With your 3CX phone system you have a few options. You can customize your settings on your personal phone attached to your extension. These settings can be accessed through a web client. This information can be sent to you from your IT administrator. You could also try searching for 3CX Welcome in your email.

Once you’ve clicked through all these links, you’ll probably find that you are a 3CX master. If you are looking for more information about phone systems in general. We have created a short video series about the several types of phone systems you can purchase for your company. We wrote about it more in depth here: Why Would I Need to Change or Update my Phone System? and What is Hosted PBX? Is it Better then 3CX?
But we basically say that 3CX is the best option for a larger business, hosted PBX could be better for a smaller scale business, and we go over how you could make the transition to a new phone system, why you might want to do that. Old coper wire phone lines are good but having physical phone lines now is old fashioned in 2021.
3CX goes a long way. Especially working from home. You are easily able to install the 3CX app on your phone, work from your cell phone if needed, transfer calls, all the same controls as a regular handset. You also can work from home and use a headset from the desktop app. 3CX has really thought of everything when it comes to working from home.
