I have been all over the place trying to find out how to find the script to add a soft key to a Polycom 331 running 3.3.0. that would make a one-touch forwarding key to a specific extension. Here is what I have made so far. I have added two keys one for forwarding (softkey2 "Fwd-108") and one for reversing the forwarding (Softkey3 "Un-fwd"). The file gets loaded and the buttons actually work, but only once after the phone is booted. If i use them again, then buttons do not follow the same process (button pushes) and it fails. I'm wondering if there is a simpler way to accomplish this other than what I have here:
<softkey softkey.feature.callers="0" softkey.feature.forward="1"/>
<softkey softkey.2.action="$FDivert$$FSelect$$FSoftKey2$$FSelect$$FDialpad1$$FDialpad0$$FDialpad8$$FSoftKey1$$FArrowDown$$FSelect$$FArrowUp$$FSoftKey1$$FArrowLeft$$FSoftKey3$$FArrowLeft$$FArrowLeft$" softkey.2.enable="1" softkey.2.label="Fwd-108" softkey.2.use.idle="1" />
<softkey softkey.3.action="$FDivert$$FSelect$$FArrowDown$$FSelect$$FArrowDown$$FSoftKey1$$FArrowLeft$$FSoftKey3$$FArrowLeft$$FArrowLeft$" softkey.3.enable="1" softkey.3.label="Un-Fwd" softkey.3.use.idle="1" />
I don't do a lot of scripting, so be gentle.

Thank you for the response. I did try your example (which is where I got the code originally), but maybe I didn't understand how it was working.
1.) Exactly was is $FDivert$$FSelect$$FSoftKey2$ mimicing for button presses. That doesn't correlate to button presses for forwarding on this phone, but I may not be understanding what its really doing.
2.)Do I need to have my desired extension replace "8500" in <divert divert.1.contact="8500"/> to have it persistently forward to that extension? It looks like in the graphic, when Forward is activated its going to 8500.
3.) Does pressing the button again toggle on/off functionality of the forwarding?
4.) Will this work on a Polycom 321/331?
Thanks so much!
