Checking out the MyPhone UserPortal page

Users have their own MyPhone UserPortal page that allows them to review their own phone settings, change some settings, and listen to voicemail. This will not allow them to modify general phone system settings or other user settings.

To log in to your MyPhone UserPortal page, go to Start | All Programs | 3CX Phone System | MyPhone UserPortal.
