My users are using a Cisco 7911 ip phone. They would like me to set one of the buttons on the phone to be in speaker phone mode when the button is pressed. At the moment the only way they can use the speaker phone is to answer the phone by picking up the handset and then pressing the monitor button which will put the phone in speaker mode once they place the handset back on the phone receiver. What I would like to know. Is there way I can configure a button in Call Manager Express that would allow them to put the phone in speaker mode without picking up the handset?
When modifying a 7911 button schema on my CUCM which is 8.6 I see nothing that lets you set a button settings since there are no hard line keys. This is further reinforced by the fact that these phones were designed with a small business, limited use mindset. If you want this capability get a 7942/62 series where you can simply press the line you want to answer or dial out.
