    I just tried the full demo version to try the 'central phonebook' but cant see how it works... or is it the feature to provision hardware phones with a directory??

    what we would like is something along the lines of the microsoft addressbook, but where we can all ad or edit numbers and just click to dial :)

    Is there a nice simple software based phonebook that will work? we are quite a small business and the complexities of a full exchange server would be far too costly and over the top! just for a phonebook

    Hey there,

    When provisioning, supported phones also get the address book.

    A future version of the 3CX VoIP client will also support the address book.

    Thanks,

    am i correct ina beliving the provisioned phonebook is the one that transfers to the phones memory?

    what we need is a windows based phonebook that contains clients addresses and phone numbers, with the option to click a number to dial... is this an option?? its something that had been demoed with another phone system which seemed a nice simple idea! :)

    1) Yes, correct

    2) The 3CX VoIP Client will serve this purpose once phonebook provisioning support is added (commercial version)

    Thanks,

    Im currently running the Full 2 line version of the software and the voip client has the 'phone book' thing with red/green/yellow dots next to the extension numbers, but I couldnt see how to add a real number to the list? is there a tick box somewhere that I have forgotten to select?! :)

    Hi,

    Do you know approximately when this feature will be implemented in the 3cxvoipclient ?

    Understand that it is a little bit strange to add this function on the server when you can't use it with the "natural" client.....

    Hi Matt,

    look in C:\Documents and Settings\XXXXX\Local Settings\Application Data\3CX VoIP Client on your pc (where XXXXX is your userid)
    There is a file speeddials.ini where you will find what your are looking for.

    Best regards
    Bertrand
