When adding phone numbers you can choose the type of each phone number, eg. “Home Phone”, “Home Fax”, “Cell Phone”, “Work Phone” and “Work Fax”. The type label is displayed to the user when viewing the directory entry. Depending on your directory it may be beneficial to add additional phone number types such as “Shipping”, “Receiving” or “Warehouse”
To add custom phone number types, navigate to the Connections : Settings admin page, click the Field Configuration tab and scroll down to the Phone Fieldset. In the “Phone Type Options” section, click the “Add” button. After you do a new field will display giving you the opportunity to assign the phone number type name. Type in your desired name. The name you input will be the label displayed when displaying the directory entry. Check the box to activate the new type. Lastly, save the changes by clicking the “Save” button a the bottom of the settings page.
