Workdays can get pretty overwhelming at times, so if there is any help we can get to ease some of the stress that comes with a 40 plus hour work week, we’ll take it!

Help can come from anywhere around the office, whether it’s from a coworker, a certain computer program, or even something as simple as a stack of sticky notes. But, what if I told you that you may have some shortcuts laying around your desk that you are overlooking?

In fact, there may be one shortcut inside your phone that can speed up the dialing process. It may seem small, but if your job requires you to make numerous outcalls, then you might want to want to take advantage.

grandstream-gxp1760The phone feature that I am talking about is called Predictive Dialing, and while this may be quite common for most IP desk phones, you can be sure that the Grandstream GXP1760 is equipped with this feature.

So, how does Predictive Dialing work? Its simple. It works on its own! There is nothing you have to do to turn it on, but if you tend to dial numbers off your computer screen, or a notepad, then you may be missing it!

When you begin to dial a number, the phone will scan your phonebook and call history and display a list of phone numbers that match what you have already dialed. If you notice the number you are trying to dial pop up, then you can use the directional pad on the front of the phone to highlight the number and call.

Obviously, the more numbers you enter into the phone, the more condensed the list will become. This makes it easier to return calls from earlier in the day, to contact clients that are in your phonebook and saves you time!

If your office is just beginning to switch to VoIP, or if you are looking to upgrade your current VoIP Phones, then this phone should be on your list! Because when your phone works with you, and not against you, everybody wins!

Do you use Predictive Dialing? What are some other phone features you use to save time? We want to know! Comment below

If you are looking for an upgrade to your average desk phone at work, then look no further than the Grandstream GXV3275. This phone is basically an android tablet with a handset, and it’s awesome.

gxv3275One of the more popular features on this phone is the ability to use Widgets. Apply these widgets to your home screen and transform your phone into so much more. Having a stand alone calendar, displaying the weather, or even a newsfeed right on your desk phone will make you the talk of the office, for sure.

And while the 7-inch capacitive touch screen is plenty big for a desk phone, you will eventually run out of room to feed your Widget addition, but don’t fret! There is a way to resize your widgets so that you can fit even more!

The process for resizing is simple. All it takes is holding your finger on the Widget for about two seconds. Once held, you then remove your finger from the screen and a blue frame will appear around the selected widget.

From here you can touch and drag the blue frame to adjust your Widget to the perfect size! It’s really that simple. This will allow you to be able to size and arrange your widgets to either fit more on your screen or if anything else, place them exactly where you want them.

Now that you know how to customize your GXV3275, let us know what you think is the best Widget to have on your home screen!

How Do I Reboot Grandstream GXP2130?

Q: Is there a way to reboot Grandstream GXP2130 without physically unplugging them? When we have a power outage, some of the phones don’t reconnect properly. The incoming and outgoing calls can no longer work. The phones need to be rebooted for the entire system to work.

A: You would have to reboot the switch then (hard reboot). On the phone display press the right arrow on the navigation pad where on the LCD display you will see the two dots “..” Then there should be an option to “Reboot”.
