Your handset has multiple line keys which can be used as actual lines or speed-dial buttons with indicators. An internal speed-dial with indicator is called a BLF in the PBX world. Speed-dial keys can be internal or external numbers.
What is a BLF?
BLF or busy lamp fields show the status of other users phones (busy, ringing, available) connected to your phone system. Extra keys you are not using can be assigned to be BLF keys. You can assign a workmate’s extension to appear as a BLF on your phone – when their phone is in use / ringing you will be able to see this on your handset.
As the key is also a speed-dial, you may press the key to call your workmate.
