This service forwards calls to other extensions depending on the extension response/status. For example, calls can be forwarded to other extensions (local/remote) or voice boxes unconditionally, or only if the extension is busy, nobody answers the call, or the line is unavailable.
If none of the destinations answer, the call is directed to the extension’s voicemail.
To enable, dial *71 + Destination
To disable, dial *72
Destination can be another extension on your system or an external number. When entering an external number use the full 11 digit telephone number of the destination.
Note: Dialing *71 alone will use the same destination that had been previously set.
To record an IVR greeting:
Dial *301 from your extension and speak into the microphone after the tone.
You will need to press # to finish recording, then a voice menu will be played with three available options:
