Is their a 50 address limit displayed to the user login? We can search for the 200+ speed dials, but cannot browse to list any more than the first 50. Are we overlooking a NEXT button or something?

No, we just wanted to avoid displaying potentially 100000 entries on one web page. You need to narrow your search, then it will display those entries in chunks of the first 10/20/50 results.

 

Paging does not really help because the PBX then needs to keep the result set internally.

That makes logical sense if the speed dial numbers were important. In our case, the client has 300+ speed dials and growing.

 

We defined speed dials as follows

*41 (4 digit employee number is their cell phone) (The 4 digit number is randomly assigned by HR software)

*42 (same 4 digit number is there home phone)

 

hundreds of outbound calls are placed daily to these people..

 

The Search entry seems to be inconsistent

Searching for JOH shows the three Johnsons

 

but J does not show any of Johnsons..

 

nor does J*

 

It seems the search tool only uses the first name..

 

Did we miss something.

 

 

Thanks

It searched for the occurance of "j" anywhere in the text. Maybe you get too many results, and the real Johnsons are already too far down in the list.

 

J* does not work, there is no pattern matching here. Just case-insensitive text search...

Unfortunately this is not the case. Does the search only process the first and last name fields?

IF so, we may be forced to incude the assigned speed dial code in the first name field. If we were to do this, would the search results field be sorted numerically based? The first name field would be 4143543 4134234 424343. The problem here is the results would not show the assigned home and cell phone next to each other.

 

the real solution is the add a scrollable full result window or add a next page to the existing window.
