Create departments and hunt groups

Call Forwarding is useful in any situation where incoming calls are being routed to more than one phone. You can customize it to be as simple as forwarding calls to a single user or forwarding calls to several different groups.

A common use for Call Forwarding is to route callers to different departments. For example, callers might first hear a phone menu when they dial your business number, and from there have the option to speak to various departments. Based on their selection, you can set up Call Forwarding rules to route the caller to employees in that department.

Let’s say the caller has a sales question. You can add all your salespeople to the Call Forwarding list, and send calls to their desk and mobile phones. You can play hold music while the caller is being connected, and enable settings like Call Screening and Call Recording, which are all included as part of your Telzio service.
