RingCentral has a number of categorical fields, such as site and department. I'm wondering what the best practices are for discerning which employees are remote workers and how to best manage their settings.

2287 USA based users, 28 different sites,  3800 DID lines - all Polycom VVX500 phones

2018-10-10 We have 28 sites and in the Department field in the Service Web Portal - that is where we list their physical room/office location and we echo same info in the phone "nickname" field

I also figured one of those fields would be a likely option. I use the 'department' field for departments, however, since I assign different settings by that metric. Phone nickname is a good suggestion though.
