Avaya Cloud App: Quick Start Guide for macOS

Avaya Cloud is our new virtual phone system for remote work. While this new technology will allow you to text, make video calls and send messages, it will most often be used to place and receive calls from the computer so that our college community can remain in communication while working remotely. Below are some general use guidelines for logging in, placing and handling phone calls and using the Avaya Cloud application on macOS.
