This document lists options for those people who have to share on-campus space with another employee
There are three main options that can be used for shared workspaces: Jabber, Extension Mobility, and Multiple Lines on a single phone. You can use more than one option. Please look through the descriptions of the items to find what would work best for you.
Jabber is softphone option. You can talk on your phone through your computer using a headset. If you are using Jabber when you work from home, you can continue using it at the office.
Confirm with your IT staff that Jabber is installed on the computer you will be using. Request a Jabber account (if you do not have one already). Cisco VoIP Request Forms
Extension Mobility is a feature for Cisco phones that allows users to take their phone lines and device settings with them to Cisco phones across campus.
Find out the model of telephone you will be using. Fill out the Extension Mobility Account request form. Cisco VoIP - Extension Mobility
The standard 7841 Cisco Phone has the capability to have 4 lines on it. If you are returning to the same shared space each time, this may be option. Each user could have their own line on a shared phone.
Talk to the person who manages the phones for your department. Ask them to request your line to be added to the phone near the workstation you will be using. If you are the person who manages the phones, please go to the Line Change Request. Cisco VoIP Request Forms
