In this guide we will discuss adding contacts to your Local Directory on your Yealink T19p Office phone.
A local directory will allow you to store up to 1000 contacts locally on your phone in up to 6 user defined groups. Once configured when your phone rings the contacts information will be displayed on the T19p's LCD display and you can access and search this phone book / directory to place calls.
This guide will cover:
- Adding contacts to a Local Directory
- Bulk CSV upload
- Using the Phones UI to add contacts
Adding contacts can then be performed in from the phones admin panel or by using your desk phones UI.
Adding contacts through the admin panel
Step 1:: Login to your phones admin panel
If you haven't logged into your phones admin panel before please click here for a full guide.
Step 2:: Navigate to the contacts tab
Navigate to the 'Contacts' Tab on the main menu of your phones admin panel as illustrated below;
Step 3:: Add Contacts
Adding contacts through this interface can be done in one of two ways. Either manually, by filling out the form (see below),
or by uploading a CSV file.
We have included a formatted CSV template below that you can download and populate with your contact information.
