Updating Busy Lamp Field (BLF) Keys

Yealink T40G BLF Keys LitFrom within your VirtualPBX Dashboard, you can update your auto-provisioned VoIP phone to make use of Combo/BLF keys.

This allows you to make use of Presence, additional lines, parking/retrieving calls, or speed dial provided your VoIP phone allows for these features.

Presence: Will allow you to see if a colleague is on a call or not
Additional line: Add another set of SIP credentials (ie 3rd party softphone) to make/receive calls with. This can be from another account or simply allow 1 phone to handle multiple calls. This softphone will count as an additional VoIP device
Parking/Retrieving: Place a call in a parking spot so that the call can be picked up at another VoIP phone
Speed dial: Quickly call another user or phone number

Use the following steps to access and adjust your BLF keys.
