Store frequently dialed numbers in the cloud by adding names and phone numbers to a Common Phone List. Administrators can upload a Common Phone List by uploading a .csv file. Common Phone Lists are available on the Group level to deploy to a group of Users or the User level to deploy to a specific User.

NOTE: Not all phones are capable of retrieving a Common Phone List.

Preparing the CSV File

Make sure the .csv file is formatted correctly before uploading. A maximum of 500 contacts can be uploaded at once, with a limit of 10,000 contacts total.

NOTE: A single column of the .csv file can hold a maximum of 50 characters.
