Call Forwarding (Call Redirection)
With our business phone system, your clients can always reach out to you. CloudTalk allows you to automatically forward your incoming calls to external mobile or landline phone numbers each time your agents are busy or unavailable during business hours.
Included in our business phone system solution, CloudTalk’s Call Forwarding (Call Redirection) feature ensures that all of your company’s incoming calls are taken care of, even when a specific agent is busy or unavailable.
How does Call Forwarding work?
This feature enables you to route any incoming calls coming to your CloudTalk phone number to any mobile or landline phone number or another call queue.
Here is how the process works:
- A caller dials one of your CloudTalk phone numbers
- The agent or caller queue assigned to that number is unable to answer the call (all agents are busy or unavailable at that time)
- The customer’s call is forwarded to another phone number of your choice — for example to the external phone number, another caller queue, etc.
A common scenario is using Call Forwarding during a lunch break or modified business hours, which can be configured for each of your phone numbers individually.
There are 2 ways to set up and utilize this feature:
- Automatically - The feature automatically redirects your calls in specific conditions with Call Flow Designer in the CloudTalk dashboard.
- Manually - Any agent can redirect the call to the external mobile or landline phone number directly in the CloudTalk phone app. If used internally, this means that the agent is forwarding a call to another agent or call group and that he/she can use Warm Transfer.
Warm Transfer allows you to easily transfer callers over to another agent, with the option of speaking with them first.
