How do I block a phone number from calling in?

To block a caller from calling in you must first locate their customer account in "Customers > Manage". If they do not have a customer account, create a customer account with the said phone number.

Once created, locate the customer linked to the phone number and select the status inactive or blocked.

Tip: You can create a single customer called "Banned" and use the multi-phone number feature within the customer account to add to a list of blocked numbers.

Why can I not add my telephone number?

For our services to work your telephone provider must send us OCN information (Originally Called Number), this is also known as RDNIS (Redirected Dialed Number Information Service). If, when attempting to forward calls to one of our global shared lines, you receive an audio prompt that says "Your telephone provider did not send us the Originally Called Number, please contact your provider to enable this, and try again later.", this means the information is not being sent to us and therefore we can not distinguish where this call originally came from.

In these circumstances, you should call your telephone provider and ask them to enable OCN or RDNIS information on all forwarded calls from your telephone or mobile number.

How do I divert calls to Gazoop from my mobile phone?

Start a phone call on your phone and dial *002*(Gazoop Number)#

For example, in the US you would dial *002*8506845055#

To cancel call forwarding, simply dial #002#

Once you have configured the forwarding once, in the future you can just dial *002# as it will remember the call forwarding number. We strongly recommend adding #002# and *002# as contacts within your phone for quick easy access.

Why does my dispatcher status remain as Away even when changing to Available?

The top status bar is related to your use of our call center technology and VoIP accounts, if you wish to take calls for your fleet using our telephone services you can setup a VoIP account on your PC with a headset and callers information will auto-populate. Until you have a VoIP account setup your status will always remain as Away, it doesn't influence anything else but your accounts ability to accept phone calls.

If you have already set-up your VoIP account and wanting to take calls you need to ensure you go in to "Settings" and select your correct VoIP account you are using, then you can change your status to Available.

I already have a VoIP system/provider, how do I integrate it with Gazoop?

If you would like to take advantage of the Caller Line Identity (CLI) Pop-up's, the booking call recordings, or the Gazoop Dispatcher Answering Service, but already have a VoIP provider you want to use to patch across calls or receive calls through, here are some instructions on how to do this.

Step 1 - Send Calls from your VoIP to Gazoop
In order to forward your calls to Gazoop you will need to point your VoIP number to our system by using either a phone number (dedicated or shared), or a SIP address we provide. If your VoIP provider supports RDNIS, you can use our Free Call Forwarding numbers, otherwise, you may need to purchase a dedicated phone number from us. If your VoIP provider supports passing calls via SIP then you should create a dedicated SIP address to set your phone number to point to. You can choose an option, or order a phone number by going to "Call Center" > "Phone Numbers" 

Step 2 - Receive calls from Gazoop to your VoIP
You have two options for receiving calls from Gazoop to your internal dispatchers. One method, the easiest, is by using the plain old telephone system and entering your dispatchers telephone number and we will call you directly and patch the call. Of course, this does cost per minute for the outbound call, and if you already have a VoIP system in place, this may not be ideal. A free solution is to send calls from Gazoop back to your VoIP account which incurs no outbound minute charge. To do this you must obtain a public SIP URI for your VoIP account. This is usually in the format of:
If you have an Asterisk system, simply ensure you have allowguest=yes and ensure the "myusername" is set to something complex in your dialplan for security reasons, and send all other calls to hangup. If you are using a third party hosted solution, you should reach out to them and ask for a Public SIP URI to receive anonymous calls from the internet for your VoIP account/telephone. You can also link them to this page. 
Once you have this SIP URI (looks similar to an email address), login to the dispatchers account and click "Settings" at the top of the screen, then click "IP URI" and enter your complete SIP URI in the field "New SIP URI" and hit the blue Change button once completed, as shown below.

Once complete, go back and hit the green "Start Taking Calls", when calls arrive your dispatchers will see the following tools:
