Assigning a phone to a user

Phones purchased from Nextiva are automatically provisioned and added to the account, so you can instantly assign them to users. However, non-Nextiva devices must be assigned to a user and provisioned for use with Nextiva voice. 

Choose the image that looks most like your screen once logged in.

Assigning a phone to a user

From the NextOS admin home page, select Users > Actions > Voice Setup or Voice Settings if the user is already set up with voice. Select Phone under Essential Settings on the left. 

Add a phone by choosing between the Available phones or by adding a New phone. To add a new phone, choose a phone > enter MAC address > Save.

TIP: If the exact model is not listed, pick Phone not listed (Generic SIP).
