    Lightbulb speed dial for google voice extension?

    Hi everyone, I'm new here so if this question belongs somewhere else, please feel free to move the thread elsewhere.I am a sales professional, and I use the google voice extension pretty heavily each day for the click to dial feature. If you don't know this extension, it allows you to iookup a contact name from your google contacts (or input any arbitrary phone number), then choose which of your endpoint phones you want the call to connect to, such as your desk phone. Google then places a call to your phone, and upon you answering, google then rings the remote party. So as a headset user, I can pretty much dial all my clients without ever touching the phone itself, just by answering the inbound google call by pressing the button on my headset.Anyway, there are a few numbers that I call frequently each day such as important clients of internal resources within my company. I would love the ability to hard code their dialing information to chrome extension button. This way a could call my admin with single click. I envision this working a few different ways.1. The user could add a separate extension button for each frequent contact 2. the extension has a preset number of buttons that can be assigned to the contacts you wish3. the extension tracks the contacts you dial and automatically populates the buttons with the top five you dial the most4. The extension just gives a drop down containing the items from option 2 or 3.One last thought is that google voice chrome extension also provides menu integration so you can click any phone number within a web page and it will popup some dialing options. Perhaps this ability could be leveraged to make this work? Perhaps a poorman version of this extension would simply create a locally stored page that includes the people I want to call. I could bookmark that page contact page on my bookmark bar? Then I could click the bookmark and then click the contact from that list? This would be a 2 click solution which is still far better than having to do a text lookup each time I want to dial. I'm not a developer, so I wouldn't tackle this on my own, but I figured one of you smart people might want to investigate these features? Personally I think this is a homerun.Regard,Born2Golf

    WOW, why doesn't this forum keep the text formatting? my post above make me look like a run-on idiot. I have even tried to go back in to put the paragraphs back the way I wanted them. Sorry about this...
