Welcome! In this Mobility getting started guide, I'll demonstrate how to add a new phone number - called a remote destination to your Mobility Services.
Using Firefox, go to myphone.uchicago.edu, and click the User Options drop-down, select Mobility Settings and go to remote destinations. Then, click the Add New button. When the status is ready, fill out the form.
For the name use something you can remember. This "remote destination" is for my cell - so I'll name it "My Cell". For the destination number include 9 + 1 then the number you want to add. I recommend keeping the defaults for the Ring Timers, but if you want more information watch the Mobility Ring Timer video. For the remote destination profile, click the drop-down arrow and select your name SNR. This is the profile that was set up for you by IT Services.
Next, If the number you are adding is a mobile phone, check the box next to mobile Phone. Mobile Connect allows you to switch between your desk phone and cell phone while on a call. If you like this option, check the box next to Enable Mobile Connect. There are many more options available for new remote destinations, you can learn about the other options by watching the rest of Mobility Videos. Most users will stick with the defaults, so that's what I'll do now. To finish adding your new Remote Destination - click the save button. You will see an Add Successful message confirming that your new destination has been added to your profile. However, for your office line to ring to your new remote destination you must associate the line by checking the box under line association.
Thank you for watching this quick tip, brought to you by IT Services.
