3CX Phone System Help

Click on the "Contacts" button at the bottom menu to access the phonebook. There are four types of contacts in the 3CX Phonebook (contact list):

  • Company Contacts: These are contacts retrieved from 3CX Phone System.
  • Personal Contacts: These are contacts added by the user and can be seen only in the user's client.
  • Extensions: Your company extensions.
  • Mobile Phone Contacts Android , iPhone: Contacts retrieved from the user's mobile phone.
  • Note: To be able to add, or edit company contacts you must be given the right to do so by the 3CX Phone System administrator.

    1. While on the phonebook tab, click on in the top right corner.
    2. In the new 3CX contact screen fill in the contact details.
    3. If you have the rights to create company contacts you can select the "Add to company phonebook" option. This option will save the contact to the Company Phonebook, allowing all users within the company to access it.
    4. Click on "OK" to save the contact.
