Move Phone to Jive

Dartmouth is moving its phone service to Jive - a cloud-based telephone provider. We will be replacing all phones - desk, conference, lobby, classroom - as part of this project. 

The new service provides several different ways in which you can access your phone:

  • A physical desk phone;
  • The GoToConnect Mobile app on your smartphone (iOS or Android);
  • The GoToConnect Desktop application on your computer;
  • The my.jive.com web site;
  • Or any combination of these.

The software-based phones (GoToConnect Mobile and GoToConnect Desktop) offer functionality that the physical desk phones do not provide. This includes:

  • Location Flexibility - your office phone is mobile so you can make/receive calls anywhere;
  • Text Messaging - send text messages from your Dartmouth phone number;
  • Dartmouth Directory Integration - call or text someone using their name rather than searching for their phone number;
  • Real-Time Visibility - know when the person you're calling is not on another call; 
  • Reclaim Desk Space - free up space on your desk;
  • Separate Personal from Work - give people you're working with your Dartmouth number to call, so when your call phone rings, you know whether it's someone calling your personal number or your work number.
