VCU Telecommunications Services offers remote access options to your university or hospital telephone number via alternate telephone numbers (i.e. LAN line or mobile phone) and/or computer.
- If voicemail is associated with the line, users can set up calling options using Find Me, Notify Me, or Call Me through our web interface via a computer. The customer controls where, when, and/or how calls are sent to an alternate telephone number. For details on using these options, visit the Telecommunications Services User Guides web page.
- Avaya one-X Mobile and Avaya Communicator are applications loaded on an Apple iOS or Google Android mobile device. Calls to the office number simultaneously ring to the desk and mobile device and calls placed from the mobile device, via the application, give the appearance of the office number to the called party. Unanswered calls will roll to the office voice mail, unless a customer is active on a call and a second call presents; in this case, the call will go the alternate telephone number’s voicemail. For more details, visit the Telecommunications Services mobile app web page.
Please contact the VCU helpIT Center (828-2227, helpIT@vcu.edu) with any questions.
