New features and optimization since the last firmware release.
Supported PBX Models: S50, S100, S300, Yeastar Cloud PBX, K2 IP-PBX
Take advantage of a native Contacts management on S-Series VoIP PBX, Cloud PBX, and K2 IP-PBX. The brand-new Contacts feature is developed as a built-in PBX functionality for users to efficiently create, manage, share, and dial business and personal contacts, within one platform and across multiple devices.
With the feature, PBX admins can create a list of Company Contacts that can be shared with certain members of the organization. And Individual extensions will also be able to create and manage Personal Contacts exclusive to themselves. So entire company can work from a single, unified contacts management system, while still maintaining the privacy of personal contacts, on an individual level.
Besides, all Contacts added are synchronized with the Linkus Mobile Client to enable easy contact dialing. Incoming calls will also be matched based on the caller ID – so that callers are shown with their name, rather than a string of less familiar phone number.
Feature Details & Configuration: For more details about the Contacts feature and its configuration, please refer to the feature guide here: for S-Series VoIP PBX, for Yeastar Cloud PBX, for K2 IP-PBX.
