Phonebook (for 2N® IP Verso and 2N® IP Vario)

This tab helps you configure a structured user list to be displayed. Create any count of groups and add any count of phonebook users to groups. No user can be assigned more times to a group, but one user can be added to multiple groups at the same time.

The created folders and users are displayed to the left. Click  to add a folder. Click to remove a directory including users and groups. Click   to rename a group. Click to move a user from the main tree to a folder.

The users assigned to the selected group are displayed to the right. Click to add a user to the group; yet the user remains in the phonebook main tree. Click to remove a user. 

The groups and users are displayed as added to the phonebook. Click to assign a priority. The group/user with the last-assigned priority is always displayed on the top of the list. Groups are superior to users in the list. 

Caution

  • Remember to save the phonebook changes.

 

Name Tags (for 2N® IP Vario only)

This tab helps you set the users to be displayed in the Name Tags mode. Select up to 4 users from the phonebook and assign them to the buttons on the display sides. If you do not assign any user, the Name Tags mode will be inactive. In the Name Tags mode, the user names are displayed with guidelines and arrows pointing to the right button on the display sides.

 

If you do not like the default graphic appearance of the name tags, upload a background of your own to the intercom. Make sure that the image resolution is 320 x 208 pixels. Upload your name tags to the intercom to replace the original name tags. The original user assignments, however, remain the same.
