Configure the Dial by Name Primary Method on a Unified Messaging Dial Plan

Applies to: Exchange Server 2010

Topic Last Modified: 2011-03-19

When you create a dial plan, you can configure the primary and secondary dial by name methods. These dial by name methods are used by callers use to look up names when they want to locate and contact a user when they call into an Outlook Voice Access number or when they call into a UM auto attendant that's associated with the dial plan. Callers can use either touchtone inputs or voice inputs to locate a UM-enabled user.

None isn't an available option for the dial by name primary method. When None is selected for the dial by name secondary method, only the dial by name primary method will be available to callers.
