Not sure how many users you need on a cloud phone system? Find out how to choose the right number for your setup
A user is generally counted by the number of people you have. So if you have 10 employees, 10 people get access to a phone and can all be on a call at the same time.
Each user is given an extension number e.g. Bob = 01, James = 02, Lucy = 03. Your users have their extension number wherever they access the phone system. So they can take a call on a phone, the mobile app or the desktop app.
