Virtual numbers

To make a call between a panel, an indoor video entry phone (monitor), or a user phone, the Link version with SIP must be deployed and the corresponding license must be applied for the server. Here you can create and manage virtual numbers.

For a user registered in the Link app, a virtual number is created and applied automatically. You can check the number in the user profile

In the tab, you see all created virtual numbers with detailed information about them. With the help ofandbuttons, you can edit or delete numbers.

Virtual numbers filtering 

There is a filter by number, name, activeness, user, device, and group. So, you can configure a flexible data display and quick search. To do this, you need to click the Add filter button and set the necessary parameter/s. For some searches, results can equal your search (so to be exactly as you indicate), or they can be less or great than your parameter, e.g. search less than indicated number will display all numbers created before the indicated. 

You can select a few parameters and choose whether the results will match all filters or any of them. In addition, you can save your search parameters for further use by clicking the corresponding button. All saved parameters are displayed after clicking the Segments button.
