Tips, tricks and support















The Home screen provides easy access to all OfficeLink features 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 header bar at the top of the Home screen displays circle shaped icons for accessing parked calls and the dialpad. The navigation bar at the bottom provides icons for accessing all other OfficeLink features. The rest of the Home screen is designed for adding desired contacts as Tiles to enable quick communications with these contacts.

     

Header Bar

The four numbered circles, which indicate parked calls, are touchable only when a call is parked on one of them. To learn more, see Park a Call. The rightmost circle opens the dialpad, which is most useful for placing calls to phone numbers not 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:

  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.
