Multiple extensions on one phone

I've got a client who has more employees than phones.


Is there a way to assign multiple extensions to one phone?


Thanks,


John

Hi John,


You can create additional extensions to a phone, then label them according to the user.  However, the Internal Directory will only list the main extension's user.


See example of this here:

if there are more extensions than phones I assume you are just needing voicemail for each employee? If that is the case you create users with assigned extensions and voicemail boxes. Then set up a cheap spa301 in a common area. Now each employee without a phone can check voicemail at the 301 by dialing the vm pilot, press * then follow prompts to check vm. Or you could do voicemail to email.
