Labeling Extensions, Trunks, or Speed dials on Merlin Magix

Through the use of the Labeling feature, the system manager can program the system to provide identification information (labels and posted messages) on display telephones.

Alphanumeric labels can be assigned to the following:

* System Speed Dial Directory – Use this procedure to establish System Speed Dial numbers for all system users. You can also use this procedure to enter the alphanumeric labels shown on display telephones (for the System Directory feature of the MLX telephone).

* Extension Directory Listings – Use this procedure to establish alphanumeric system labels for display telephone users to identify the person calling or leaving a message. This procedure is also used to program the Extension Directory feature for MLX telephones.

* Outside Lines/Trunks – Use this procedure to establish alphanumeric system labels for display telephone users to identify the line or trunk being used.

* Group Calling – Use this procedure to establish alphanumeric system labels for display telephone users to identify calling groups.

* Posted Message – Use this procedure to add or change existing posted messages. The posted messages allow callers with display telephones to know why the called extension does not answer.

* Personal – Use this procedure on an MLX-20L telephone to establish up to 50 Personal Speed Dial numbers with alphanumeric labels. The information entered in the Personal Directory at an MLX-20L telephone allows that user to store, show and dial each of the 50 entries from that phone only.

Note: When programming on the system programming console, use the buttons next to the display to specify the letters A through I and punctuation. Use the line/feature buttons to specify additional alphanumeric characters for labels. Use the template provided with the MLX-20L telephone to see which line buttons correspond to which alphanumeric characters.
