Set up Virtual Office Users

A user is any Virtual Office contact assigned with 8x8 services (licenses) and permissions. If you would like your contact to communicate via phone, you need to promote it to a user by assigning a service, a telephone number, and an extension number. You may have created a contact with minimum requirements and saved in your tenant. You now need a physical device for the user and to activate it. A softphone is assigned by default.

You can create individual users or create them in bulk. To create multiple users at once, see Create Users in Bulk.

  1. From the main menu in Configuration Manager, go to Users.
  2. Click + Create User, or click to edit an existing contact.
  3. Follow the instructions to set up additional features for the user.
  4. Click to save the user.
