***Important Notes***

Do not try to set up or activate your RingCentral account while using Remote Desktop. This will not work. 

When placing a call off campus,caller ID may or may not be processed by all phone carriers. When leaving a message, be sure to include the TWU phone number for a return call. 

If you want to use a different number for your caller ID, it must be a "Company Number." Any number assigned to an individual (e.g. a person who answers a mainline as a person, rather than a queue) can't be used as a company number and therefore can't be used for Caller ID.
