  1. Activated device

The list of devices are activated for the extension. If you want the user to additionally use other devices, click Activate.

  • TLS: TLS is a security function. By default, our system will use UDP & TCP (TCP and UDP are the most commonly used connection protocols for data travel on the Internet). However, if your device supports TLS to enable ecommerce transaction security on the Web, which required encryption to protect customers’ personal data, as well as authentication and integrity guarantees to ensure a safe transaction, you can enable TLS function on Bizphone portal so that whenever you make/receive calls, TLS will encrypt them to secure the connection. The call will not be captured by anybody in system environment.
To sign in to your Desktop/Mobile App, please use the same ID of your account (your email address and your configured password).
  1. 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).
  • Do not disturb

    When this feature is enabled, user will not receive or forward any calls.
  1. Caller ID

  • User existing caller ID: choose one caller ID among the purchased DIDs (from subscriptions) and registered mobile number. The callerID is fixed.
  • Assign Caller Id: Admins can assign a list of caller ID to the user. User can only choose one number from the assigned caller ID list as his/her caller ID.
  • Randomize caller ID: CallerID is randomized every time you make a call.
  • Request new callerID: if you want to rebrand your own numbers, key in a number and save change. We'll be notified and support you.
