                Speed Dial on Web

                Depending on configuration, your phone can support several speed-dial features that are set up from the web:

                • If your speed-dial label contains more than 11 characters, use a shorter label because labels are shortened from the left. For example, "Customer Service" displays as "…er Service" on the screen.

                    Fast Dials Setup

                    For more information, see Personal Directory on Web.

                    You can also set up Fast Dials on your phone. See the Personal Directory.

                    Personal Directory on Web

                    The Personal Directory feature set that you can access on your computer consists of:

                    Tips
                    • You can create up to 500 Fast Dial and PAB entries.
                    • You can create a new Fast Dial entry without using a PAB entry. Such Fast Dial entries, which are labeled "raw" in the User Options web pages, do not display a configurable text label.
