Add someone's extension to my phone Polycom VVX 411

Hi,

 

Sorry if this question has already been asked.

 

I have the Polycom VVX 411 model phone and I would like to be able to pick-up a colleague's extension if they are away. Does anyone know how I can go about doing that? How do I program it into the phone?

 

Thanks for your help,

 

Jace

Hello @jacestar11 ,

 

Welcome to the Poly Community.

Both the communities Must Read First and the FAQ reference the basic minimum information a new or follow up post should contain.

This ensures the questions having to be asked are limited and any new or follow up post contains the right amount of details to ensure any voluntary participant within the community does not spend additional time chasing basic information.

As a reminder the basic information asked for:

 

  • Provide the exact Software Version of your Phone
  • Provide the Phone Model
  • Provide the Call Platform (aka openSIP,Teams, Skype for Business Online, Skype for Business on Premise, Lync)
  • Provide details if UC / SIP or ObiEdition
  • Additional Poly Infrastructure (RPRM,PDMS or BToE)
  • If applicable provide a backup of the phone in question

UC Software 4.0.0 or later via the Web Interface Utilities > Phone Backup & Restore > Phone Backup > Phone Backup. Please rename into .TXT or Zip the file to attach.
Since UC Software 5.9.0 simply provide this via the Web Interface Diagnostics > Download Support Information Package

  • If possible provide a Log and either attach them or use the Code Tag.Consult the Troubleshooting Section found within the FAQ if applicable
  • If possible provide the MAC Address or Serial of the device
  • Provide details for example if the issue is a day 1 issue or only happened after an upgrade or any other relevant details
  • For questions around Support please check here

 

Whilst providing some of these details may not directly impact any possible answer the community can provide, it does enable Poly to have an overview of the current software used. In addition, providing all details at the same time allow us to check logs or look up potential support partners if an issue needs to come into support. It also enables us to verify the entitlement for using features.

 

Please ensure you always check the FAQ's and/or utilize the community search before posting any new topics or follow up posts.

Please ensure to provide some feedback if this reply has helped you so other users can profit from your experience.

Best Regards

Hello @jacestar11 ,

 

chances are pretty slim that you can set this up yourself as this completely depends on the Switch and what it supports.

 

I suggest you try and find out who installed this and get them to help you. If this fails to provide me with the MAC as already instructed and I can check who we sold this to.

Is there a code that I can dial into the phone to pick-up another line that is ringing?

 

The person who handles the admin settings is way out of her elements so she has no idea how to do anything beyond assigning 1 extension to 1 phone.

Hello @jacestar11 ,

 

This completely depends on your SIP switch. It could be anything.
