alias name of the current address book entry.

Use this input field to specify the alias name of the current address book entry. This alias name is displayed in the header range of the "Quick Access" menu, above the IP address.

You may use all alphanumerical characters of the English keyboard layout for this alias name except these special characters: < > | \ / : * ?.

Because this field is mandatory, at least one valid character must be entered.

If you leave this field empty or use one or more invalid characters, a message will pop up pointing this out.

Before you can continue, this field must have a valid entry.
