Tech Tip Tuesday: Phone Changes

A black-and-white photo of an antique telephoneWith changes to personnel and office locations, sometimes uncertainty arises about how to handle phone setups.

Employees who move from one location on campus to another, and who will be keeping the same extension, can simply take their existing phone with them to their new location. When it’s plugged in, the extension stays the same even though it’s now in a different building. LITS does ask to be notified when a phone moves to a different building, so we can update records for emergency calls to be routed correctly.

If for some reason their extension needs to change, or if a new employee is coming into an office that already has a phone, please notify LITS so we can update the phone setup to reflect the new extension and caller ID.

In the event of such changes, we just ask you to open a Web Help Desk ticket with the Request Type “Phone”, and an LITS technician will follow up with you.

Finally, in the event that there is a phone that will no longer be used, please let LITS know.
