Dynamic Caller ID Rules
Updated over a week ago

The Dynamic Caller ID feature is used for changing or hiding your caller ID during outbound calls based on the previously set rules.

For example, you are calling to the US from the UK and want to appear as calling from the US. If you have set up an automated rule for this, your caller ID will change to the US phone number you have specified in the rule.

All dynamic rules you have created are displayed in the VoIP Services section, on the Dynamic Caller ID tab.

EXAMPLE 1
You want to create a dynamic Caller ID rule for multiple phone numbers being selected randomly.
You need to create multiple rules on the Dynamic Caller ID page with the same logic for different numbers.
Activate the rules for the relevant SIP account on the Caller ID tab.
In this example, we will create it for phone numbers 441632960393 and 441632960395.
Rule 1: In Apply Rule for select All Calls, in Caller ID Type select Specific Caller ID and 441632960393
Rule 2: In Apply Rule for select All Calls, in Caller ID Type select Specific Caller ID and 441632960395

This will create dynamic Caller ID rules to pick one of the specific numbers (441632960393 and 4416329603935) when calling from that SIP account to all destinations.

EXAMPLE 2
You want to set a German DID number for outgoing calls to Germany.
In Call to specific country, you should select the country prefix for Germany (+49).
Under Set Caller ID Number to (E.164 Format): enter the German DID number you will use as your Caller ID for outgoing calls to Germany (e.g., +493012345678).
