Frequently Asked Questions
How do I log into a phone?
By default, your extension should be appearing on your own phone’s login screen. However, if you see a message stating "Enter Extension and press Enter or OK," use your 5-digit extension as your username and password to log in.
Can I log into another person's phone?
Yes. All Avaya phones allow you to log into another user's phone, which is a feature known as Guest Login. This is particularly useful if you have rotating staff using the same desk phone. To log into another phone, push the Home button, select Guest Login on the screen, and use your 5-digit extension and password to log in. By default, Guest Login will expire after 10 hours.
How do I retrieve voicemail when I am away from my desk?
When you miss a call and receive a voicemail, your new phone will automatically deliver the voicemail to your WCMC email account. The email will include an attached .wav audio file of the voicemail message. Additionally, you can call 646-962-6800 from any phone and use your 5-digit extension and password to retrieve your voicemail.
