Caller ID prefixes (sometimes CID prefix or clip) offer a simple way to help tag calls. This tagging is helpful in a few scenarios: when different offices are routed to the same extension, tracking DID call sources, or just trying to keep call destinations more organized.
This guide explains how to add a CID prefix.
