Select a phone number or SIP address and press the pre-defined hotkey in order to initiate a Lync call, virtually from any application, using CETIS Dialer for Lync.
Procedure to initiate a Lync call
The User selects a phone number or SIP address on the screen. The selected phone number can be present in any application like Word, Excel etc. Next, the User presses the F8 key, and a small Call box will appear showing the detected phone number. Finally, the User clicks the Call button or presses the ENTER key to initiate the Lync call.
The User can configure whether a Call box should appear or not, in order to check the detected number, before initiating the call. Besides, the User can also configure to use another hotkey (function key or key combination) aside from F8.
Detecting phone numbers and SIP addresses
CETIS Dialer For Lync detects and extracts the phone numbers or SIP addresses even if the User has selected some other adjacent text. Virtually all standard number formats of foreign countries can be understood, and converted to the international format (e.g. +41 62 834 81 00). In addition, CETIS dialer displays the destination country, and enables the User to override it.
Many settings can be configured, namely:
- Default country
- Direct or indirect calling
- User interface language
- Maximum length of internal phone numbers
- Preserving Clipboard content (Enterprise Edition only)
- Automatic start after logon
