SIMPLE administrator dashboard

From the SIMPLE administrator Dashboard tab, you have access to four wizards:

  1. Add a phone to a common area, such as a breakroom or lobby.
  2. Handle incoming calls
  3. Set up a user
  4. Set up office hours

Under Orders and Inventory you'll see your total open orders, stations available and used, services, and numbers available and used.

There are four different ways to manage the calls your organization receives:

  1. Hunt group wizard — Select all phones to ring at the same time or multiple phones to ring in a certain order.

  2. Call queue wizard — This feature is not currently supported.

  3. Call Forwarding wizard — Calls made to one number are redirected to ring at a different number.

  4. Auto Attendant wizard — Calls are automatically transferred to an extension by the system, rather than have a receptionist or operator answer the call.
