Add caller ID name alert on outgoing internal calls

I have a switchvox system using IP560 and IP330 phones.  Currently when we dial an internal extension it just displays the extension number you dialed.  I would like for it to once it startes ringing the other party to display that party's extension name.  Anyone know the configuration to make this work?  We are not using tokens.

Re: Add caller ID name alert on outgoing internal calls

Hello JasonB,


welcome to the Polycom Community.


As already discussed in this post => here <= the feature to match outgoing calls is not implemented.


As you have not stated what UCS/SIP Software you are running I recommend the UCS 3.3.0 Admin Guide from => here <= as this mentions the following on Page A - 125:




If set to 1, the name fields of the local contact directory entries which match incoming calls will be used for caller identification display and in the call lists instead of the name provided through network signaling.


Note: There is no matching of outgoing calls. There is no matching to corporate directory entries.


Above requested feature is a basic functionality in many SIP Switches like Asterisk etc. and you should work with switchvox to get this feature working from their end.


An alternative could be raising this via your Polycom Reseller as a Feature request if you can provide a business case for it.


Best regards
