Hot desking originates from the definition of being the temporary physical occupant of a work station or surface by a particular employee. A primary motivation for hot desking is cost reduction. This feature is regularly used in places where not all the employees are in the office at the same time, or not in the office for very long at all, which means actual personal offices would be often vacant, consuming valuable space and resources.
You can use hot desking on the Yealink IP phone to log out of the existing accounts and then log into a new account, that is, many users can share the phone resource in
different time. To use this feature, you need to configure a hot desking key in advance.
