Directory (VFOneNet)

Directory (VFOneNet)

This section describes how to configure a directory.


The directory supports two search methods, by name and by phone number.

  • Search by name

    You can search for a contact by first name, last name, initials or abbreviations, or full name.

    For example, if a contact's name is Mary Wong, you can enter Mary, Wong, MW, or Mary Wong for a search.

  • Search by phone number

    You can search for a contact by fixed-line, mobile, or other numbers.


In the directory of HUAWEI IP Phone 7920/7960, a contact's profile picture displayed on the phone screen is the profile picture that the contact has customized on the soft client. However, if a contact does not customize his/her profile file but uses a profile picture provided by the soft client system, HUAWEI IP Phone 7920/7960 displays the phone's default profile picture for that contact on the phone screen, but not the one provided by the soft client system.

Configuration Methods

You can configure a directory using three different methods, as listed in Table1 Configuration methods.
