When accessing TIM Plus a username and password are required to be entered in the web browser, which form a login credential known as a Web user. There is no limit on the amount of web users that you can create within the system. The login account for each user can be restricted to a specific site or team, allowing you to have full control over their Directory privileges.
Adding a new web user
To add a web user to the system, click on thebutton, as shown below:
A new window will open, allowing you to enter the details for the web user.
The General tab allows you to configure the login details of the web user and apply any directory restrictions, if required.
|Username||The username the web user will use to log in with.|
|Password||The password the web user will use to log in with.|
|Display name||The name you want the web user to be identified in the reports.|
|Email address||The email address of the web user. This e-mail address can be used when scheduling reports.|
Restricting access to Directory
TIM Plus allows you to restrict a web user's access to specific parts of the Directory. To do so, select from the drop-down list the site and/or the group you want the user to be allowed to access. If this is left at the default setting, the web user will be allowed to access all areas of the Directory.
Once you configure the fields you want, click on thebutton to add the new web user to the system.
The Phone numbers tab allows you to add specific location names to phone numbers, so in the reports or display boards this name will appear, rather than the generic location name. For example, instead of the generic name "London", you can customise the settings to show "Tri-Line".
To add a location name, type in the telephone number as it is usually dialled, and add the name that you would like to be associated with this number, then press thebutton to apply the changes:
NOTE: Locations can be added to part or full numbers. For example, if you call several numbers in a range of DDI numbers, you may only want to add the first part of the number and use ** as wild cards (e.g. 020726526** for Tri-line)
If you no longer want a location associated with a particular number, click on the icon alongside it to remove it.
If you would like to search if a number is already in the Directory, click on thebutton as shown here:
A new window will pop up, where you can enter the phone number you are looking for, as shown in the screenshot below:
You can also search by location name, as shown below:
Importing phone contacts
To directly import contacts into the system, you will need to have your data available in CSV format. The format of the CSV list should contain two columns, one for the phone number and the other for the name. The two columns can be separated using a common delimiter (e.g. comma, tab, semicolon).
Paste the list into the provided box and click on thebutton. The contacts will be imported automatically in the system.
TIM Plus allows you to allocate names to account codes, so the reports can show this name instead, rather than the generic account code which might be almost meaningless.
To add an account name, type in the account code number as it will be entered on your telephone system and add the name that you would like to be associated with it, then press thebutton.
Search account code
If you would like to search if an account number is already in the Directory, click on thebutton as shown here:
A new window will pop up, where you can enter the account code you are looking for, as shown in the screenshot below:
Importing account code contacts
To directly import account codes into the system, you will need to have your data available in CSV format. The format of the CSV list should contain two columns, one for the account code and the other for the name. The two columns can be separated using a common delimiter (e.g. comma, tab, semicolon).
Paste the list into the provided box and click on thebutton. The account codes will be imported automatically in the system.
