How to Create a Company Directory


Company Directory allows you to list the available 3 or 4 digit extensions to your callers. Callers can then dial the desired extension and be connected directly to that team member or department. To set up a Company Directory, please follow the steps below:

 

Before adding the Company Directory, be sure the following is completed:

When testing these changes, you must dial your Talkroute Phone Number from a phone number that is NOT listed as a Forwarding Phone Number. If you attempt to call your Talkroute Phone Number from a Forwarding Phone Number, the call will disconnect or outbound dialing will be initiated (if enabled).
