Leading Zeros in Names

Because the Administration Console sorts names alphabetically, numeric values may sort differently than you expect. For example, a group called I C U Nurse Bed 10 sorts before a group called I C U Nurse Bed 2.

To take advantage of numeric values and also have names sort as users expect, add leading zeros to the numbers so they have the same number of digits. For example, a group called I C U Nurse Bed 02 sorts before a group called I C U Nurse Bed 10.

Users do not have to pronounce these leading zeros to make a call; in fact, because leading zeros are ignored in common number pronunciations, users are not permitted to pronounce them. Consequently, a user sends a message to the I C U Nurse Bed 02 group by saying "Send a message to Eye See You Nurse Bed Two".
