    Hi,

    when call come in the client shows callingnumber:destination number. How can I change this so only the calling number is displayed?

    Thank you!

    Hello @Helmut72

    You can change this by navigating to Contacts / Options and under "Add Group, Queue or DID/DDI Names to Caller ID" option select Do not add. Let us know if that worked

    Worked, thank you. I couldn't find anything in the manual about this feature, what is the use case to append / prepend DID/DDI as it breaks displaying names correctly.

    Naming the ring group or inbound rule will make that show up on the phone display. This is useful for clients with phones that are a member of more than one department or business.
