Feature Button Keys

Feature Button Keys

(OP)
How do you create a template to change the station line feature buttons for an Avaya 6416D+, and then apply it to multiple phones? I currently have GEDI which has a template builder wizard.

RE: Feature Button Keys

Are you talking about making labels? If so I don't like the "Print Button Labels" in DSA. I use Excel and have made labels for all the phones I have to support (74xx and 64xx).
I'd be glad to email the template to you. I keep everyones labels on file. Makes it easy to email labels to users when changes are made. I have fun with it and call it their arts and crafts time as they have to cut the label out.

If you're talking about duplicating the buttons in software, the only way I know to do that is "dup stat xxxx", then fill in the blanks. I don't think you can apply this to an existing phone but only to a new phone ot phones.

Create the 6416D+ first.
Then under Advanced on the left side table in your ASA/DSA clicke 'create new template'. walk through the wizard using the new 6416D+ that you just created. When doen click on the bottom tab called 'tree' and look for the template you just created. Here you can move the template to whatever folder you want or create one yourself just like Windows Explorer. Go back to the Advance tab and now select the 'Use template' feature and through its wizard select the template you created and use it to make another station.

If you do not know of any free extensions to use for your station id, simply click the button with <...> and it will look in your dial plan for an available number.

OOPS! Did I miss-understand your question?

FixerOfPhones,
You know, you learn somethin new everyday. While I may be the one that misunderstood the intent of the original question, I did not know about the template procedure you described, so it worked out for the good. I like it.

RE: Feature Button Keys

You can also select "Import Data" and select the radio button for "change" and then select the template that you want to use their.  A large spreadsheet-type window will pop-up.  Anything that you type or paste in that window will override what is in the template, so you can use their existing CORs and COS and such and just change the buttons.

Usually if I have to make a massive change, I create a template of how I want the phone to look, then I export all of the stations that I want to change, open the export file in Excel, copy the information, select "Import Data" with the change option and the template I want to use, Paste the exported data into the screen (So that names, ports, cos, cor and such won't change), click the save button and then the run button.

RE: Feature Button Keys

Sadly, station buttons are not part of the import/export change method.  Using the template is the only way I know of to change the station buttons, other than one station at a time.

RE: Feature Button Keys

Susan,
When selection the import option, you can select a template to import with.  Then you have the best of both worlds.

RE: Feature Button Keys

Ohhhhhh.  That's neat, I hadn't used that option before.  Thanks for the tip!

RE: Feature Button Keys

marcell,
By import option do you mean the Import Data icon.
