Move Extension from one IP Phone to Another Using Cisco CallManager Express

I'm having issues using Cisco's CallManager Express.  All I need to do is move one user's extension from an existing Cisco 7912 phone to an existing 7960 phone.  Should I do this in the CLI or can CallManager Express do it in a way that I'm missing?

Current extension 1703 is on Cisco 7912
Current extension 1722 is on Cisco 7960

I need to flip flop these so 1703 is on the 7960 and 1722 is on the 7912.  Thanks.

you can do it via the CLI.  you need to get the ephone-dn number (not the extension) and then change the button statement in the ephone config.

Here is an example:

ephone-dn 24
   number   1111
   label    My New Number - 1111

ephone 3
    button 1:24

In the example, it would set the first button on the phone to ephone-dn 24 (which has extension 1111) assigned to it.

Is there a way to do this in the web-based Call Manager Express?  There are going to be times were I need people to switch around extensions when I'm not here and I don't want them messing around in the CLI.  Thanks.
