Re: 7931 directory option

Hello zeeshan2007,

From the below link:

Place a Call from Your Local Directory

To access the local phone directory established by the system administrator, use the following method:

1. Press Menu, navigate to locate Directories, and then press the Select button.

2. Press 4 on the keypad or navigate to the Local Directory.

3. Use the Navigation pad to select the Last, First, or Number field search option.

4. Use the keypad to enter the last name or first name for the entry.

Hope this helps, if so please rate my advice.

Re: 7931 directory option

What system are you on? CCM or CME?

In order for 7931 to use Directories, Settings etc, you have to create a separate template. After you have assign the template, these buttons will be on the last 4 buttons (top 4 buttons on the phones).

Re: 7931 directory option

Sorry, did not see that you have indicated you are on CCME.

See below for the template I have created for my 7931 users on CME. Assign the new template to the 7931 phone.
