Setting Phones Options

The settings on the Phones tab display phone numbers where you can be reached. You can store these phone numbers for your own personal reference, or you can publish them so people you have granted the appropriate access to can see them.

Note: If your work phone number is published in your organization’s directory, that phone number will be available to anyone in your company regardless of their access level. You cannot modify or delete phone numbers that are published in your organization’s directory.

When you enter a phone number, you must use a specific format:

  • Your country code (for example, 1 for the United States)

  • Your area or city code

  • The digits of your phone number without hyphens, periods, spaces, or other punctuation

For example, if you are from the United States and have the phone number (425)-555-1234 you would enter the phone number like this:

14255551234
