Configuring phone profiles

This option is only available for FortiFone 260i and above.

Phone profiles contain the phone configurations that are mostly used and customized, such as the programmable phone keys. Phone profiles make extension configuration more flexible because phone users are allowed to choose the profile they want. In addition, any changes the administrator makes to a profile is automatically applied to the extensions that use the profile.

If your administrator has applied an administrator defined phone profile to your extension, you can only view your phone profile. If your administrator has applied a user defined phone profile to your extension or you choose User defined phone profile in Choosing extension preferences, you can configure your phone profile.

To configure a phone profile

  1. Go to Phone Profile.
  2. Configure the following:
