Navigating Around an Account
When signing into the CMV Clarity Platform, administrators are automatically routed to the Home page for their account. At the top of Home, you will find the account address and account technical information. This information is usually input when the account is created and does not need to be edited on a regular basis. In addition to account information, the E911 data is also displayed. It is important to regularly review the E911 information to ensure that it is current and correct.

When someone dials 911, this routes call-to-service and then to the correct 911. All NADP (North America Dialing Plan) phone numbers must have E911 set up to be in compliance with United States law. If E911 is not set up properly, outbound dialing is BLOCKED until the E911 setup is completed.
Note: Please seek the advice of the support team if you are not sure which method is appropriate for the account.
There are 3 types of E911 methods that an account can be configured for. They are E911 by:
- Device: Best used when an account has multiple devices residing at different locations, and/or the account uses many different outbound CallerID’s. (This section will only appear if the account is set to E911 by Device).
- Single DID: Best used when all devices on an account have the same physical address and show one number on the outbound.
- CallerID/SipTrunk: Best used when an account needs to show multiple CallerIDs. The reasons for this vary.

To update E911 Method from the Home Page:
