Answer a Call Within Your Hunt Group


Hunt groups, also known as line groups, allow organizations that receive many incoming calls to share the call load. Your administrator sets up a hunt group with a series of directory numbers. Phones ring based on the hunt sequence that your administrator specifies for a hunt group. If you are a member of a hunt group, you sign in to a hunt group when you want to receive calls. You sign out of the group when you want to prevent calls from ringing on your phone.

Before You Begin  

You must be signed into the hunt group to receive hunt group calls.

When a hunt group call rings on your phone, answer the call.
