2Set Up Your Users

Show All | Hide All

A user assigned a GoToConnect license during this creation process automatically has a direct extension and voicemail box created for them. Once the invitation is accepted, they can download and log in to our softphone app on their mobile phone or desktop. If they want to use a physical phone, you will need to add that device to your account after creating the user. See "Set Up Your Phones & Apps" once you have added all of your users.

1. Log in to your admin portal.

2. From People →Users, select Add User.

3. Select the checkbox next to each product license you want to add to the new user and then select Next. If you are adding an administrative user without products, you do not need to select a checkbox.

4. Enter the new user's name and email address. Tip: If multiple users will have the same configuration of products and roles, you can select + Add another user or Import users to upload an existing .csv. Verify you have enough available licenses before moving forward.

5. Complete each field of the form.
  • Apply a settings template. Choose the system default or your custom settings if you have previously created a settings template.
  • Choose a role. Note: If you are assigned the admin role (not super admin), you will not be able to see or assign a role to the new users. They will be created as members.
  • If applicable, apply a user group.
  • Choose a language.
  • Choose a welcome email or select the checkbox to decline sending.

6. Select Send Invitation when complete.

Result: The user will receive the welcome email with steps on how to begin using the system. If the user exists on another account, they will be sent an invitation to transfer to your account. If a user does not receive the welcome email within 10 minutes, have them check their junk/spam folders. You can also re-send the invitation.

What to do next: Send the new user the Getting Started Guide for Users to help get them acquainted with our softphone app. If they are using a physical phone, you can send them the appropriate phone guide for their device once you've added it to the system. Users can visit the specific product support sites for help with other product licenses as needed. See below for more information on how to customize user settings.
If multiple product licenses are assigned to your account, the product setting bubbles will display for each user, regardless if the user is actually assigned to the products or not. If you assign one of these licenses to the user later on, the settings configured here will be applied automatically.

1. Log in to your admin portal.

2. From People > Users, select the user who needs changes made. Tip: While on any tab in a user's profile, you can select the three dots icon on the top-right to make changes to the overview page or delete the user. Use the breadcrumbs in the top-left to go back to the main list.

  • Device Access Groups: Select + Add to Device Access Group to make changes. The visibility of this setting depends on your license.

4. From the Products tab, manage which products a user can access. If all available licenses have been used, you will see the option to + Add Licenses. Depending on the license, you may have the ability to control the nested licenses separately. For example, with GoToConnect Premium, you can turn off either the phone or meeting access for a user.

5. From the Settings > Phones tab, change the following:
  • General: Choose the user's dialable username and password.
  • Call Routing: Choose their primary and secondary extensions.

  • Audio: Choose which features you want to enable, such as allowing VOIP audio, allowing long distance or toll-free numbers to be dialed, or allowing custom conference calls.
  • Features: Choose which features you want to enable, such as the ability to record and save the training, share webcams, or allow attendees without the desktop app to join in a web browser.

10. From the Settings > Assist tab, apply a product settings template by selecting the Apply template button to choose from a list of templates you have previously created or change the following:
  • General: Choose which features you want to enable, such as the ability to remotely control a device, send files, or access unattended devices.

11. Select Save.
Ensure your user(s) receive and follow the steps on their welcome email after you add them to your account. If they did not receive it, you can re-send the invitation from your admin portal by clicking on People > Users > the specific user's name > the three dots in the top right corner of their detail page > Resend Invitation. You can also send your user(s) to http://onjive.com/register to complete their registration.

Important: The email address the user enters during registration must match the email field you set on their user profile. If there is a mismatch, the user will not be able to log in.

5Create Your Call Routes

Show All | Hide All

There are many options for routing your calls depending on what you want the experience to be for your customers. Every phone number can have the same experience or a unique one. Here are some of the most common destinations for phone numbers:
  • A user's direct extension (personal line)
  • A dial plan with various nodes such as:
    • An auto-attendant that gives the customer options to choose from
    • A schedule for open and closed hours
    • An external number node that goes to a cell phone or third party phone number
  • A virtual fax line
  • A virtual conference room
  • A ring group or call queue

If these terms are unfamiliar to you, see below to learn what types of extensions there are and what they are best used for:
  • Direct Extensions: This dials a user directly as a primary or secondary line.
  • Dial Plans: This is a custom flow you build with multiple elements available for use such as a scheduler, auto attendant, dial by name directory, or caller ID modifier. You can set these up so that callers have multiple choices to choose from when calling a particular phone number.
  • Call Queues: This dials a group of user's direct extensions with advanced distribution, agent, and caller settings. You also have access to reporting features when using queues.
  • Ring Groups: This dials a smaller group of user's direct extensions and/or external phone numbers.
  • Virtual Fax: This allows callers to send a fax which is received as an attachment to an email on your system.
  • Shared Voicemail: This sends callers to a voicemail box that is shared by multiple users. You can use this in addition to or in place of a user's personal voicemail box that comes standard with their direct extension.
  • Conference Bridges: This sends callers to a virtual conference room that allows up to 20 participants. You can secure these rooms with participant and/or host pins.
See Build your call routes to learn more about these options and how to set them up.
After you choose the right type of extension(s) to add to your account, follow these steps to create them:

1. Log in to your admin portal.

2. From Phone System > Extension Overview, click Add Extension.

3. Choose the type of extension you want to create from the drop-down menu.

Note: When creating a direct extension, ring group, or shared voicemail, a voicemail box is automatically created and associated with that extension type. You can customize your greeting and other voicemail settings as needed.

4. Complete each field of the form.

5. Click Save when completed.

6. Click on the newly created extension from the overview list to update the settings.

Important: If you are going to route a phone number to a dial plan, make sure all of the pieces you want to include in your dial plan (such as a schedule, call queue, or the sound clip that greets customers and tells their options) have been built before you put together your dial plan.
