Creating and Assigning Directories
To assign a directory to phones via Button Builder, click the Directory button from within the interface.
Select the Directory source on the left.
In the Directory field to the right, you can toggle certain contacts appearing in the Directory by clicking the eye icon. If the icon is grayed out, the extension will not display in the directory.
When complete, click Done. The phone will require a reboot to sync the updated Directory.
You can add Directories to Templates, streamlining and standardizing initial setups. See the next section on creating Templates.
Creating and Assigning Templates
You can create Templates to be used across multiple devices. Templates are generally device-specific, although some similar model phones can interchange Templates.
To create a Template, click the Templates button within the interface, then click Add or edit configuration templates. You can also reach Templates by clicking the drop-down next to Button Builder from the main Phone Hardware screen by clicking Manage configuration templates.
Provide the Template Name and Description, and select the appropriate Model from the drop-down.
Click Add. You will be presented with a blank Button Builder interface.
After configuring the Template, click Save at the bottom of the screen.
Ensure that Line 1 is devoted to the Line Appearance option. The value field will display Cannot assign lines in templates, disregard this. The Template will pull Line 1 from the phone it is assigned to and automatically assign it.
When the Template has been saved, return to the Phone Inventory screen. Click the checkbox to the left of each phone you wish to apply the template to (if all phones, click the top checkbox), then click the down arrow next to the Button Builder button.
Click Apply a template to selected devices.
Select the Template you created from the Configuration Templates menu on the right.
Click Apply to apply the Template to the phone.
The Button Builder configuration will take effect on the phone's next reboot. To force this immediately, click the up arrow next to the Apply button and select Apply and Resync.
