How to create and assign Allowable CallerID (ANI) Lists for employees to use when making outbound calls


Allowable CallerID (ANI) Lists are lists of phone numbers that employees are allowed to select when making outbound calls.  A CallerID (or ANI) is the number shown to the person you are calling. By creating and assigning Allowable CallerID (ANI) Lists, you control what phone numbers your employees are available to select.

Example: You may have multiple departments, business units, or brands. When placing an outbound call, a single salesperson may want to call from brand A or brand B, etc.

  • Log into your Spoke Phone account portal
