We have a Cisco 6941 in reception for guests to use.

The question that reception are asked many time a day is, of course, "What do I dial for an outside line..."

Is it possible to display on the phone a custom message. ""Please dial o for an outside line" - for example ?

We are running CCM 7.1(3).

No, but you can configure it in such a way that if the handset is picked up, it will automatically connect to a Call Handler in Unity with a recording stating so, and accept input to be redirected as needed. As for the text message, its a no go.

Well you actually can.  It may not be elegant but you could change the label on the line on the phone.  Normally if you have say extension 1000 on the phone it will display 1000 on the line button.  But you can change it with the text line label field on the DN.  I don't know how many characters you will get, but you might be able to shorten it to Dial 9 for outside or something short like that.

Or better yet get you a nice label maker and print out a nice label that says dial 9 to get out.

Hey thats a great a idea (the line label), I totally focused on the message at the bottom of the screen that says "Your current options" on the 79xx series, that you can only modify on CME systems. But the line label will do the trick.
