[FAQ] How can I display my phone Extension rather than the Username using LYNC?

Option 1:


UCS 5.0.2 or later changed the behaviour in displaying the registration name rather than the Extension Number.


UCS 5.0.1 or earlier:




UCS 5.0.2 or later:




In order to change this back to the prior behavior please use:


<nameURI reg.1.useTelUriAsLineLabel="1" />


Option 2


Changing the Line Label manually to a desired name.


LYNC usually utilizes the User Logon / SIP URI to populate the Line Label on the Phone.


The above result may not be desirable




Change via the Web Interface:




or Configuration file:


reg.1.label="Steffen Baier"
