Programmable keys

Note

The FortiVoice user portal only shows the Programmable Keys menu, if you are using a FortiFone desk phone that supports programmable keys.

The Programmable Keys menu allows you to program phone keys for specific functions and easier call control.

Your FortiVoice system administrator can define keys as admin-assigned (Phone System > Profile > Programmable Keys). You cannot customize these keys. However, your FortiVoice system administrator can also define other keys as user-assigned, allowing you to program them yourself from the user portal.

Note

Keys 1 and 2 are reserved by default and you cannot edit them. Your FortiVoice system administrator may choose to reserve up to the first four lines.

To set programmable keys
  1. Click the account icon.
  2. Click Programmable Keys.
  3. In the list, you can see which keys are reserved, admin-assigned, and user-assigned.

    For this example extension, the user has one Page, or twelve keys. Lines 1 and 2 designated as Reserved, followed by two more lines that have been admin-assigned to specific functions. The remaining keys are designated as User Assigned. If necessary, contact your administrator to get more user assigned keys, which would then be configured under Page 2 and Page 3.

  4. For each User Assigned key that you want to add, complete the following fields. For more details about each key, see Programmable key descriptions.
    • In Function, select the type of action to occur when you press the programmable key.
    • In Resource, select the result of the selected function, if applicable.
    • In Label, keep the default or enter a name that will appear beside the programmable key on the FortiFone device.
  5. Click OK.
