For phone settings, you can link the settings for your phones. When you link phones on a particular phone setting, Unified Communications Self Care Portal applies your configuration for that phone setting to all of your phones. For example, if you have three phones and you link your speed dial numbers for the three phones, all three phones share the same speed dial configuration. If you update a speed dial number for one of the phones, Unified Communications Self Care Portal automatically applies that speed dial number for the other phones as well. To apply a unique phone setting on a linked phone, unlink the phones.
Unified Communications Self Care links and unlinks each phone setting separately. As a result, you can link settings for one specific phone setting, such as speed dial numbers, while leaving another phone setting, such as voicemail notifications, unlinked. By default, all phone settings are linked.
You can link or unlink settings by clicking the Linked/Unlinked icon. The icon displays the current state of whether your phones are linked or unlinked.
The following graphic displays how a set of phones with linked Services appears in the user interface. Since Services are currently linked, the Linked icon displays and the settings apply to all three phones. You can click the Linked icon to unlink the phones and apply unique settings for each phone.
Figure 2. Linked Settings
The following graphic displays how a set of phones with unlinked Speed Dial Numbers settings appears in the user interface. In this case, the displayed settings apply to My Jabber only. Since the settings are unique for each phone, the Unlinked icon displays. You can click the icon to apply the same settings for all three phones.
