Batch adding new common area phones

In the second phase of the provisioning process, you will be able to add several common area phones at the same time. During batch installation of the phones, you will have to complete assisted provisioning if the common area phone does not support ZTP.

Note :
Adding a common area phone can only be done in batches. If you already have an existing common area phone, you won’t be able to upgrade it using this feature.

  2. Click on Phone System Management from the navigation menu, then click Users & Rooms from the drop-down menu.

    Note :  The first row with the names of the fields should not be deleted.
  7. In order to start the batch process, click Upload CSV and then select your completed CSV file from the drop down menu.
    Note : 
    The batch process will not be completed if one or more fields are filled in incorrectly. There are a few options that you can choose from:
    • When you click on Details, you will see a description of each field that has been filled in incorrectly.
    • The batch process can be continued by pressing Ignore Issues and Upload Others (if applicable). There will be no import of any rows in the CSV file that have errors in them. In the event that all rows have errors, you will not be able to see this option.
    • The batch process will not be able to complete if all the rows in the CSV file have errors in them. Once you have fixed the CSV file, click on the Reupload button.
