What is a Main Number

A Main Number is a telephone number that essensys will pre-configure with specific phone settings to allow a Client to use this number as the primary inbound telephone number for their business. The Telephone Manager section of Connect then hosts a Main Number Setup page where you and your Clients are able to quickly and easily direct inbound calls to their desired location to understand this further and how to change a Main Number please see this guide here.

Removing the Main Number setting

If you are trying to Remove a Main Number which is already Active within Connect as a first step we need to make the Number Reserved, to do this if we select the Number within Telephone Manager and then press Edit.

Once in Edit we now need to change the Enabled section to OFF
