Hi,
I'd like to use the Asterisk Phone Book to store speed dials. It works well with our SPA942, however it doesn't show the name of the phone book entry when calling a speed dial.

Is this possible?
Cheers

The SPA942 shows the name presented in the Caller ID, which is generally set in the Extension properties, or for general inbound calls its set by the trunk / ITSP.

The Phone Book is used for a dial-by-name directory, so if you set the Phone Book as an option in your IVR, it'll check the names you've set in there rather than the Ext display names.

Hope this helps clarify a little

Cheers


Chill.
