Populating Buttons on VVX Expansion Bay

Phone Model VVX 601

SfB Online  

UC Software Version


The VVX 601 phones will automatically load the buttons with the contacts with the Contacts added to the Favorites group in the Skype client.   This works well for most users.   I'm looking for a way to populate the other buttons with the contents of the other groups displayed in the Skype client.


For example, we have a "Minneapolis Staff" distribution group which when added to the Skype client dynamically adds all of the individuals.   We'd like to have those appear on the VVX601 (and on the expansion modules as needed).


Alternately, is there a better way to handle keeping the buttons loaded with the presense information for everyone in an office? We're looking for a way to do this for our receptionists who handle inbound calls to our main office number.
