When checked, the From and Phone fields will be cleared if a new caller is entered in the Caller field.

 


Auto Completion

When checked, PhonePad automatically fills in the caller's organization and phone number.

 


Load Caller Details

When checked, the phone message form loads callers the Caller drop-down selection list that allows you to select callers.  You would normally leave this option checked if you want to be able to select callers.

 


Load From Details

When checked, the phone message form loads a list of organizations from the Address Book.  This can save time by allowing you to select a caller's organization.  You may want to disable this option to improve performance if you have a very large Address Book.

 


Sort Caller List

When checked, the caller selection list will be alphabetically sorted.  With very large Address Books there can be a performance hit so if you find the phone message form takes a long time to display then you may want to disable this option.  Although this option can make it easier to find names the incremental search feature will quickly filter out the other entries.

 


Sort From List

This has similar functionality to the Sort Caller List setting.
