RE: Modern Yealink Phonebook Generation Tool
An xml file is just a text file with a specific formatting.
You can use the Yealink examples to create a remote phone book. I ended up creating a spreadsheet that takes the first name, last name, extension/phone number (x2) and puts it into the format below.

Do not use dashes between number digits (like 234-555-8890). If the phone is configured to use the phonebook as a caller ID lookup, the incoming # will not match up with a number that has dashes.

This is the Remote Phonebook format that I use, the local phonebook (or contacts) is formatted differently and allows for different features.
<DirectoryEntry><Name>John Smith</Name><Telephone>6400</Telephone><Telephone>2345558890</Telephone></DirectoryEntry>
<DirectoryEntry><Name>Mitch Jones</Name><Telephone>6402</Telephone><Telephone>2347235890</Telephone></DirectoryEntry>

I use the above format so I can keep each entry on it's own line but another valid format (and more commonly seen with XML is below). It is also easier when using a spreadsheet as it keeps the information all on one line.

<Name>John Smith</Name>
<Name>Mitch Jones</Name>
