How do casual or sessional staff request a phone number?
All casual and sessional staff have been given access to the voice calling feature of Skype for Business, allowing them to make calls to internal Deakin phone numbers and contacts.
To request a phone number
If you require access to make external calls, you can complete the online Phone Update Request Form to request a "private" extension number. You will need to select the option to "Create a new number", then select "A phone number for an individual person", and finally select "NO" under the heading "Do you require a public number?"
Before access is granted you will need to select the dialing access required and provide approval from your Manager and a billing code for charging of calls.
