Sometimes it is necessary for a call to be delivered to several extensions at once. With the Huntgroup function, you can easily configure a call distribution scheme such that incoming calls are simultaneously delivered to one or more assigned extensions.
Branch office hunt groups can only be added, deleted or modified on the main office self-care interface.
To add a new huntgroup:
Click the Add Huntgroup button and enter the following information:
Huntgroup Number – The number the end user must dial on his phone to reach one or more assigned extensions.
Huntgroup Name – Logical name for this group of extensions, e.g. “Sales.”
Hunt Sequence – Specifies the order for delivering a call to one or more extensions.
If Order is chosen, extensions will be called one by one from the first (topmost) to the last number until the call is answered.
Choose Random if you want to use a random order.
Simultaneous enables simultaneous calls to every extension from the list.
If you choose Least Used: This sorts the phone lines in descending order beginning with their last usage, and delivers a call to their extensions, accordingly. (For example, phone line 777111 with extension 111 was last used on 2010-12-11, and phone line 777222 with extension 222 was last used on 2010-12-12, so the call goes to extension 111 and if it is not answered, it goes to extension 222.)
Set to name and CLI of the huntgroup
Replace Caller Info with Huntgroup Name, keep Caller CLI
Call Pickup Allowed – Enable this option to allow extensions to pick up calls made to the members of this huntgroup.
To specify one or several extensions that calls should be delivered to, click the Configure icon and perform required configuration on the Edit Huntgroup page.
