Manage site profiles and caller ID with AT&T Collaborate

With the AT&T Collaborate SM service, caller ID settings define what identifying information appears on the device of the people you call.

Caller ID has company-level and site-level settings. Company-level settings apply to all users throughout an organization unless you define site-specific or user-specific settings. The order of precedence starts with a user, then a site, and then the company.

If you make no changes to the settings, the company settings are:

External calls show the caller’s phone number.

Inter-site calls (to someone at a different site within the same company) show the caller’s site prefix and extension or just the extension if no site prefix is defined.

Intra-site calls (to someone at the same site) show the caller’s extension.

In this guide, you’ll learn how to:
