Enhanced toolbar

The enhanced toolbar requires a specific license which Departmental Managers must authorise. The enhanced toolbar is recommended for staff who either regularly work from home, or who work on the move.  The features that enable these working patterns are: 

  • Remote office [PDF] - utilising separate telephones (e.g. your home phone) as your business phone.
  • Simultaneous ring - enabling more than one telephone to ring at the same time.
