  • Patent number: 10715666
    Abstract: While using a communication system in which groups of destinations on a network are managed, and any one of the groups can be specified as a destination, if a group needs to be changed, added, or deleted, updating the system on the network is required, which increases load of maintenance. To address such a problem, an operation input receiving unit of a terminal receives selection of a group including destination information that represents destination candidates of communication. A destination management unit of the terminal determines a destination among the destination candidates represented by the destination information included in the selected group. A sending and receiving unit of the terminal makes a request for starting communication with the determined destination, to a management system.
