UniSA is transitioning extension in stages - Unit by Unit. This means that some extension are still in the NEC system and others are in Webex.

While both systems are running, if an NEC phone is used to call an extension (5 digits e.g. 25000), which has already been transitioned to Webex, the backend diverts the call externally to the full 8 digits (83025000), which then transfers the call to the extension in Webex. It is the process between the diversion and transfer that causes the system to display that you are calling yourself.

Until all extensions are transferred to Webex the only way around this is for the caller to dial the full 8 digits.
