Linfield has adopted Zoom as the primary provider for phone service on the Portland and McMinnville campuses.  Zoom Phone was launched in Portland at the start of the Spring 2021 term.  Zoom phone will be introduced to the McMinnville campus by July 1, 2021.  Zoom Phone provides flexibility for staff and faculty.  The service allows for traditional phones and extends the phone experience into the Zoom App.  Users can now answer phones while away from the office.   


  • Mac Campus – 4-digit dialing will not work across our older Nortel Phone system and Zoom Phone.  To reach someone during the transition please dial the full 503-883+ extension. 
  • Users will no longer use the 33+extenstion and you won't need to dial 91+number to dial out. 



There are three places to configure your phone experience.   
  1. – The web portal allows you to configure the overall settings for your account.   
  2. Zoom App - There are settings in the Zoom App (requires you to download the Zoom app). 
  3. Yealink Phones – If you have a physical phone it will be the Yealink phone.  There are settings on the physical phone.  In this document we will go over some of the basics for each of these settings.   


The first thing you will need to do is complete the setup on your account via the Zoom website.   

  • Open a web browser (Chrome, Edge, or Firefox).   
  • Visit and click on “sign in”.
  • Click on the “Phone” tab in the left-hand navigation. You will need to confirm your PIN code for your voicemail and then click on “setup”.
  • You should now see the information for your Zoom Phone account.
