Search in XML-Phonebook - GeorgSchwarz - 05-10-2013 08:05 PM

Hi everyone!

I've been searching the docs fpr some time, but was unable to find an answer. Is there a way to search through an external address book provided via XML on the T26/T28 series?

I have somenthing in mind that just works like on my cellphone...
- I just open the Phonebook via Softkey and then I get my list of contacts
- If I want to contact e.g. George Schulz i Would press 6(G) 33(e) and then the list would be narrowed down to for example

Geerd VanZandt
Gerhard Miller
George Schulz

If I pressed 666 (O) the search would be narrowed down to
George Schulz

When I try this, I only get "The URL is empty" /(using a T26P with FW6.70.0.140)

My Questions
- Is such a functrion implemented natively?
- If not is there something like that planned for future FW releases?
- Is there a workaround via the XML Browser? (There does not seem to be a support fo alphanumeric keys in List apps, just the numbers, if I got the documentation correctly)

It is vital for our customer that the whole thing works exacty as described because they want a cellphone-like look&feel

TIA for your answers
George

I don't see that that works in the 2x series. The 3x seems to be the same way. Yealink is usually pretty good about fixing/adding this stuff.

It does appear to be in the local phonebook though. And there is a softbutton to select how the buttons work (letter or number).
Not sure if this is the same on the 2x series.

I have this same issue. Using 3CX and t28's

I have added the URL on the phone and setup the XML phonebook on the web server, added the extra lines to the XML
"<SoftKeyItem>
<Name>0</Name>
<URL>http://10.0.0.1:5000/provisioning/yealink_phonebook.xml</URL>
</SoftKeyItem>"
for each number but the buttons just go back to the beginning rathan than pick any numbers up.

I use FW 103 but have also tried the latest as of yesterday.
