Call Forwarding is much easier to set-up and is more reliable than most VoIP systems because it is applied straight to the user.
To set-up Call Forwarding:
- On your Smart PBX dashboard, click on Users.
- Go to the User Features of your chosen User.
- Click on Call Forwarding to enable it.
- You can now add the number the call will be forwarded. Please note that you can choose to leave voicemails on forwarded numbers, strictly forward direct calls only and to keep your caller-ID. Save changes if you have set your preference.
