Direct dial number benefits

Think of direct dial numbers like virtual phone numbers that can be routed to answer at any extension, ring group or auto attendant. Multiple direct dial numbers from different locations can ring at the same extension. This makes it easier to advertise in different geographic areas.

You can also run call reports on individual numbers to give you insights about where your callers are coming from. These numbers can be set up in Configuration Manager or Account Manager.
