The document describes how to request new lines, changes to existing lines or accounts or removal of lines in the Cisco VoIP system.
To facilitate work from home, we have created a new form to request a Jabber/Webex account for an existing line. To expedite account creation, we are not requiring an authorized user to fill out the request for you.
Only Authorized Users may submit other requests.
To request a new phone line/account, a change or move to an existing phone line/account, or the removal of a phone line/account in the Cisco VoIP system please use the following links to submit the request. These requests will be sent to the Network Applications team through WiscIT powered by Cherwell, our ticket management software. To check on the status of a request, use HelpOnline. Please note that in order to view on HelpOnline, you must use your correct NetID in the form.
A new line request is when a department wants a new Cisco VoIP phone number that is currently not in use on any system. Examples would be new employees, adding a phone to a conference room, adding an additional phone to an office, etc. These requests will receive an available phone number from the University's pool of spare phone numbers. If a request is to move or change a specific phone line that is currently in use then that should be submitted as a line change request (see below).
A change is a modification to an existing phone line or telephone. Examples would be when one employee retires and someone else is hired to replace them and will use the same phone line, when a customer is moving offices or buildings, when an employee changes name, call routing changes, voicemail changes, or any other change not covered by another form.
This form is for users that already have a telephone or only need a softphone account for the desktop, iPhone and/or Android be created for them. Please note that Jabber/Webex calling accounts must be assigned to a person rather than role or service account. If you already have a telephone number assigned to you, you do not need your authorized agent to submit this on your behalf; you may submit the request yourself. Jabber and Webex use the same profile. There is no need to request Webex app calling if you already have Jabber or vice versa.
This form is a request to remove a user in the Cisco VoIP system. The phone number associated with this user will be removed from any phone (including Jabber/Webex) and added to the spare number list. The number will be held in the spare number list for six months and the department may request to reuse the number within that time. If there is a voicemail box associated with this line it will be deleted. Please submit separate forms for each account that needs changes.
Please use the Change Request form if you would like to remove a line from a telephone but still retain the phone number.
