Voice User List provides an easy way of managing and activating multiple Users on Intermedia Unite Voice services.
The users can be in two states:

  • Active User is a user who has Cloud Voice service enabled and phone number assigned.
  • Inactive User is a user who doesn't have a primary phone number assigned and PBX services are disabled.

Changes that can be applied to users

Inactive Users

For inactive users you can:

  • Enable Cloud PBX 
  • Assign location 
  • Assign phone numbers 
  • Assign extensions. 
Note: users should already be created. If there are no users created, click on Create user button. Or in HostPilot navigate to Users > Create User > create new Cloud PBX users.

Active users

For active users, you can disable Cloud PBX. It will:

  • Prevent selected users from making and receiving calls.
  • Unassign all phone numbers from the users. Phone numbers will be parked on the account and available for re-assignment.
  • Any unused rebates associated with the users will be permanently deleted. Rebates that have been used will result in a financial penalty being applied to the account.
  • Monthly voice service charges will be removed for the users and will be reflected in the next bill.

      Configuring
      In case there are error messages, proceed to the next step.

  6. You may see error message # users were not validated if:
    1. There are no numbers available for auto-assignment.
      Resolution: If a phone number cannot be auto-assigned because there are no available numbers for that location, you should park any number and assign it to the user. To do so, go to Choose new number. Next, add the desired number followed by going back to this user list and assigning the number to the user.
    2. The specified number is unavailable.
      Resolution: To fix this problem, select another phone number for the user.
    3. The specified extension is unavailable.
      Resolution: To fix this problem, select another extension for the user.
      Errors
      Users that were not configured, will be marked with an error sign. To filter out users with errors click on All users > Users with errors.
      Note: all actions will be rolled-back for users with errors. 
      Try to manage users with errors individually, changing the setup. For example, you may change the option on how the phone number is assigned. If a specific area code was used initially, try to Get a new number option. 
      If you see the error message again, contact Technical Support.
