Users invoke entries from the Directories > Local Services > Personal Speed Dials menu on IP phones.

SCCP: Enabling a Personal Speed Dial Menu

SIP: Configuring a Personal Speed-Dial Menu.

Speed Dial Buttons and Abbreviated Dialing

Up to 99 speed-dial codes per phone.

For IP phones, the first entries that are set up occupy any unused line buttons and are invoked when a user presses one of these line buttons. Subsequent entries are invoked when a phone user dials the speed-dial code (tag) and the Abbr soft key.

Analog phone users invoke speed dial by entering an asterisk and the speed-dial code (tag) number of the desired entry.

SCCP: Defining Speed-Dial Buttons and Abbreviated Dialing

SIP: Defining Speed-Dial Buttons.

Bulk-Loading Speed Dial Numbers

There can be up to ten text files containing lists of many speed-dial numbers that are loaded into flash, slot, or TFTP locations to be accessed by phone users. The ten files can hold 10,000 numbers.

Phone users dial the following sequence:

prefix-code list-id index [extension-digits]

SCCP: Enabling Bulk-Loading Speed-Dial.

Monitor-Line Button for Speed Dial

Speed dial entries are local to a specific IP phone.

There can be as many numbers as there are monitor lines on a phone.

IP phone buttons that are configured as monitor lines can be used to speed-dial the line that is being monitored.

No additional configuration required.

Direct Station Select (DSS) Service

All phones on which speed-dial line or monitor line button is configured.

Allows phone user to fast transfer a call by pressing a single speed-dial line or monitor line button.

SCCP: Enabling DSS Service.


Speed Dial Buttons and Abbreviated Dialing

In a Cisco Unified CME system, each phone can have up to 32 local speed-dial numbers (codes 1 to  32), up to 99 system-level speed-dial numbers (codes 1 to 99), or a combination of the two. If you program both a local and a system-level speed-dial number with the same speed-dial code (tag), the local number takes precedence. Typically you will want to reserve codes 1 to 32 for local, per-phone speed-dial numbers and use codes 33 to 99 for system-level speed-dial numbers so that there is no conflict.

On an IP phone, speed-dial entries are assigned to unused line buttons. Then, after all line buttons are used, subsequent entries are added but do not have an assigned line button. The speed-dial entry is not related to the physical button layout of the phone. Entries are assigned in order of speed-dial tag.

You can create local speed-dial codes with locked numbers that cannot be changed from the phone. You can also create empty local speed-dial codes on an IP phone without a telephone number. These empty speed-dial codes can be changed by the phone user to add a telephone number.

Changes to speed-dial entries are saved into the router's nonvolatile random-access memory (NVRAM) configuration after a timer-based delay.

For configuration information, see the "SCCP: Defining Speed-Dial Buttons and Abbreviated Dialing" section.

Bulk-Loading Speed Dial Numbers

In Cisco Unified CME 4.0 and later versions, up to ten text files containing lists of many speed-dial numbers can be loaded into flash, slot, or TFTP locations to be accessed by phone users. The ten files can hold a total of up to 10,000 numbers. Each list holds numbers that are in an appropriate format for dialing from IP phones and SCCP-enabled analog phones.

Up to ten bulk speed-dial lists can be created. These lists might be corporate directory lists, regional lists, or local lists, for example. The speed-dial numbers in these lists can be system-level (available to all ephones) or personal (available to one or more specified ephones). Each list receives a unique speed-dial list ID number (sd-id) between 0 and 9.

Speed-dial list ID numbers that are not used for global speed-dial lists are available to identify personal, custom lists that are associated with individual phones.

Bulk speed-dial lists contain entries of speed-dial codes and the associated phone numbers to dial. Each entry in a speed-dial list must appear on a separate line. The fields in each entry are separated by commas (,). A line that begins with a semicolon (;) is handled as a comment. The format of each entry is shown in the following line.

 index,digits,[name],[hide],[append]

Table 86 explains the fields in a bulk speed-dial list entry.

Table 86 Bulk Speed-Dial List Entry

Field
Description

index

Zero-filled number that uniquely identifies this index entry. Maximum length: 4 digits. All index entries must be the same length.

digits

Telephone number to dialed. Represents a fully qualified E.164 number. Use a comma (,) to represent a one-second pause.

name

(Optional) Alphanumeric string to identify a name, up to 30 characters.

hide

(Optional) Enter hide to block the display of the dialed number.

append

(Optional) Enter append to allow additional digits to be appended to this number when dialed.


The following is a sample bulk speed-dial list:

01,5550140,voicemail,hide,append

90,914085550153,Cisco extension,hide,append

11,9911,emergency,hide,

91,9911,emergency,hide,

08,110,Paging,,append

 

To place a call to a speed-dial entry in a list, the phone user must first dial a prefix, followed by the list ID number, then the index for the bulk speed-dial list entry to be called.

For configuration information, see the "SCCP: Enabling Bulk-Loading Speed-Dial" section.

Monitor-Line Button for Speed Dial

For Cisco CME 3.2 and later versions, a monitor-line button can be used to speed-dial the monitor line's number. A monitor line is a line that is shared by two people. Only one person can make and receive calls on the shared line at a time, while the other person, whose line is in monitor mode, is able to see that the line is in use. Speed dialing is available when monitor lines' lamps are off, indicating that the line is not in use. For example, an assistant who wants to talk with a manager can press an unlit monitor-line button to speed-dial the manager's number.

A monitor-line lamp is off or unlit only when its line is in the idle call state. The idle state occurs before a call is made and after a call is completed. For all other call states, the monitor-line lamp is on or lit.

The following example shows a monitor-line configuration. Extension 2311 is the manager's line, and ephone 1 is the manager's phone. The manager's assistant monitors extension 2311 on button 2 of ephone 2. When the manager is on the line, the lamp is lit on the assistant's phone. If the lamp is not lit, the assistant can speed-dial the manager by pressing button 2.

ephone-dn 11

 number 2311

 

ephone-dn 22

 number 2322

 

ephone 1

 button 1:11

 

ephone 2

 button 1:22 2m11

 

No additional configuration is required to enable a phone user to speed dial the number of a monitored shared line, when the monitored line is in an idle call state.

DSS (Direct Station Select) Service

In Cisco Unified CME 4.0(2) and later versions, the DSS (Direct Station Select) Service feature allows the phone user to press a single speed-dial line button to transfer an incoming call when the call is in the connected state. This feature is supported on all phones on which monitor line buttons for speed dial or speed-dial line buttons are configured.

When the DSS service is enabled, the system automatically generates a simulated transfer key event when needed, eliminating the requirement for the phone user to press the Transfer button.

Disabling the service changes the behavior of the speed-dial line button on all IP phones so that a user pressing a speed-dial button in the middle of a connected call will play out the speed-dial digits into the call without transferring the call. When DSS service is disabled, the phone user must first press Transfer and then press the monitor or speed-dial line button to transfer the incoming call.

For configuration information, see the "Enabling a Local Speed Dial Menu" section.

Phone User-Interface for Speed Dial and Fast Dial

In Cisco Unified CME 4.3 and later versions, IP phone users can configure their own speed-dial and fast-dial settings directly from the phone. The speed-dial and fast-dial settings can be added or modified on the phone by using a menu available with the Services feature button. Extension Mobility users can add or modify speed-dial settings in their user profile after logging in. Fast-dial settings are not configurable from Extension Mobility phones, nor is the logout profile configurable from the phone.

Previously, the speed-dial and fast-dial configuration for a phone could only be done in Cisco Unified CME or by using the web-based GUI. This feature gives phone users the convenience of configuring their speed-dial and fast-dial settings from their phones directly.

The speed-dial and fast-dial user interface is enabled by default on all phones with displays. You can disable the capability for an individual phone in Cisco Unified CME to prevent a phone user from accessing the interface. If a phone's speed-dial or fast-dial setting is configured with an ephone-template, the configuration from the phone applies only to the specific phone and does not change the ephone-template configuration.

For configuration information, see the "SCCP: Enabling User Interface for Speed-Dial and Fast-Dial" section.

For information on how phone users configure speed-dial and fast-dial buttons using the phone user-interface, see the Cisco Unified IP Phone documentation for Cisco Unified CME.

Personal Speed Dial Menu: Example

Speed-Dial Buttons and Abbreviated Dialing: Example

Bulk-Loading Speed Dial: Example

Speed-Dial and Fast-Dial User Interface: Example

Enabling a Local Speed Dial Menu: Example

The following commands enable the Cisco web browser and set the HTTP path to flash memory so that the speeddial.xml file in flash memory is accessible to IP phones:

ip http server

ip http path flash:

 

The following XML file—speeddial.xml, defines three speed-dial numbers that will appear to the user after they press the Directories button on an IP phone.

<CiscoIPPhoneDirectory>
<Title>Local Speed Dial</Title>
<Prompt>Record 1 to 1 of 1 </Prompt>
 
<DirectoryEntry>
  <Name>Security</Name>
  <Telephone>71111</Telephone>
</DirectoryEntry>
 
<DirectoryEntry>
  <Name>Marketing</Name>
  <Telephone>71234</Telephone>
</DirectoryEntry>
 
<DirectoryEntry>
  <Name>Tech Support</Name>
  <Telephone>71432</Telephone>
</DirectoryEntry>
 
</CiscoIPPhoneDirectory>

Personal Speed Dial Menu: Example

The following example creates a directory of three personal speed-dial listings for one IP phone:

ephone 1

 fastdial 1 5489 name Marketing

 fastdial 2 12125550155 name NY Sales

 fastdial 3 12135550112 name LA Sales

Speed-Dial Buttons and Abbreviated Dialing: Example

The following example defines two locked speed-dial numbers with labels to appear next to the speed-dial buttons on ephone 1. These speed-dial definitions are assigned to the next empty buttons after all extensions are assigned. For instance, if two extensions are assigned on the Cisco Unified IP Phones 7960 and 7960G, these speed-dial definitions appear on the third and fourth buttons.

This example also defines two system-level speed-dial numbers with the directory entry command. One is a local extension and the other is a ten-digit telephone number.

ephone 1

 mac-address 1234.5678.ABCD

 button 1:24 2:25

 speed-dial 1 +5002 label Receptionist

 speed-dial 2 +5001 label Security

 

telephony-service

 directory entry 34 5003 name Accounting

 directory entry 45 8185550143 name Corp Acctg

Bulk-Loading Speed Dial: Example

The following example changes the default bulk speed-dial prefix to #7 and enables global bulk speed-dial list number 6 for all phones. It also enables a personal bulk speed-dial list for ephone 25.

telephony-service

 bulk-speed-dial list 6 flash:sd_dept_01_1_87.txt

 bulk-speed-dial prefix #7

 

ephone-dn 3

 number 2555

 

ephone-dn 4

 number 2557

 

ephone 25

 button 1:3 2:4

 bulk-speed-dial list 7 flash:lmi_sd_list_08_24_95.txt

Speed-Dial and Fast-Dial User Interface: Example

The following example shows that the user interface for speed-dial and fast-dial configuration is disabled on phone 12:

ephone 12

 no phone-ui speeddial-fastdial

 ephone-template 5

 mac-address 000F.9054.31BD

 type 7960

 button 1:10 2:7

Where to Go Next

If you are finished creating or modifying speed-dial configurations for individual phones, you must reboot phones to download the modified configuration. See "Resetting and Restarting Phones".

DSS Call Transfer

Monitor-line button speed dial, also known as direct station select (DSS) call transfer, allows you to use a monitored line button to speed-dial a call to that extension. If you want to allow consultation during DSS transfers, see "Configuring Call Transfer and Forwarding".
