Most Avaya phones have programmable buttons to which a variety of functions can be assigned. This menu can be used to edit the button settings. It can also be used to adjust the automatic line selection order used by the phone.
•Note that for systems running in Key System mode, a number of each users programmable buttons are automatically configured as line appearance button according to the system Number of Lines setting. If the system setting Number of Lines is changed, it may overwrite all or some of the current button programming.
The menu can operate in either of two ways, depending on whether the phone type is known or not. See the Handset setting.
(Unknown phone type)
(Known phone type)
This drop down list is used to select the extension user whose programmed buttons are displayed for editing.
When a configuration is loaded from the telephone system at Manager start-up, if the type of phone currently plugged into the extension port is recognized, the menu switches to graphical mode and displays a picture of the phone. If the phone type is not known, the menu can either be used in non-graphical mode or a phone type can be selected from the drop down list to switch to graphical mode.
•For some phones the system can only detect the likely type. For example, M7100, M7100N, T7100 or ACU telephones are all initially listed as being an M7100. The drop-down list allows selection of the exact model if required.
