Hi Clark,

I agree with my friend Carlo here (+5 )

So my first thought would be to upgrade the manager phone to a

model that has more line buttons and can support a really easy 5

speed-dial buttons with labels etc. But managers hate to spend money $$

and they are generally unreasonable to boot so we'll look at plan B

You can use Abbreviated Dials (as Carlo nicely noted) that do not use a Line Button

The  Speed Dials that are configured by the User via ccmuser are associated  with spare Line Buttons (if any are available)and the remainder are  accessed via the AbbrDial Softkey (Abbreviated Dial)

In  this test scenario the 7962 has a Button Template called 3-Line  3-Speeddial so the first 3 that are setup via ccmuser take Line Button  4,5 and 6. The remainder are accessed by keeping the Handset On-Hook,  dialing the applicable Speed Dial Code (for example 5 followed by  pressing the AbbrDial Softkey) the number programmed against Speed Dial 5 will then be called;

The following options are available for SEP00170EEE2F88 (Test Q335):

Forward all calls to a different number

Add/Update your Speed Dials

Configure your Cisco IP Phone Services

Configure your Cisco Personal Address Book

Change the Message Waiting Lamp policy for your phone

Change the Ring Settings for your phone

Change the Locale for this phone

Change the Locale for these web pages

Change your Password

Change your PIN

Add/Update Your Speed Dials

Configure the Speed Dial Buttons for your Cisco 7961 (SEP00170EEE2F88)

Use  this page to enter the phone numbers you want associated with each of  your Speed Dial buttons. When you are done, click Update.

You'll like want to fire this up as well to appease the manager

Off-Hook Abbreviated Dialing

Cisco   Unified Communications Manager release 7.1(2) (firmware 8.5(2))   introduces Off-Hook Abbreviated Dialing. The user can initiate Off-Hook   Abbreviated Dialing while conferencing a call, while transferring a   call, or while placing a new call after putting a call on hold.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Note   The phone must be assigned a softkey set that includes the AbbrDial   softkey before it can be used. The softkey can be assigned by using the   Softkey Template Configuration for the following states-Offhook,  Offhook  with Feature, and Digits After First.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The following Cisco Unified IP Phones (SCCP and SIP) support Off-Hook Abbreviated Dialing:

Hi.

You can also dial the abbreviate dial number, without going offhook, just press the abbreviated dial numer as Aman suggested and press AbbrDial softkey.

The phone will then activate the speakerphone dialing the number defined on that Abbreviated dial ID.

Hi Clark.

As alternative to Speed dial, you can consider Abbreviated Dialing option.

You can configure them on Speed Dial section of phone configuration Page.

What he should do is press the number of configured Abbreviated dial number and press AbbrDial softkey on the phone

For personal address book, you can use the personal address book.

b. Select A Call State to Configure : Digits after First  with Select Keys as Abbreviated Dial

c. Select a Call State to Configure :OffHook with Feature with Select Keys as Abbreviated Dial

Re: CUCM Speed Dial

Because thats no how you use abbr dial, you just need to dial 1 (or whatever abbrdial entry you want to dial) and press the abbrdial softkey.
