Default Set Layouts

Default Set Layouts

Default Set Layouts

  We've got three different Definities, with different software releases... but we've tried to standardize our 6402D, 6408D+ and 6424D+ layouts.
  Does anyone know how to set the default set layouts (typically, screens 3 & 4, and screen 5 for the 6424D+) for these set types?
  This would make administration a bit easier and help keep the sets standardized. Thanks!

RE: Default Set Layouts

You can use the command "Dup St xxxx" while administering the extension. Duplicate command will copy the button/COR/COS/Cov Path etc. of the primary extn. "xxxx" to the range of ext. provided. Seperate commands would have to be given for different phone types 6402, 6408D+, 6424d+.

Hope this would help


RE: Default Set Layouts

Hi Doug,

As already mentioned you can set up fake (dummy) extensions with the standard layout for each type of phone in every switch. Of these dummy extensions you can duplicate the new stations with the mentioned command. If this is too much you shoudl consider buying DSA (Definity Site Administration) from AVAYA. In this program you can setup standarised layouts which can be used to setup a whole range of extensions with the same layout. Which would make changing existing extension more efficient as well..



RE: Default Set Layouts

  Thanks for the posts so far, but we're already DUPing existing stations. The problem is most common when upgrading a phone from, say, a 6402D to a 6408D+. We change the set type, and then have to change the button assignments from the system's defaults. What we'd really like to do is change the system's defaults.
  Thanks, again!
