Not to be confused with Transferring Calls, Transfer is a feature in your Call Flow that you can use to automate inbound call routing. You’ll want to use Transfer to send calls to one person, or to another Call Flow. Transfer is an alternative for using the Forward feature, which is better for forwarding to Groups.
In this article, you’ll learn about how to use Transfer with your Telzio phone system.
Before you get started, here are a few important definitions to know:
Actions are the features you can use to automate inbound call routing, such as Opening Hours, Phone Menus, Forward, and Voicemail. Actions tell your phone system what to do when someone calls your business.
A Call Flow is like a map of the features you have designed to manage your incoming callers. Call Flows are comprised of Actions to tell your phone system how to handle calls, and look much like flow charts.
