Abbreviated Dialing/Speed Dial

Abbreviated Dialing/Speed Dial
Abbreviated Dialing/Speed Dial gives an extension user quick access to frequently called numbers. This saves time, for example, when calling a client with whom they deal often. Instead of dialing a long telephone number, the extension user just dials the Speed Dialing code.
There are three types of Speed Dialing: System, Group and Station. All co-workers can share the System Speed Dialing numbers. All co-workers in the same Speed Dialing Group can share the Group Speed Dialing numbers. Station Speed Dialing numbers are available only at a user’s own extension. The system has 1000 Speed Dialing bins that you can allocate between System and Group Speed Dialing and a maximum of 32 Speed Dialing Groups are available. Each extension has 10 Station Speed Dial bins.
Each Speed Dialing bin can store a number with up to 36 digits.
When placing a not an Speed Dialing call, the system normally routes the call through Trunk Group Routing or ARS (whichever is enabled). Or, the user can preselect a specific trunk for the call. Also the system can optionally force System Speed Dialing numbers to route over a specific Trunk Group. User selection always overrides the system routing.
System Bins Limited to 900 with Speaker Key or #2 Service Code
Though there are 1000 Speed Dialing bins available in the system, once programmed, these bins can currently be dialed only using the Directory Dial feature (Press Directory key + SYS softkey + use arrow keys to locate number or enter the Speed Dial bin name + Speaker key to place call.)
The Speaker key and service code #2 operations are not available for any 4-digit Speed Dial System bin number.
DSS Console Chaining
DSS Console chaining allows an extension user with a DSS Console to chain to a not an Speed Dialing number stored under a DSS Console key. The stored number dials out (chains) to the initial call. This can, for example, simplify dialing when calling a company with an Automated Attendant. You can program the bin for the company number under one DSS Console key (e.g., 81300) and the client’s extension number under the other (e.g., 81301). The DSS Console user presses the first key to call the company, waits for the Automated Attendant to answer, then presses the second key to call the client (extension 400). See the Programming section below for additional details.
The DSS Console user can also chain to a number not in the Speed Dial list dialed manually, from a Programmable Function Key or a One-Touch Key.
Storing a Flash
To enhance compatibility with connected Centrex and PBX lines, Speed Dialing bin can have a stored Flash command. For example, storing 9 Flash 926 5400 causes the system to dial 9, flash the line and then dial 926 5400. The Flash can be stored by the user from their telephone or by the system administrator during system programming.
Using a Programmable Function Key
To streamline frequently-called numbers, a Speed Dialing Programmable Function Key can also store a Speed Dialing bin number. When the extension user presses the key, the telephone automatically dials out the stored number. This provides true one-touch calling via telephone function keys.
