From 2009 to 2011 mirjam baumberger wrote a great blog, the "Fridays' Swyx Tip". Every Friday she posted a tip regarding the usage of SwyxWare and connected tools and devices. As the old forum is offline, this article series will be restored here again over the time. Please note that some information in this article series might not be valid anymore with current SwyxWare versions or downloads might not be available anymore.

Dear Swyx Users
Did you know that SwyxWare enables you to dial your everyday contacts through global abbreviated dialing?
Abbreviated dialing codes can be stored in the Global Phonebook and therefore made available for everyone. If you dial #45, for example, this input is not interpreted as a number: it is resolved using the Global Phonebook. The stored number will be dialed.
If you are authorized to change the Global Phonebook, you can also store global abbreviated dialing codes with the help of SwyxIt!. To do this, create a new entry in the Global Phonebook and enter the dialing code of your choice in the "Name" field.
Remember that the entry must begin with exactly one hash symbol. Two hash symbols are used for example for controlling other functions: e.g. ##10 starts Remote Inquiry, so cannot be a global abbreviated dialing code.
Have a good weekend and happy Swyxing...
