FAQ

Hoteling allows users to associate their service profiles with devices other than their own.  This service can be used, for example, with transient employees.  For example, an enterprise can set up a visitor's office with a phone.  The user account associated with this phone would have the Hoteling Host service assigned.  A salesperson, with the Hoteling Guest service assigned, can associate their service profile with the phone in the visitor's office.

Hoteling consists of two separate services, Hoteling Host and Hoteling Guest.  The first service, Hoteling Host, is used to designate a particular user as a host, allowing other users, with the Hoteling Guest service assigned, to associate their service profile with the Host user's device.  The second service, Hoteling Guest, is used to allow a Hoteling Guest user to associate their service profile with a Hoteling Host user's device.

Steps

To activate your phone device as a guest:

  1. Click On.

  2. If your Host Association Limit is enforced, select the Limit Association to check box and enter a timeout limit in the Hours text box, after which the hotel-guest association ends.  The Limit Association to time must be equal to or less than the Host Association Limit of the Hoteling Host (see NOTE 1 below).  If the Host Association Limit is not enforced, you can set an association with a host that will never expire by un-checking the Limit Association to check box, although the hours text box must still be populated.  If the host does not enforce the association limit but the guest chooses to set the limit, the maximum association limit hours defined by the guest is not restricted by the host's association limit hour.

  3. To select a host, move a name from the Available Hosts column to the Associated Hosts column.

  4. On the Available Hosts column, select the host.

  5. To set the selected host for Hoteling, click Add.

NOTE 1:  A read-only Host Association Limit field appears above the Limit Association to check box after each host is associated.  This provides the timeout limit of the currently selected host.  If the current association is removed, the timeout limit information is cleared.
