CT Cloud Voice Admin - Short Codes

Short Codes

Short Codes function as a company wide speed dial, allowing users to dial 1 to 7 digits to reach a pre-programmed external number or extension . Please remember the following requirements:

• A Short Code must not match any other Short Code, Call Park Orbit Code, star replacement code, or Intercom Code defined for this Business Group, or any star replacement code, external line code or internal line code defined for a PBX within the Business Group.

• The code or its initial digits must not match any Call Services access code. For example, do not configure a short code of *3 or *345 if you use *345 for an accesscode.
