Line2 Account Manager: Call Forwarding

What is Call Forwarding?

Call Forwarding controls how Line2 connects your incoming calls to your phone.  You can forward incoming calls based on day or time, or create Caller ID rules that forwards based on the caller's phone number. 
Basic Users can only make changes to their own Call Forwarding.  

Administrator and Power Users have access to log in to any user to make changes to the Call Forwarding.

 

Basic Call Forwarding:

1. First Option: Dial Sequentially:  Your Line2 app  will receive incoming calls in the order of the way you have your numbers listed in Account Manager.

  2. Click Edit
  3.  Choose Dial Sequentially
  4. Click Add Number to List 
  5. Select the number you want to add or click add new number 
  6. Click Save

Helpful Hint: You will want to keep your rings to 5 or less to ensure that all the numbers you have listed in your forwarding list will be activated until a user answers. Keeping your rings to high might lead the call to go to voicemail, considering it being answered by a user.
