CME Line Descriptions - Easy Question

How do I get line descriptions on the phones in CME?  NAME and DESCRIPTION under the ephone-dn doesn't do it.  Basically I just need button 4 to say "Front Desk 5000" rather than simply the extension "5000".

Hi Kyle,

These are called "Labels" in CME

SCCP: Creating Labels for Directory Numbers

To create a label to display in place of the number next to a line button, perform the following steps.

Prerequisites

Directory number for which the label is to be created is already configured. For configuration information, see the "SCCP: Creating Directory Numbers" section.

SUMMARY STEPS

1. enable

2. configure terminal

3. ephone-dn dn-tag

4. label label-string

5. end

DETAILED STEPS


Command or Action
Purpose

Step 1 

enable

Example:

Router> enable

Enables privileged EXEC mode.

Enter your password if prompted.

Step 2 

configure terminal

Example:

Router# configure terminal

Enters global configuration mode.

Step 3 

ephone-dn dn-tag

Example:

Router(config)# ephone-dn 1

Enters ephone-dn configuration mode.

dn-tag—Unique sequence number that identifies the ephone-dn to which the label is to be associated.

Step 4 

label label-string

Example:

Router(config-ephone-dn)# label user1

Creates a custom label that is displayed on the phone next to the line  button that is associated with this ephone-dn. The custom label replaces  the default label, which is the number that was assigned to this  ephone-dn.

label-string—String of up to 30 alphanumeric characters that provides the label text.

Step 5 

end

Example:

Router(config-ephone)# end

Returns to privileged EXEC mode.

What to Do Next

If you are done modifying parameters for phones in Cisco Unified CME, generate a new configuration file and restart the phones.
