Custom Calling Features (CCF): Speed Calling, Long List (SCL)

This is a list of two-digit addresses programmed by the list controller. (The list controller may be any designated station within the group of Long List users). The Long List is based on the most frequently called numbers suggested for inclusion on the list (usually long distance or 9 + 7-digit local numbers). The list can include up to 30 numbers. One person in the department is the "controller" of the list, programming all numbers and changes.

Notes

  • For a local number be sure to store the "9" in your list. FOR EXAMPLE: 9 4982222.

  • For a long distance number use an asterisk "*" to store a pause for the tones after the 8 and after the authorization code. FOR EXAMPLE: 8 * 111111 * 8175552323.

  • Although you can store your long distance authorization code in your Long List with the long distance number, it is not recommended since anyone knowing the speed number may use your telephone to charge calls to your account. Telephone Services recommends using the CHAIN DIAL method. (See CHAIN DIALING.)
