Manage DID and toll-free number ranges


Prerequisites

  • Telephony > Plug-in All permissions

After you purchase numbers from your carrier service, you use the DID Ranges feature to make those numbers available in your organization. This feature allows you to set up, edit, and delete DID and toll-free numbers. The main display consists of a table that allows you to view all of your numbers. To help you organize your numbers, can adjust the view by choosing which columns appear in the table.

You can then assign numbers to a person, a phone, or a call flow

Set up number ranges

Notes:
  • Each number in the range must be a valid number with a valid country code and area code.
