How to forward NACC phone(This can only be done from on-campus) otherwise, email to request help.

If you want to forward your office phone to another phone like a cell phone, home phone, or a phone at another location, use a Call Rule. (This is only accessible from on-campus)

  1. Using the Switchvox web-based client, login in with your extension and voice mail password and then click on Features and then Call Rules.
  2. Once in Call Rules, click on Create Call Rule Set in the upper left hand corner and name it Call Forwarding to xxx. It is most common to forward calls to your cell phone. Leave the Rule Set Time Frame and Rule Set Status with their default settings and then click on Save Call Rule Set.
  3. Next, click on the pencil icon under Actions for the new call rule.
  4. Then, click on Create Action in the upper left hand corner.
  5. Then, click on Call Cascade and select the type of call, Direct Calls, Number to forward to, and be sure to include the number "9", and then enter the phone number as you would normally dial it.
  6. Then, select how many rings you want your office phone to ring before the calls get forwarded, and change Attempt to preserve Caller ID to "Yes".
  7. Call rules work from the top down so set this new rule as the first one when you want to use it or you can also keep it as the first one and disable it when you do not want to use it. Just click on the Disable icon (the red circle with a line through it.)

Important! Be sure to test to verify your new call rule is working as desired and make any changes as needed. If you need additional help, email

Set These Up to Prepare to Work Remotely

Virtual Private Network (VPN)

Administrators and pertinent staff can be given access to the Virtual Private Network (VPN) service for connecting to the NACC network from remote locations. NACC’s VPN enables campus users to send and receive data across a public network as if their device is directly connected to the campus network. Besides being required to access some sites, it is recommended for accessing campus resources from public networks.

Cisco AnyConnect software is available by emailing a request to Patricia Falk, Technology Director at
