Admin Portal – Administrator access to the end-user portal

Home | Administrator Central | Administrator Guides | Admin Portal - Administrator access to the end-user portal

Introduction

Administrators access to a user’s Calling User Portal (My Phone Next) through the Calling Admin Portal. With this access, administrators can manage some of the features that are not available in the admin portal. For example, enabling or disabling DND and other rule-based features. This can be helpful when users are out of the office unexpectedly or when troubleshooting the user features.

This feature must be enabled for the administrator. This guide will go through the steps of enabling/disabling administrator permissions as well as the steps for accessing a user’s Calling User Portal (My Phone Next).


Enabling Administrator Permissions
