System Speed Dial
Program a list of up to 100 frequently-dialed numbers for the system by using System Speed Dial. After you have programmed the numbers, anyone on the system can dial a System Speed Dial number by pressing f (or # at intercom dial tone on a single-line telephone) and the three digit code, from 600 through 699, for that number. You can mark System Speed Dial numbers to override dialing restrictions.
A System Speed Dial number can be up to 28 characters in length and can consist of the digits
0—9, *, #, and the special dialing characters. You assign the number to one of the codes 600 through 699.
- At extension 10 or 11, dial Feature 00
- Press Feature followed by a 3-digit speed dial code (600-699)
- Dial phone number (Up to 28 digits including special dialing characters.)
- Dial Feature 00 to end

You can store account codes as System Speed Dial numbers for use with the Account Code Entry feature.
A System Speed Dial number can begin with a star code; the system automatically inserts a delay based on the Star Code Dial Delay (#410) setting. To program, enter a Pause followed by the star code and the telephone number. (For example, press (Hold)*675551001.)
To program System Speed Dial numbers that override dialing restrictions, mark them by entering a star * before the telephone number. Marked System Speed Dial numbers appear on the SMDR call report as (Feature) nnn, where nnn is the Speed Dial code. The digits in a Marked Speed Dial number do not appear on displays.
A Marked System Speed Dial number can begin with a star code. To enter it, press * followed by the star code and the telephone number. (For example, press **675551001.)
You cannot program System Speed Dial codes on Auto Dial buttons.
You can program System Speed Dial numbers only from extension 10 or 11, but you can use them from any extension.
Use a completed System Speed Dial form to program the list of numbers. After programming the numbers, distribute a copy of the completed form to users.
If the system is connected to a PBX or Centrex system and a dial-out code (usually 9) is needed to place calls outside the PBX or Centrex system, include the dial-out code and one or more pauses (if available) in Speed Dial numbers that must dial out of the PBX or Centrex system.
If you program 911 or other emergency numbers as Speed Dial numbers and want to place test calls, do the following:
– Perform such activities in the off-peak hours, such as early morning or late evening.
– Remain on the line and explain to the dispatcher the reason for the call before hanging up.
You can use multiple Auto Dial buttons and Speed Dial numbers during the course of a single call. For example, you can use an Auto Dial button or Speed Dial number to dial the Account Code Entry feature code, and another Speed Dial number to dial the account code.
