Fridays' Swyx Tip #16: Ring Tones

Tom Wellige



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.

Dear Swyx Users


Did you know that you can configure ringtones depending on the number of the caller? And that you can also select different ringtones depending on the department or extension called ?


This is how you define different ringing sounds within your SwyxIt! soft phone client:

  1. Go to the menu bar and click on "Settings | User Settings…".

  2. Select the "Ringing" tab.


  3. On this tab you will find all numbers or number masks with the ringing sounds assigned to them. You can change or delete the existing entries or add new entries.

  4. Click on "Add..." to define a special ringing sound.

  5. Define the name and number of the caller.

  6. Alternatively you can enter one of your extensions or MSNs here. In this case, the ringing sound is selected if this extension is called.

  7. You can use the placeholders "*" for more than one character, "?" for exactly one character.


Any questions?



Have a good weekend and happy Swyxing...
