HOWTO Replace Caller ID
To replace Caller ID with the custom data do the following:
- Navigate to 'DID'
- Click on the 'Edit' button next to the preferred DID
- Click on 'Advanced Options'
- Set 'Replace Caller ID'.
- For example, if you set the value of Replace Caller ID to 'USDID' it will display 'USDID' on your phone display, for all calls coming through this DID.
- Providing 'USDID %CALLERID%', will display 'USDID John 55510205' on your phone display, where 55510205 is caller's phone number and John is caller's name.
- Click on 'Save'
Note that the variable %CALLERID% contains the current call's Caller ID ("name" and <number>). %CALLERIDNAME% and %CALLERIDNUM% can also be used to get the current name and number independently.
