Dear NGL Team Members,

Thank you for everything you are doing during this uncertain time. We understand there is a lot happening and things are rapidly changing as we continue to monitor the coronavirus situation. We are here for you. Please let us know what we can do to help in any way.

If you are working from home, we put together the below resources to help make it an easier transition. Working from home will be a new experience for many of you, it’s important to remain social and stay in contact with your team and your manager. If you are in one of the key positions that still need to come into the office, we are committed to creating a safe space for you. Your health is important, if you become ill or test positive with coronavirus, please let your manager know.

If you have any suggestions, questions or concerns about coronavirus, please click here to submit them. We will do our best to respond as quickly as possible with the information we know at the time. Based on the concerns you submitted on Friday, we are reviewing time and attendance policies and discussing ways to update them to help make NGL one of the most preferred workplaces in Madison.

We are here for you; thank you for all you do. We are taking this seriously and we are committed to doing our part to keep everyone safe and reducing stress. We will get through this together, and we will be stronger.

Thank you!

FAQs and Troubleshooting

  • If you need to call 911 for any reason, do not call from your softphone – use your personal cell phone. Calling from the softphone will show your location as being at NGL.

  • Test your Softphone before leaving NGL to make sure setup was done correctly.
    • Headsets need to be plugged into your PC prior to launching/testing the Softphone application. If they are not, the application will give several error messages and not let you continue.
    • Plug in the phone and hit test on each of the audio prompts that pop up.
  • During Softphone setup, in the section that asks you to enter an extension, you must enter your personal DID extension, NOT your ACW one.
  • Extra long ethernet cables are available on 5th floor near Accounting.
  • Login order at home should be:
    • Launch VPN
    • Launch Softphone (if applicable)
    • Launch further programs as needed
  • Leave your machine powered on or restart when you are finished working for the day, just like when you work inside the building. 
  • Just like your work phone, you have to dial 9 to call out from your soft phone.
