We have a number of clients that have multiple outwardly facing numbers and have requested the ability to select the outbound caller id on a call by call basis from their Polycom VVX desktop phones. Is this even an option? In my research, I have not located any information that suggests that it would be possible but, admittedly, I have limited experience with the system and am always learning. :)

I have suggested that, if the client want's to do this that they can initiate the call from their desktop or mobile app and set the outbound caller ID that way and either complete the call using the app or flip it to their desk phone as a workaround.

Thanks to the community for sharing their experience and knowledge!

Jerry - I saw that you and Marco discussed this and that a possible work around is for the number to be on assigned to the Auto-Receptionist and then it can be pulled for the Caller ID.  Then an Advanced Rule can be set for inbound calls to that number to be directed towards a call queue.
