Making bulk changes to remote DID phone numbers for your SIP trunk service

You can update more than one remote DID phone number at one time—including adding descriptions, so you can remember them more easily. If you need to modify large blocks of numbers, you can bulk upload your changes and save time.

To make bulk changes to DID numbers:

  1. Click the Inventory tab, then click the Inventory Services subtab. 

Control Center displays a list of all services assigned to the accounts under your enterprise ID. If you have more than ten services, you can view the rest of your services by clicking one of the blue linked Show numbers at the top of the list or you can click the blue down arrow at the bottom of the list to add ten services at a time to the view.

  1. Search for the service with the DID phone numbers you want to change in one of these ways:

    • Sort your services using the Sort by… list (e.g., Service Type). You can toggle between descending and ascending order using the arrow to the right of the Sort by… list.

    • Filter your services by selecting an option from the View All (Default) list.

    • Search for the service (by service type, account, etc.) using the Search by… field and search box. (To search using multiple search criteria, click Advanced Search, then fill in your search criteria and click Apply Search Filters. When you're done, click Close Advanced Search.)
  1. When you find the service, click the blue arrow on the right of the line for the service.
  1. Click the Telephone Number Management section.
  1. Click the checkbox(es) next to the number(s) you want to modify.

  2. From the Select Action list, select Download to Bulk Load.xls, then click Go.

    You'll receive an email with a link for you to open and save an Excel spreadsheet. The second tab of the spreadsheet includes instructions for how to complete your bulk upload. (You can assign users, modify allowed call types, or reassign routes on all selected numbers.) Also, be sure to save a copy of your work to your computer before you upload the document.

  3. In the DID Telephone Number Management section for the service, select Bulk Upload from the Select Action list, then click Go.

  4. Select the file you want to upload.

  5. You'll receive a confirmation email.
