Learn the essentials for using your new phone system so that you can get on to successfully handling your work day.

1Create Your Account

In order to use the GoTo app, you must have an active account.

  1. Verify that your Admin has already added you as new user in the administration portal.
  2. Ask your Admin if an invitation email has been sent to you or if you will need to register using the link in the next step.
  3. We are in the process of migrating all accounts to the invitation email, but if your account has not been migrated yet, you will need to register your email address here: https://onjive.com/register
    NOTE: Make sure your Business Email Address matches the Email your Admin added beforehand. If there is a mismatch, you will not be able to sign in. If you are unsure, ask your Admin.

About this task: Incoming calls are routed through your Find Me/Follow Me settings when your line is directly dialed, a call is transferred to your line, or your line is used in a Line & Voicemail node. However, these settings are overridden on a per-call basis when your line is used in a Simple Dial node or another user’s Find Me/Follow Me ring step.

    Note: If you have Block Caller ID enabled on the phone number routed to the line, the External Caller ID will continue to be blocked as the call is routed to other ring step destinations.
     Pass-through Caller ID
    Controls which caller ID is displayed for ring steps that include external numbers.
    When enabled: the caller ID of the original caller is displayed.
    When disabled: the line's External Caller ID is displayed.
    Call Screening  Direct connect: Connects you immediately when you accept the call.
    Confirm pick-up: Tells you the caller ID and then gives you the option to accept the incoming call. If you don't accept the call it will be sent to the next step in the dial plan.
    Announce call: Tells you which extension was called and then gives you the option to accept the incoming call. If you don't accept the call it will be sent to the next step in the dial plan.
    Screen call: Prompts the caller to record their name and then gives the option to accept the incoming call. If you don't accept the call it will be sent to the next step in the dial plan.
     Ring TimeDefines the number of seconds the call rings before going to the next ring step. This is overridden by any Simple Dial nodes that reference the line in a dial plan.
     No answer, send toDefines what happens if the call is never answered.

    Internal: Sends the caller to a specified internal extension.

     If call fails, send toDefines what happens if the call fails, like in the case of an internet or power outage.
    Unspecified: Follows the No answer, send to ring step.

    External Number: Sends the caller to a specified external number.
