Dial a specific extension using its system ID. This may be necessary in hot desking environments where some extensions have been created with no default extension number. Without an extension number, a call can not be made to that extension unless a short code is created.
Default Short Code
*71*N# (U-Law only)
Short Code Toggles
Phone Manager Control
Programmable Button Control

In the above example, if the telephone at extension ID 16 is not associated with an extension number, a user can dial *97 to connect to that phone.
Short Code: *97
Telephone Number: 16
This feature allows a short code to be created to force the outgoing call to use the Speech bearer capability.
