Using Web Console Contacts

Use the VMP Web Console Contacts view to initiate a communication with a contact.

The Email option is available only for users, and is available only if the VMP Server administrator has allowed email communication. Only messages can be sent to group contacts.

  1. Log on to the VMP Web Console from your Web browser.
  2. Click the Contacts icon to display the Contacts view.
  3. Toggle between Favorites or Contacts at the top of the Contacts pane.
    Tip: Start typing the contact name in the search box to quickly find a user, group, or Distribution List. For details on using Favorites, see Using Web Console Favorites.

    Select a Contact to display it:

  4. If a contact is a Vocera Voice Group, the group may contain subgroups. Click the subgroup you want to view. When viewing a subgroup, click to return to the parent Voice Group.
  5. When you have found the Contact, select Call, Urgent Call, or Text to communicate with the Contact.
    Note: The Call and Urgent Call operations are initiated on your client application (VCS client or Vocera badge).
