Managing site codes Follow

Overview

After adding multiple sites to your account, you can optionally assign a site code to each site. This allows users to easily identify and dial users in the same site.

Assigning site codes will cause the following changes to phone users' extensions:

  • Site codes will be prefixed to each extension number that belongs to that site.
  • Existing extensions will be shortened (known as the short extension) so that they don't exceed the 6-digit limit. Users can dial the short extension to reach users in the same site.
  • The long extension is a combination of the site code and short extension. This can be used by external callers or phone users in other sites.
  • Site codes can be 1 to 3 digits. Since there is a default 6-digit limit on extensions, the short extension can be 2 to 5 digits. Contact Zoom if you require longer extensions.
