    1. Display Name – the name you would like to display when calling other team members
    2. Extension Number – Your internal extension number which will be used to connect callers to your configured endpoints (cell phone, IP extensions, etc)
    3. Cell Phone Number -Will be used as your initial endpoint
    4. Email Address – the email address where your voicemail will be sent to you as an attachment
