CV Phone Quick Guide

See the Cisco IP Phone User Guide for your phone model to learn about using additional features such as Making Conference Calls and Speed Dialing. To access additional phone features via the web, log into the Cisco User Options web portal, using your NRAO Windows AD login username and password. The Cisco User Options site allows you to create a Personal Directory which interfaces with the NRAO Directory giving you easy access to your NRAO contacts. Your Personal Directory includes your Personal Address Book, speed dial numbers, and forwarding options.

Returning a Missed Call

Press phones_CVdirectories.jpg, then use the arrow button to highlight the "Missed Calls" directory and press "Select." Telephone numbers are saved without the preceding "9" required to dial out and "1" to dial long distance within the United States. Therefore, if the missed call is external to NRAO, press "Edit Dial" to append the necessary digits to the saved phone number. Press "9", and if needed enter "1" as well. Then press "Dial" to complete the call.

Forwarding Calls

You can use CFwdALL (Call Forward All) to redirect incoming calls from your phone to another number.

To set up call forwarding on your primary line: Select your line extension from the buttons to the right of the display, then press "CFwdALL" and enter a target phone number; include a "9" if an external number. The CFwdALL icon phones_phoneIcon.jpg phones_forwardArrow.jpg will display. Press "CFwdALL" to cancel call forwarding. (Example pending).

To set up or cancel call forwarding remotely (or for a non-primary line): Log into the Cisco User Options web portal. Click "User Option - Device", then select the phone. Under "Device Information - Name", click "Line Settings", select the Line, then select "Forward all calls to" (deselect to cancel). Select "Voice Mail" or "This Number" (enter a target phone number; include a "9" if an external number), and click "Save".
