    The New Phone popup opens.

  2. Enter the following settings in the appropriate fields:
    • Phone Number: The complete number, including all prefixes (area code, etc.).
    • DNID: An identifier for the number, generally the last 4 or 6 digits of the phone number.
    • Group Name: A user defined logical association for the number. This setting is not mandatory.
  3. At the top of the popup, click Add.
    The New Phone popup closes, and the number is added to the phone list.
