One on the most convenient features of the Virtual PBX® is the phone directory. It is a list of frequently called persons and their phone numbers. To perform out-bound dialing using the phone directory, the system administrator must first have given out-bound dialing privileges to the extension.
If this is the case, out-bound dialing by name is done by dialing
It is possible to cancel a call after it has been dialed or to make multiple out-bound calls without having to reenter the system each time. Simply dial * at any time to force a hang-up on the outbound line and return to the out- bound dialing menu.
This time dial
If instead 31 after the password, 33 is dialed; another extension in the Virtual PBX® may be dialed. In this case dialing * goes directly to the extension’s voice mail rather than returning to the dialing menu. However it is possible to get back to the dialing menu after leaving a voice message. Normally after speaking a message simply hanging up will send the message. Another option, however, is to wait; and at the end of the message the system will prompt with various menu items. One of these options is dial a 2 to send the message. After the message has been sent the system will automatically return to the dialing menu, and other out-bound numbers may be dialed.
To create a new entry in the phone directory dial
The *’s would be used for example to return to the point where the new entry could actually be dialed. Also pressing *’s until the system says “Good bye” and then hanging up (while not absolutely necessary) provides a slightly cleaner exit from the system. The meaning of the string 2131 is: 2, Access phone extensions; 1, Access phone numbers; 3, Review or edit the phone directory; and 1, Create a new phone directory entry.
