Macros

Macros are used to automate some type of calls. The basic use case is to assign a phone number to a keyboard shortcut. To do so, a new macro have to be created in the configuration dialog "accessibility" section. It can then be assigned to a shortcut either in the dialog itself or in the dedicated shortcut dialog. It is also possible add a macro to the toolbar using the dedicated dialog.

Macros also support the "\n" escape sequence to emulate the effect of the "Enter" keyboard key and the "Pick up" button. The time between each keystroke is also configurable to match some PXB dial plan configuration (such as phone extensions or audio menu).
