Local dialing for Global Office Users


1. Set Region: select the proper dialing plan by specifying the country and area code on Settings > Region page

• The available dialing plan options (shown as countries) are those that have been purchased by the account with digital lines. 

• Users can select the country they locate in from the ‘Country’ dropdown list. The default option is the country of the company’s main number. 

• Area code setting applies to CA and US only. 


2. E.164 format all phone numbers in the ‘To’ and ‘From’ fields and login account. 


3. Do local dialing by entering a short number in the To field, the app will add the country code w/ area code to the number following the Region settings of the logged in user. 

For example, a UK Global Office user who selects the corresponding dialing plan for the UK will no longer need to dial 011442035551212 or +442035551212 and can now simply enter 0203551212 or 203551212 to call that local number. 

NOTE: If you have no access to the Call feature, you will see an error message about having no access to the feature.
