Select Call (Outlook Contact App shows Call ) and pick the number you would like to dial, then left click the number or hit Enter. Your ShoreTel/Mitel Connect Client will show an active call that is ringing, and your assigned ShoreTel phone will show the active call (depending on your phone’s Auto off-hook settings, the phone’s speakerphone or headset will come on when the call is initiated).
