    Hello!

    Appreciate the help so far with 3CX. As we get more and more customers, the special requests start to flow! :)

    I am certain this gets asked often, however, are we able to "program" any of the Line keys on the softphone?

    This follows on from my Desk phone to Soft phone hand off thread. The only way I can see getting this to work is using the Park rooms. *0x and *1x etc.

    In general customers are lazy and only want to hit one or two buttons to perform a feature today.

    Transferring to a * code and back again is far too complex for some people and while I spent 10 years on the IP Office and many many features are available via star codes, I think gone are those days..............

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi Sean,

    If I have understood your requirement correctly this absolutely possible.

    Simply create a "custom speed dial" in the BLF page which contains the star code. I do this all the time with *20* (call pickup).

    NOTE: if you want these buttons across the board then you don't have to configure each extension separately. If in the extensions page you hold down the ctrl key while clicking - you can select multiple extensions.
