VVX EFK (Select line Button as input)


VVX EFK (Select line Button as input)

I'm working on an EFK function that will do the following:


Condition: On-Hook Dialing

EFK Button Label: Page

Action: Press 'Page'.  Select a Line from the main Lines screen.  Take selected line, Ie: User Pressed 'Bob', who has a destination of 101.  Prepend a *... Send Invite to *101 (Backend PBX will then proceed to page extension 101)


Here's what I have found so far:



This will prompt the user to select a line key for a *transfer*.... But I want to be able to while On-Hook, select a line key and dial it directly, without needing a transfer.  I also want to prepend to the dialed destination.


How might this be accomplished?

Hello @markm,


welcome back to the Polycom Community.


Both the Admin Guide matching your yet unknown Software Version and the EFK FAQ here:


Nov 25, 2011 Question: How can I change the functionality of a softkey button / use EFK?

Resolution: Please check => here <=


contain sufficient information on how to build EFK's and the restrictions around this.


Selecting a Line as a variable within an EFK is not possible to my knowledge.


If you would need such feature please raise a feature request:
