Caller ID on outbound calls shows as Anonymous or restricted despite caller ID being set to a specific telephone number in 8x8 Admin Console and Work for Desktop.

Applies To

  • Work for Desktop

  1. Toggling caller ID settings
  2. If the issue still persists after toggling caller ID, please contact support with 3-4 call examples in the following format.
  • Date:
  • Time:
  • Time zone:

Toggling the caller ID often can sometimes cause the outbound Caller ID to 'stuck' in the system.
