Set up Notifications

The Virtual Office desktop app provides improved notification for incoming calls, chats, voicemails, and faxes. You can choose to be notified of an incoming interaction via audio or visual alert, or by having the application window pop to the front of your desktop. You can also keep alerts onscreen to help you not miss incoming interactions when you are away from your screen.

To access notification settings, click from the bottom toolbar.
Select Virtual Office >Settings from the Virtual Office desktop app menu.

The task bar icon for the Virtual Office desktop app flashes yellow (Windows) or bounces (Mac) for notifications. The system tray icon (Windows) or launcher icon (Mac) shows the number of new messages you've received.
You can customize your notifications via the following settings:
