Logging into phones as an extension (hot-desking)

Users can log into ports that are categorized as free ports on the Extensions panel by using the associated feature codes (the default is *11 to log in and *12 to log out) followed by their extension number and pin. Calls placed from a device connected to such a port will be flagged in CDRs as having originated from the extension number that is logged in to the device.

To make a port that currently has an extension assigned to it available for dynamic login, first unassign the extension from the port, resulting in a free extension and a free port.

Note: In order to log in dynamically to a free device using a free extension, the extension must have a user pin configured.
