Vine needs minimum configuration in order to enable its telephony capabilities. The needed settings are combined on the Phone tab in the Vine Settings dialog.
Vine uses the Default Country and Area codes to build phone numbers to be dialed from those stored in your database.
Select Line. Choose a TAPI phone (or the name of its driver) from this list In lists objects are represented by small icons and object names. Icons help you to recognize object types. Press a keyboard character (a letter or a digit) to jump to the list item that starts from this character. The first matching item will be chosen, counting from the top of the list..
Line out prefix. This prefix is added to the number in Vine. This permits the switchboard to differentiate inter-office calls from those directed out of the office. Phone numbers which have less than 5 digits or include special symbols (‘*’,’#’) are considered to be internal and this prefix is not added to such numbers.
International call prefix. If the phone number starts with the “+” prefix and does not include the default country code, Vine replaces "+" with the international call prefix.
