(8) Teams

An overview of all teams and areas can be found here.

(9) Contacts

Here you can find the overview of your contacts and groups. Simplify connecting with the people you have contact with most often. You can create contact lists, then group them and customize contact information.

(10) Calls

Here you have access to your call list of all incoming and outgoing calls as well as missed calls. You can also dial phone numbers manually from here using the keypad. You can decide whether you want to make calls via audio or video.

It is possible to make calls via the softphone of the RWTH telephone system or via Webex cloud calling. With softphone calling, the Webex client connects to the RWTH PBX and you make the call using the business phone number. In contrast, cloud calling is a pure call via the Webex cloud and also only allows calling via the Webex client. In order to use Webex as a softphone, you must have a registration in the new Cisco PBX and activate the softphone client slider in the PBX portal.

(11) Voice mailbox

Here you can use your answering machine or your voice mailbox, if this has been activated in the TC portal.

If you ever can't answer a call and you have activated the voice mailbox, you can be left a voice message. You will see a red signal on counter that tells you the nature of your message. After that, you can check your voice mailbox directly in the app.

There, you can also see the voice messages received and sent. With the plus button you can record and send voice messages.

(12) Meetings

Here you will find an overview of scheduled meetings and have the option to schedule a meeting. You can also start a meeting from your personal room.

(15) Select Line

Here you will find the display and selection option of the desired line.
