How to Manage Your Status in 3CX

Don’t you hate it when someone disturbs you when you’re busy? An easy solution to that is managing your status on your 3CX phone line. It is a helpful, powerful tool for quick insight into what you and other people are doing.

The “Status” feature is a great way to inform colleagues of your availability and view who is on hand to take your calls. Avoid distractions and set your own status to let others know when you’re away or you don’t want to be disturbed.  

You may set your status on the 3CX App for Windows, 3CX Web Client, and 3CX App on iOS and Android. All devices share the same principles when it comes to managing your status.   

Simply click on the status selector near your name and choose from Available, Away, Do Not Disturb, Lunch, and Business Trip. You may change the status message and voicemail associated with each profile.
