No, you only get to configure the softkey options you see, there's no option for directories under any softkey, nor can they be customized.

To create a relative place holder for a softkey, add the Undefined  softkey. This allows the softkey that you added to occupy the same  softkey position in all call states.

The "undefined softkey" is just a way to leave a gap between other softkeys. Exmaple:


Without the "undefined softkey"


Redial Newcall CfwdALL


With the "underfined softkey"


Redial "BLANK SPACE" Newcall CfwdALL

Yes as long as you put the "undefined softkey" in the same position.

Dear,


By providing a space in between what cisco wants to proof. what is the use of that, that doesnt make any sense.


As the name defines it is undefined that means cisco should provide some way to customize the undefined key.


Please suggest


Thanks

Adam,

The "undefined softkey" is really for environments where users get easily confused by softkeys that can be used in mutliple states, being in different locations. The softkey could also be used as an empty space, for a future softkey to replace.

If the request is to reduce the number of button presses, I can offer two options:

  • Use a 8961/9900 series phone where the missed calls directory appears on the session buttons (right-hand side of the display) as a button. This has the advantage of actually showing whether there are missed calls.
  • Replicate the Missed Call directory URL as a generic service URL, modify the Phone Button Template to add a Service URL-type butotn, and subscribe the service to that button.
