Shared Call Appearance 5

Shared Call Appearance 5 allows Users to share multiple call appearances of their line number (CLI) over multiple devices, a maximum of 5. For example, a Personal Assistant can take calls for multiple Executives and identify each line on their handset. Each Executive will share their CLI on the Personal Assistant’s device.


The Maximum number of devices you can share a number across is 5. Shared Call Appearance is not available in all packs.  Ensure you check the Product Handbook to see if this is available.

For SIPT users, internal calls between PBX users that do not pass through the WHC platform will not go to the applications used.
