INTRODUCTION
1.1 Smart Control Overview
Smart Control is a call manager application with support for contact management, scheduling and call
logging. It also gives limited support for email and browsing.
1.1.1 Station Setup Services
You can control your station parameters using these services. You can set/reset DND (Do Not Disturb), Call
Forwarding, Vacant Station Message, etc, using the simple user interface provided.
1.1.2 Call Control Services
You can access all the basic and extended services of your Samsung DCS-VIP Key Telephone System
using Smart Control. You can make calls, answer call, release calls and manage multiple calls at your
desktop. You can also establish multiparty audio conference through Smart Control without having to
remember any PBX feature codes. Some special features like speed dialling and continuous dialling are
supported.
1.1.3 Directory Services
Smart Control allows you to maintain multiple phone books of your choice to keep track of your contacts.
You may also print all your contacts’ information in four different formats. Smart Control directories
provide Drag and Drop functionality for easy call control. You can import your existing database from your
current Personal Information Manager (PIM) application—ACT! 2.0 or ACT! 4.0 for Windows, PS2000 or
Microsoft OutLook—into Smart Control. The Directory Services feature also allows Smart Control to
identify the caller if the contact information is available in Smart Control or other applications using a
Dynamic Data Exchange (DDE) mechanism.
11
1.1.4 Scheduler Services
Smart Control allows you to schedule a telephone call or activation of some of the station setup options for
execution at some later point of time. A note that will show at the time of execution may be entered to
explain why this call or feature was scheduled. A pop-up window gives you the option to cancel any
scheduled item at the scheduled time of execution or to change the time of execution.
1.1.5 Call Log Services
Smart Control’s Call Log maintains a record of all incoming and outgoing calls from the keyset while the
application is active. Call log records contain a Notes field for recording information about a particular call
and a Keyword field to enable the logs to be searched. Smart Control allows you to print individual Call
Log records, selected Call Log records or an entire Call Log. This will allow you to archive hard copies of
the logs for later perusal.

DDE (DYNAMIC DATA EXCHANGE) SUPPORT IN
SMART CONTROL
Dynamic data exchange (DDE) is a form of communication (inter process) that uses shared memory to
exchange data between applications.
Applications can use DDE for one-time data transfers and for ongoing exchanges in which the applications
send updates to one another as new data becomes available.
"
Client and Server Interaction
DDE always takes place between a client application (the ‘client’) and a server application (the ‘server’).
The client initiates the exchange by establishing a conversation with the server so that transactions can be
sent to the server. (A transaction is a request for data or services.)
The server responds to these transactions by providing data or services to the client. A server can have many
clients at the same time, and a client can request data from multiple servers.
Also, an application can be both a client and a server. A client terminates a conversation when it no longer
needs a server’s data or services. For example, a graphics application might contain a bar graph that
represents a corporation’s half -yearly profits, and the data for the bar graph might be contained in a
spreadsheet application.
To obtain the latest profit figures, the graphics application (client) establishes a conversation with the
spreadsheet application (server). The graphics application then sends a transaction to the spreadsheet
application, requesting the latest profit figures.
11.1 Smart Control Application as DDE Client
Smart Control can act as a DDE client to start a conversation with Personal Information Manager (PIM)
applications such as Symantec ACT! 2.0, GoldMine for Windows, SuperOffice etc. These applications act
as DDE servers.
You can Enable DDE in Smart Control by selecting Options/Set Environment->DDE….
133
FIGURE 11-1
When DDE is enabled in Smart Control, then for any incoming call a command is sent to your selected PIM
application (which acts like a DDE server) to search for the caller’s contact record based on the incoming
callerID or DNIS (Dialled Number Identification Services).
You have the option to specify the search based on call type, such as Internal Call and/or External Call, as
well as on CallerID or DNIS. The dialogue box that appears when you select Set Environment →
DDE…from the Option menu is shown below.
FIGURE 11-2
Smart Control User Guide
134
In the DDE Program combo (dropdown list) box the following PIM applications are supported:
*
*
*
*
Symantec ACT! 2.0,
GoldMine for Windows,
SuperOffice4.0,
Maximizer for Windows.
For these applications you need only select the PIM application name, the application’s EXE file path and
the database file to be opened for finding the contact record. The DDE initialisation based on the Services
Name and Topic Name is handled by Smart Control.
11.1.1 Smart Control as DDE Client to Symantec ACT! 2.0
If you have enabled DDE and selected Symantec ACT! 2.0 as your PIM, you need to enter the path for the
ACTWIN2.EXE file. Choose your ACT file (*.DBF) containing the contact records. (If you are not sure
about the path of the EXE file, run the file by pressing the TEST button.)
When you click on OK on the Select the DDE Server dialogue box, DDE is initialised with ACT! as the
DDE server.
FIGURE 11-3
135
Guidelines for using Symantec ACT!:
1.
To view the caller’s record in ACT!, you must set your current screen in ACT! to “Contact
Screen One” (see help on contact screen in ACT! for further information). An example “Contact
Screen One” for ACT! is shown in Figure 11-3..
2.
Even though the caller’s contact record is found, ACT! does not pop up. It is better to have
ACT! maximized in the background.
3.
If you have entered a password for database access, you need to run ACT! prior to the
initialiation of DDE using Smart Control.
4.
Format of phone numbers in ACT!:
If your contact record’s number is nnnnnnn (same area), you need to have this in ACT! as nnnnnn-n for popup to occur.
If your contact record’s number is cc-aa-nnnnnnn (different country), you need to have this in
ACT! as cca-ann-nnnnn for popup to occur.
If your contact record’s number is nnnn (mostly internal) then you need to have this in ACT! as
nnn-n.
11.1.2 Smart Control as DDE client to GOLDMINE
If you have enabled DDE and selected GOLDMINE as your PIM, you need to enter the path for the
GOLDMINE file, GM4.EXE. Choose your GOLDMINE CONTACT file containing the contact records.
(If you are not sure about the path of the EXE file, run the file by pressing the TEST button.)
When you click OK on the Select the DDE Server dialogue box the DDE Server Information dialogue box
appears. This requires you to enter a username and password for GOLDMINE.
FIGURE 11-4
Smart Control User Guide
136
Enter your username and password, if any. When entered correctly, DDE is initialised.
Guidelines for using GOLDMINE:
If it is a local number nnnnnnn then GOLDMINE stores it in the format (aa)nnn-nnnn where aa
denotes area code. For numbers other then local area numbers, you need to enter them
continuously without any special character such as - or ( , etc., for contact popup.
For example:
If your contact’s phone number is aa-nnnnnnn, where aa is the area code, you need to enter it as
aannnnnnn in GOLDMINE.
Note:
Make sure to enter the correct GOLDMINE EXE file as the username and password are passed
along with it. If you enter any other EXE file there is a chance of the program crashing.
11.1.3 Smart Control as DDE Client to SuperOffice
If you have enabled DDE and selected SuperOffice4.0 as your PIM, you need to enter the path for the
SUPEROFFICE file, SUPEROF4.EXE. (If you are not sure about the path of the file, run it by pressing the
TEST button.) Even if you have not logged on to SuperOffice it still shows the contact pop up.
Guidelines for using SuperOffice4.0:
1.
If your contact’s local area is the same as yours, you need to enter only the number.
2.
SuperOffice doesn’t show a popup for numbers having more than eight digits. If you have
entered the number in the form aannnnnnn, where aa indicates the area code, then you cannot
view the popup.
Note for users in Norway:
Norwegian users must always enter the area code (aa) before the phone number. For example,
if the number is nnnnnn then they need to enter it as aannnnnn.
137
11.1.4 Smart Control as DDE Client to Maximizer for Windows
If you have enabled DDE and selected Maximizer for Windows as your PIM, you need to enter the path of
the Maximizer EXE file, MAXWIN.EXE. (If you are not sure about the path of the file, run it by pressing
the TEST button.)
When you click OK on the Select the DDE Server dialogue box, DDE is initialised with Maximizer as the
DDE server.
Guidelines for using Maximizer for Windows:
If you have entered a username and password to access the database in Maximizer, then Maximizer
must be running prior to initialisation of DDE.
Note: Maximizer only points to the contact’s record. The contact's record is not popped up. It is
better to keep the Maximizer application maximized in the background.
11.2 Note for All PIMs (Symantec ACT!, GoldMine, SuperOffice,
Maximizer)
If you get the following error when you select any of the above PIMs, it means that DDE has not been
initialised.
FIGURE 11-5
The solution is to run the EXE file for the application you have selected. Go to Options/Set Environment →
DDE… and enter the path of the program file and database file correctly. Then click OK on the dialogue
box to reinitialise DDE.
Remember, if you simply click OK on the error message box (above), you cannot see a contact popup for
incoming calls as DDE is not initialised.
Note: If you close Smart Control with DDE enabled, then when you start Smart Control again,
DDE is initialised automatically.

11.3 General DDE Support
Smart Control can work with other applications acting as DDE servers. Select the Other option in the DDE
Program combo box (Figure 11-2) if you want to select an application other than that already selected.
The following steps explain how to use this feature.
1. Select the Other option in the DDE Program combo (dropdown list) box on the Select the DDE Server
dialogue box.
2. A help dialogue box appears (shown below) giving instructions you should follow.
FIGURE 11-6
3. Run your selected DDE application (server) EXE file.
4. Open the file of contacts (if any) in your DDE application (server).
5. Enter your selected DDE application’s Services Name and Topic Name, and the command which
replaces SN@TN@CMD in the Command edit box. Replace the phone digits in the command with
“CLID”. Figure 11-7 shows how the dialogue box would appear when Microsoft Access is selected as
the other DDE application (server).
139
FIGURE 11-7
Here MSACCESS@System@[OpenForm FORMNAME,,,FORMFIELD=“CLID”] is entered instead of
SN@TN@CMD.
Where,
SN-is Services Name(for Access it is MSACCESS).
TN- is Topic Name(for Access it is System).
CMD- is command(for Access it is [OpenForm FORMNAME,,,FORMFIELD=“CLID”] ).
FORMNAME-The name of the form in Access.
FORMFIELD-The name of the field in the form that contains the phone digits.
In the example shown above:
MSACCESS@System@[OpenForm LOG,,,telNo=“CLID”]
LOG is the form name and telNo is the field in this form containing the phone digits.
Note: “CLID” should be entered instead of the phone digits in the DDE command.
Smart Control User Guide
140
Click the Format button and enter the different phone number formats (based on the number of phone
digits) in the Phone Number Formats dialogue box.
FIGURE 11-8
The dialogue box shown above displays the default formats for the various sizes of phone numbers.
The formats you enter should match the formats in your selected DDE application (server). This is
necessary as different PIMs store the phone numbers in different formats depending upon the number of
digits in the phone number. For example, In Symantec ACT! 2.0 the number is stored in xxx-xxx-xxxxxx
format. The number 2004 is thus stored as 200-4.
Smart Control needs to know in what format the phone digits are stored in the selected PIM depending upon
the number of digits. Smart Control formats the number according to the format entered above and sends it
to the PIM for a search.
Click OK on the Select the DDE Server dialogue box. If the following error message box appears, check if
your selected DDE application is running.
141
FIGURE 11-9
The error signifies that DDE is not initialised with your selected DDE application (server).
11.4 Smart Control as DDE Server
Smart Control as DDE server supports only the “SmartControl” Services Name and “Telephony” Topic
Name. Any client PIM can place a call using Smart Control. The client application needs to send the
command as “MakeCall XYZ” after starting the conversation using “SmartControl” as the Services Name
and “Telephony” as the Topic Name.
For example
A user of SuperOffice PIM can place a call using Smart Control. The following command needs to be
entered in the “Prefix” field of the Dial dialogue box in SuperOffice:
DDE;SmartControl;Telephony;MakeCall XYZ
where XYZ is the number that is to be dialled.

11.5 Pop Up with Microsoft Outlook Contacts
# Call Notification Enhancement
Smart Control V3.1 offers it’s own contact database and pops up a relevant page depending on how you
set up call notification options. To pop up other personal information managers, you had to set up DDE.
Smart Control V3.12 supports Microsoft Outlook screen pop in the same way as its own database. To
use this feature you have to configure Options Menu / Call Notification / Database option.
# How Do You Configure Database Options?
If you set the Options Menu / Call Notification / General / Display Call Details options, the Smart
Control searches for some databases to get a call party’s record.
To make the Outlook Contact popped, mark the check box titled “Search Outlook Contacts”. Then Smart
Control will pop up a relevant page from a Outlook Contact Database if a match is made between the
call party’s phone number and the telephone field in the database record.
