Contact directory -- remove myself

Hi all,

This is a generic contact directory question.

Phone happily loads 000000000000-directory.xml file and displays contacts.

But There is really no point to include phone's own extension in a contact list. Is it possible to instruct the phone NOT to display its own extension in a contact list? I can, of course, create separate file for each phone, but, hopefully, there is an easier way.

 

I use is VVX500 (5.9.6.2327) at the moment, but don't think it is relevant.

 

Thanks,

Rudolf

Hello @Rudolf ,

Welcome back to the Poly community.

Some or a couple of your old post(s) or reply(s) to them => here <= and  => here <= are still open/pending as you have not marked these as "Accept as a solution" or at least provide some form of feedback or answer.

If they are in this state nobody finding them via a community search will know if an answer or advice provided was useful and has maybe helped you.

Could you therefore kindly go over them and mark or answer as appropriate?

If they are marked as "Accept as a solution" other users can find these easier and it helps them to utilize the community more efficiently. Please do not simply mark them without any type of feedback.

 

For your new question, I can only recommend the FAQ and/or Admin guide matching your software. 

 

As a quick reply no you cannot. A phone could contain multiple lines and the phone book would not know which one is the one to exclude.

 

In regards to individual XML files:
