Manage Your Time More Wisely with BLF (Busy Lamp Field) Indicators: Yealink BLF and Other Top, Trusted VoIP Desk Phones
The BLF, or Busy Lamp Field, indicator is one of the most useful features in a phone system. The BLF lets you know who’s available before picking up your phone or transferring a call. If someone is on a call, their extension light will be lit red. If the person or extension you are looking for is available, you will see a green light next to their name. This tells you exactly who is available on demand and lets you prioritize accordingly.
How Are VoIP BLF Keys Configured?
Thanks to the work of our device compatibility experts, connecting your Busy Lamp Field Keys to your VirtualPBX Business Phone Service so that your phone has a live status of others on your plan is simple. Yealink BLF, for example can be setup in two ways:
- Select your empty BLF keys on your phone itself, type in the display name and corresponding extension number
- Or, for faster entry with a bulk list, head to the Yealink BLF settings on the phone’s web interface (pro tip: nearly all VoIP phones have a web interface you can make updates in, just find the IP address on your phone and type it into your browser’s address bar.)
