Adding Extension Numbers in Aloware

Aloware lets admins add extensions for better customer service. Assign to users for easy access. Add extensions to ring groups in your Aloware account.

Aloware allows for the addition of extension numbers, which can enhance customer service across your company. These extensions provide a direct way for callers to reach specific users, streamlining the communication process.

Only admins in Aloware can add and assign extension numbers.

Assigning an Extension Number to a User

Assigning an extension number to a user or agent simplifies contact access, eliminating the need to navigate an IVR (Interactive Voice Response) system.

  2. Select the user from the Users page.
  3. Click on Settings > Inbound Call Settings.
  4. In the Extension section, select an extension number to assign to the user.

Admins can provide callers with the option to dial the agent's extension before connecting to the IVR or a group of agents.
