Extensions

One of the important stages of the organization of your corporate telephony is to set up the extensions in the telephone network. For calls between employees through the TeamWox Communicator this setting is not required. However, for the automatic routing of external calls to users, extension numbers should be assigned to them. By calling the corporate number and entering the extension number, the caller will be connected with a necessary party.

Extensions are configured on the this tab. The tab shows the list of all active TeamWox users.

The list contains the following information about the caller:

Extension Number

On this block, you can specify the extension number to be used for external calls to this user. By dialing this number in addition to the phone number given by the provider, the caller is automatically connected to the user.

The extension number can be dialed at any time of the call, including during the voice message of the digital receptionist. In connection with this feature, the first digits of extension numbers may not coincide with digital commands that are configured for the digital receptionist. For example, the extension numbers may begin with 1 (100, 1017, etc.), and for the digital receptionist control you can assign all the remaining numbers and symbols except 1.
