I have 70+ offices with various setups. In some cases I have 7975 and 7965 phones with 1 or 2 sidecars, up to the main office with 3 recepionists with 2x 7916 sidecars with 48 potential buttons.
Right now if I want to add an employee, I have to either go through each sidecar, and basically re-enter the information past the point of the new hire, because we keep them in alphabetical order.
Or, I have to export all details, convert to spreadsheet, find the section with the BLFs, transpose that, update it, transpose it back, convert the file back to CSV, upload to CUCM, and then import the file. We hire/move/fire 8-10 people a month lately (as we prepare for 30 percent of our work force to hit retirement age in the next 5 years), and this is a LOT of effort.
Surely there is a better way?
