And more.

Function Keys Supported on IP Phones

You can also provision function keys for IP phones that support Auto Provisioning.

In addition to the function keys mentioned earlier that you can assign to an extension user, you can also configure the following key types for your IP phones:

LDAP Directory: Quickly access the LDAP phonebook to query contact information directly on the IP phone.

Call Forwarding: Enable or disable call forwarding on the IP phone with ease.

Line Keys: Configure line keys for the IP phone.

For IP phones, the number of programmable feature keys depends on the number of line keys your phone supports. If the number of keys you assign exceeds the programmable keys available on your phone, the extra keys will not be functional.
