  4. Scroll down. Below your list of extensions, click the link for Callers are allowed to dial by extension only after selecting “Dial by Extension” menu option.
    • Select at any time to allow callers to dial by extension.
      • Important: Enabling this feature will mean that callers will not be able to navigate through several menus at once by entering multiple keys.
