Configuring Yealink Phones
To set an existing handset to an extension, find the MAC address of the handset you’re configuring, then click Edit.

Set the Phone Name, for example ‘Bob’ and, if it’s not already selected, choose the phone’s model.
If you’d like the handset to subscribe to any of your Address Books, select the appropriate entry in the Address Book field. To learn more about setting up address books, please see Portal Guide – Address Book
Finally, select the Extension that this phone should connect to from the Extensions field. If this phone should connect to more than one extension, use the +Add Extension button to attach additional extensions.

External Numbers: Sets up a speed dial key for a number found in Hosted PBX > External Numbers
Timeswitch Positions: Use a key to quickly switch between timeswitch favourites (eg. Lunch timeswitch override). For more information see Time Switch Setup guide
Call Parking: Configure a key to park a caller and additional keys to monitor individual parking lots, enabling parked caller retrieval. For more information see Call Parking Guide
Custom Values: This allows you to setup a custom key on your handset of either BLF (same functionality as PBX Extensions), Speed Dial (same functionality as external numbers), Line (additional line keys) or Call Park (same functionality as call parking) but manually specifying the target number or extension.
While most keys will synchronise automatically, you can force a resync by clicking the Save & Sync to Phone button.
Applying the Settings to Your Phone
Once the phone has received its initial configuration, any changes made from the web interface will automatically be delivered to the phone.
