How to Set Up Your Avaya 1400 Series Business Phone – Video Tutorial


Do you know what all the buttons on your Avaya 1400 Series phone do? Learn how to make them work for you.

You've just bought a new Avaya phone system to improve productivity. But employees are looking at the phones and don't quite know what to do with all of the buttons.

We've created a short video to show you how to use three of the most popular features of the Avaya 1400 phones:

  • Abbreviated dialing
  • User BLF
  • Send All Calls

Each of these functions will help everyone save time.

Button, Button, Who's Got the Button?

Programming your business phone for maximum ease-of-use isn't difficult. There ARE a lot of buttons to press though. In the video below, we'll walk you through how to program these three features and share a few tips and tricks for how to use each. 

Abbreviated dialing lets you call frequently-dialed numbers that aren't in the system – your favorite take-out place to quickly call as you leave work or suppliers and contractors you talk to frequently.

User BLF is another speed-dial feature, but for someone in the system. Set up one-touch dialing to talk to your boss, direct reports, and anyone else. BLF stands for “Busy Lamp Field.” That's the light on a VoIP phone that will tell you if that extension is available or not.

Send all calls is a “do not disturb” function that can forward incoming calls as well as a few other features.
