Hide phone number

As a rule, employee telephone numbers should be visible at NTNU (see about personal data visibility)  Some employees, for example professors who are also physicians at St. Olavs Hospital, may wish to hide their phone number externally, leaving it visible only for colleagues and students via Innsida. 

Here's how:

  1. From Innsida, choose My profile and then the Contact details tab.
  2. Check "Hide externally" beside the number in question

Almost immediatlly, your number will be hidden from from your external profile pages and the employee lists on the external webpages. If you hide your Norwegian mobile or the nummer under Other number, the hidden number will no longer be synced to Skype for Business and Office365.
