Busy office environments offen require employees to be constantly on the move between their desk, meetings, conferences, and attending to clients. When expecting important calls call forwarding can be helpful, but if an employee forgets to turn it off he may end up forwarding a call to an office extension where he is no longer present.
With Simultaneous Ringing, an enhanced mode of call forwarding, an administrator configures a list of forwarding destinations instead of just one number. When a call comes in, all the destinations ring simultaneously in addition to the employee’s regular extension. The employee can answer the call wherever it rings, and the moment he does it stops ringing on the other numbers.
If unanswered, the call will be sent to voicemail after a set number of simultaneous rings.
Simultaneous ringing is one aspect of a feature called Find Me / Follow me. Learn how to set it up here, where you can also see how to have calls ring in a sequence.
