Telecom Knowledge Base

For the remaining sections: It’s easy to reach the IT service catalog for Telecommunications using www.csulb.edu/telecom in order to browse for the information needed from there, however for the purpose of this document, the specific links have been provided. 

Section 3: Directory Updates 

The on-boarding process for new employees has been enhanced; however it is still a department’s prerogative to assign a particular extension number to a new employee, or a transferred employee. The department may not want to assign a desk set to the employee, but assigning a number can be useful so that the Address Book in Outlook can contain a number for an employee who has no desk set. If a new employee is assigned to a desk set, then updating the directory record is essential for the 911 database.

Section 4: Changing chart fields and speed codes 

When an extension needs to be changed to a new, or different, speed chart and set of chart fields, it is easy to submit the request through Billing Reports and Statements.

Section 5: Setting permissions for telecom reports 

Call Detail reports are distributed to employees each month through email in support of the State Administrative Manual and its directive that personal calls should be reimbursed. Permissions for this report are set by a directory update to make one person the primary user of an extension number. 

1.3 Telephone Call Detail Statement

For summary and management reports, CSLink is used for report distribution with set permissions. Below you’ll see a good example of a division with the ASM who has access to the entire division, and some staff members may have access to all reports within a main department and each DeptID under the main department, while others have access to only one DeptID. If you are uncertain how best to set up permissions, please email ITS-Telecom@csulb.edu  for assistance.

The section for submitting tickets in ITHelp can be reached using www.csulb.edu/telecom. When an employee submits a ticket for a telecommunications service, the ticket will be routed to the ASM if there are fiscal implications. The ASM will receive an email notification and can click the button to approve or deny the request. Prompt action on tickets helps installations and moves stay on schedule!
