Caller ID modification hierarchy for normal calls

A normal call is any outbound call that is not an emergency call, as defined by the regional emergency number settings.

The following table displays the caller ID modification options available on normal calls from the highest priority (1) to the lowest priority (6).

For example, if you configure the caller ID settings using the direct inward dialing (DID) number mapping (priority 2) and the Caller ID modification (priority 4), the FortiVoice unit displays the caller ID configured using the DID number mapping because this setting has a higher priority.
