Set up DSS Key as shortcut to View Voicemail Menu
Good Morning.

I'm pretty sure this is possible but haven't been able to work out how to do it exactly.
One of my clients has a couple of shared mailboxes attached to 6 phones at their practice. Currently it requires 4 or 5 key presses to get to the "View Voicemail" menu where they can see which mailbox currently has voicemail. (The phone does have MWI but no way to tell at a glance which account has the voicemail). As such I would like to set up a DSS key to allow them to get to this sub-menu with a single key press if possible.

Sure. DSS Key type Custom Key and the value is:
Code:
$Iview_voice_mail$

RE: Set up DSS Key as shortcut to View Voicemail Menu
Thank you for this. I'm now having another issue. I have updated the provisioning file to enabled enhanced DSS but I still do not have an option for custom on the phone. I set features.enhanced_dss_keys.enable to 1 to accomplish this.

The phone in question is a T42S running firmware 66.85.0.5

I guess you mistyped something or didn't reprovision successfully afterward...

How about you manually import this config file to the phone?

Unfortunately adding those lines did not resolve the issue. It seems that the phone doesn't recognize type 73 as valid as the button doesn't show up on the phone. I have attached the current config of the phone for review.

I noticed in that file that there was an additional line that read linekey.4.type = 0 after the initial type variable that I have since removed. When the phone provisions, that dsskey is blank and in the GUI shows up as type line

RE: Set up DSS Key as shortcut to View Voicemail Menu
In the exported config I see a line
Code:
linekey.4.type =  0

This is obviously conflicting the key type you're actually trying to add...

I mentioned in one of my other replies that I saw that and removed it. The result is still the same. Attached is the current config of the phone with the filename of 805EC05927E1 (2).cfg

In this one the enhanced_dss_keys is commented out...

Yisroel,

Sorry for the delay I've had a lot going on. That was definitely the problem, I feel foolish! Thanks for all your help and patience.
