Hi,


I am having 7940 IP Phones with 2 lines configured for separate extensions. One is used for VOIP calls and the second is used for PSTN calls.


On th phone instead of individual directory numbers I want to have "VOIP" and "PSTN" in the display. Is this possible?


Thanks,

Pete

Hi Pete,

Yes, go to CCMAdmin | Device | Phone | Look for the Directory Number and configure that under Line Text Label.

Hi Pete,


You can use the Line Text Label to accomplish this. Have a look;


Directory Number Configuration Page


Line Settings for This Device


Display (Internal Caller ID)

External Phone Number Mask

**Line Text Label**

Message Waiting Lamp Policy

Ring Setting (Phone Idle)


Ring Setting (Phone Active)**



Line Text Label


Use this field only if you do not want the directory number to show on the line appearance. Enter text that identifies this directory number for a line/phone combination.


Suggested entries include boss's name, department's name, or other appropriate information to identify multiple directory numbers to secretary/assistant who monitors multiple directory numbers.


Setting applies only to the current device.


From this good doc;

Hope this helps!

Rob
