Configuring Speed-dial and Abbreviated dial setup on CUCM

 

 

Introduction

 

This document covers the procedure for configuring Speed-dial and Abbreviated dial setup. This procedure is applicable to Cisco Unified Communications Manager Version 7.x / 8.x / 9.x

 

Configuring Speed-Dial Buttons or Abbreviated Dialing

 

You use Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration to configure speed-dial buttons for phones if you want to provide speed-dial buttons for users or if you are configuring phones that do not have a specific user who is assigned to them. Users use Cisco Unified CM User Options to change the speed-dial buttons on their phones.

 

 

From CUCM 8.x onwards, system provides a total of 199 speed-dial and abbreviated-dial settings.

 

Speed Dial Settings

Configure these settings for the physical buttons on the phone.

 

Abbreviated Dial Settings

Configure these settings for the speed-dial numbers that you access with abbreviated dialing. When the user configures up to 199 speed-dial entries, part of the speed-dial entries can get assigned to the speed-dial buttons on the IP phone; the remaining speed-dial entries get used for abbreviated dialing. When a user starts dialing digits, the AbbrDial softkey displays on the phone, and the user can access any speed-dial entry by entering the appropriate index (code) for abbreviated dialing.

 

Note: Not all Cisco Unified IP Phones support abbreviated dialing. See the phone user guide for information

Thanks for this info but if I have to do this task (configuring abbreviate dial num) on 50 phones, how do I do that? Obviously,  doing one phone at a time would be very painful!!! Thanks

Hello Gary

Thanks for your comments.  You can configure the phones in bulk by using BAT. Please check the url for more details.
