Question about HP Office Equipment & Supplies
I fax a menu to the same 75 numbers every day. I understand how to put the numbers into speed dial but can I "group" them to only touch one number to send them? I don't have the time to speed dial every number.
Hi Suzeo. Many HP fax machines have the function you are requesting. It is called the broadcast fax feature. Look in your owner manual for this feature. If I knew which model you have I would have researched it for you. IF by chance, your machine does not have this feature, it would be money well spent to replace your current machine with one that does. Depending on how many pages the daily fax is, I am estimating that you are spending an hour or more each day on this task. J.

Yes you can create group for speed dials, I am giving you step by step instructions herein, please note that the instructions are as general since you didn't mention the Model Name of your fax machine, but I do hope that this will be the same with yours.
The following instructions are the steps on how to set up "group speed dial" for hp fax machines;
Please follow the instructions very carefully and slowly, otherwise you might make mistakes.
If you have problem with these instructions, please let me know with the model number/name or series of your hp fax machine.

Groups allow you to send the same fax message to multiple numbers (broadcasting). You can store the Groups on your One-Touch keys or SpeedDial locations and then broadcast by pressing a One-Touch key and Fax Start or by pressing Search/Speed Dial, the three digit location and FaxStart. First, you will need to store each fax number you wish to includein your Group as either a One-Touch or Speed Dial number. Then, you can combine these numbers into a group. Finally, you can have up to six Groups, or you can assign up to 131 numbers to one large Group. Each Group uses one One-Touch key or Speed Dial location. To set up a Group, please follow these steps:
1. Press Menu, 2 (Fax), 3 (Set Auto Dial), 3 (Setup Groups).
2. Press the One-Touch key on which you wish to store the Group or pressSearch/Speed Dial followed by the three-digit Speed Dial location where you wish to store the Group. The LCD will read SETUP GROUP:G0 ENTER & SET.
