Is there a Variable for the name

Is there a variable that I can use to configure phones to display the name? I have two places where I want to set it up.

 

First of all, when I am logged in, the phone shows my number instead of the name. Can I have name or both?

 

Second, when I page (using Paging feature), it shows either name that I had to manually enter, or it shows the MAC address of my phone.

 

Is there a variable for the name that I can use in my config file?

 

Thank you.

Re: Is there a Variable for the name

Hello KPABA,

The Administrator guide matching your software release should be consulted in order to get these individual parameters.

 

Or in addition simply changing a parameter via the web interface and then exporting the configuration will show these as well.

 

PTT Name:

 

ptt.displayName="PTT"

Group Paging Name:

 

ptt.pageMode.displayName="Paging"

 Line Label Name:

 

reg.1.label="Label"

Re: Is there a Variable for the name

Is there any way to receive straight answer?

 

The variables that could be used are: PHONE_MODEL, PHONE_PART_NUMBER, and PHONE_MAC_ADDRESS. My question is: Is there variable for the user name or full name of the user that is logged in?

 

I do not want display name to be PPT, Paging, or something like this.  I know how to do this. I want to know if it is possible to have a name of the user that is logged in to the phone. I hope that there is a variable for the user name.

Hello KPABA,

 

the answer is no after you specified what you are exactly after.

 

I can only supply you with the correct and supported parameters.
