Members of the Directory
The directory only contains individuals that have an Avaya phone and whose information has been put in the Avaya system. For this reason, certain names might not appear in directory search results.

- Scroll down to the third page of call appearances by pressing the

- Use the dial pad to search for the last name of the person for which you are searching. Enter a letter
by pressing the dial pad button that has the letters you want to add labeled across its top. Note that
you do not need to scroll through letters: you only need to dial out the user's name (e.g.,
to search for "Lincoln", you would press 5468656). As you input letters, the closest matches in the
directory listing will be displayed.
Searching a Full Name in the Directory
If you want to find someone by first and last last name, then dial the last name, then dial a 1 to insert a comma, and then dial the first name (e.g., to search for "Lincoln,Abe", dial 54686561223).
