  1. Activated device

By default, only IP Phone is activated. If you want the user to use bizphone app on mobile or desktop, click Activate.

**Note: The username and password of each device is of the SIP credentials. To sign in to your Desktop/Mobile App please use the same ID of your account (your email address (username) and your configured password).

Incoming call device

If an extension is not mapped to a SIP gateway, it can receive incoming calls through IP phone, Mobile app and Desktop app, or even forward the calls to other destinations. If it is mapped to a SIP gateway, all incoming calls will be directed to the sip account. Find out more on SIP gateway.

  • Ring devices

    • IP phone
    • Desktop app
    • Mobile app
The devices should be activated to receive incoming calls.
  • Call forwarding

    • Incoming calls can be forwarded to phone numbers or extensions.
    • When call forwarding is enabled, you will not receive calls on any devices although they are activated.
    • VIP list: numbers in this list will not be forwarded; they ring the extension directly.
      • Example use case: a CEO (ext 100) does not want to receive any calls except from his Assistants (101 and 102) and the counterparts (e.g. 65xx01, 65xx02, ..., 65xx10).
      • Settings:
        • Turn on Call forwarding
        • Turn on To extensions: add the extensions of 2 assistants (101, 102) to forward all the calls to them.
        • Turn on VIP list: add the extension keys of 2 assistants (101,102) and phone numbers of the counterparts (65xx01, 65xx02, ..., 65xx10).
