Tips, tricks and support















The Home screen provides easy access to all features of the MiVoice Office app and enables quick communications with your contacts.


Please select the appropriate tab below to view information specific to your type of mobile phone.


Home Screen Overview

The Home screen provides a header bar at the top and a navigation bar at the bottom, which provides icons for accessing all other features of the MiVoice Office app. The rest of the Home screen is designed for adding desired contacts as Tiles to enable quick communications with these contacts.

     

Header Bar

The header bar at the top of the Home screen displays the user's avatar and presence on the left. On the right is the dialpad, which is most useful for placing calls to phone numbers not found in your Contacts or Call History.

    

Tiles

The space below the header bar on the Home screen is for adding Tiles. You can create a Tile for an individual contact or a group of contacts.
There are three Home screens where you can add Tiles. The first home screen is indicated by the dot shown with a red border in the image below. To access the second or third Home screens, swipe left once or twice, which moves the dot to the second or third positions. Each Home screen can hold up to 16 Tiles.
To add a Tile to a Home screen:
  1. Touch and hold the desired Home screen until the + sign appears.
  2. Tap the + sign, which opens the Search Contact List screen.
  3. Tap each desired contact (adds a check mark next to each).
  4. Tap “Add to Home” at the bottom of the screen.
  5. Tap Save at the bottom of the Home screen.
Each Tile displays that contact’s availability status. Tap any Tile to access options to call, chat, or view details for that contact. For related information, see Manage Contacts and Manage Groups.

    

Navigation Bar

From left to right, the icons in the navigation bar provide access to the Home screen, Messages, Contacts, Call History, and Settings as shown in the top image above. Your current presence (availability status) displays as a green (available), red (busy), or red and white (do not disturb) vertical line on the left side of the navigation bar as shown in both images above. To set your presence or access your profile, swipe the navigation bar to the right and tap the desired presence icon or your avatar.
