Add & Edit User Extensions

Extension dialing is available on Enterprise plans.

User extensions not only allow your internal team a quick way to dial out to each other but can also be used as a quick way to route callers to your team via the dial by extension directory on your Main Line, Department, or Call Center. 

Before adding user extensions, make sure you note:

  • Extensions are configured on a Company level (applies to all Offices)
  • Extensions only work between team members within the same Company
  • Extensions can be 4 or 5 digits long, but 5 is the default (contact support to change)

You can add extensions to new and existing team members as well as edit a previously assigned extension. Let's take a closer look at the steps required for each option.
