Contacts: Use the search bar at the top to either search a name or to type in the number you wish to dial.

  • When searching by name, if you see a green dial icon, you can tap/click that icon to dial.
  • You can also type in the number you wish to dial into the search bar.  This can be a USI extension if you are calling someone in-house, or if dialing an outside line, remember to place an "8" or an "8+1" in front of the number. Jabber works as if you are sitting at your office telephone.
