Default Location
The default location is the location assigned to a new user. In SwyxWare Administration, it has a different icon compared to the other locations. If you want to assign all other new users a different location as default, then, in the properties of the new default location, select the option "Set this Location as the default Location" ( The “General” Tab).
How to create a new location
1 Start SwyxWare Administration.
2 Click "Locations" with the right mouse button to open the context menu.
3 Select "Add location..."
The wizard for adding a location will open.
4 Location name:
Enter the name of the location and, if applicable, a brief description. The name must be unambiguous within SwyxWare.
If you would like the location you are creating to be used as the default for all users and trunk groups subsequently set up, activate the "Set this Location as the Default Location" checkbox.

5 Codes and prefixes for the location
The following parameters specify how numbers dialed by a user (or trunk group) of this location are to be interpreted by SwyxWare.
A user has the location Dortmund (codes 49, 231, prefixes 00, 0, public line access prefix 0). This user now dials 0456789. SwyxWare interprets the first 0 as the public line access prefix and the number sequence 456789 as a local number. This results in the canonical number +49231 456789.
Own country code
Here you define your country code. For Germany, it is '49'.
Own area code
Enter your area code here without the preceding '0', for example, '231' for Dortmund or '40' for Hamburg. For Dortmund e.g. '231' or '40' for Hamburg.
Prefix for international calls
The code for international calls is entered in this field. In Germany, this code is '00'.
Prefix for long distance calls
Here you enter the digit(s) which must be dialed in order to make a long distance call. In Germany, the digit required for long distance calls is always '0'.

6 Private Branch Exchange related Properties:
Public Line Access
This is the number that SwyxWare users must first dial in order to make external calls. Default value: '0'.
You are able to enter several Public Line Accesses separated by a semicolon, e.g. to differentiate private and business calls using a different Public Line Access.
Route undeliverable calls to Internal Number:
If a call is directed to a number, which is within the number range of SwyxServer but has not been assigned to a user, this call will be forwarded to the number listed here. You can enter the number directly or select it from the list of SwyxWare numbers. It can also be a number of a connected SwyxServer.

7 Time zone:
Select the time zone this location is assigned to. The time zone is required for evaluating time-dependent restrictions, for example for routing.
A Trunk Group (e.g. ISDN, Location Germany) is enabled only from 6p.m. to 8p.m. If an user in England now calls at 7:15p.m. local time a number in Germany (German local time 8:15p.m.), the ISDN Trunk Group is disabled for this call.
