Manage your Phone Extension with the VoIP Dashboard

Overview

There is an online portal you can use to manage your extension whether you are on- or off-campus, or if you have a Grandstream phone, a Zulu softphone, or just an extension.  The dashboard allows you to perform a range of features, the most common of which are outlined here.

The URL for the VoIP Dashboard is:

go.carleton.edu/voipdashboard

Access the VoIP Dashboard

  1. If you are off-campus, turn on the VPNExample login screen which is titled User Control Panel and shows a sample username of fschiller and a completed password above password and remember me options and the login button.
  2. Visit go.carleton.edu/voipdashboard
  3. Sign in with your username (not full email) and password
  4. If you are visiting for the first time you will need to set up a dashboard, and if you're returning you can edit the widgets that appear on your dashboard
