This function is used by users who have Teams installed on their smartphone, for example.

  2. After a short time, the call you are participating in from another device will be displayed above.

Putting through a call

Dealing with emergency numbers

Since you have now become a "normadic" subscriber with Teams telephony, your calls from Teams to the police, fire department or other emergency numbers are transferred directly to the external emergency call centers. At Irchel, for example, such calls from teams no longer go to the Irchel service center, but directly to the external emergency call centers, which has cost consequences in the case of false alarms. For emergency alerts within UZH, use the corresponding function in the app "UZH now" or your cell phone so that location information can be transmitted.

The UZH Service Centers can also be reached from teams via the following numbers

Service Center Irchel: 54141

Service Center Zentrum: 44444

For calls to external numbers, it is no longer necessary to pre-dial "0".
