The General Settings tab contains all the important areas that are considered account-wide and making any changes at this level will have a global effect on the account for you and all of your users.
The company name section allows you to change the name of your business within the account. Changing this field will have an effect on the company inbox which carries the same name as the business.
Caller ID Name
Your outbound caller ID is the phone number or name that people see when you call them. We are automatically setting your Caller ID to your Company Name. You can update your Caller ID if needed.
The name that you set will be published to the National Caller ID Name database. Typically, landline carriers subscribe to the National Caller ID Name database, so when you call people who use those carriers, they will see the caller ID name that you’ve set.
Note that this setting can take up to 30 days to be included in all landline databases. Generally, this does not affect cell phones. Cell providers use a different system to provide their subscribers with caller ID information.
You can update your business address by making changes to any of the fields. Please keep in mind that the business address zip code is used for tax purposes and making changes to this section may affect your bill.
Set the main time zone for your business as this is used along with the custom business hours you may set to determine when your business is closed or open. Ensure it is correct.
