Call Transfer (to a Contact/to a Held Call)


Types of Call Transfer


You can transfer a call on the Yealink DECT W56P to a different contact/number or to an existing call on hold.


There are three types of call transfer:


  • Blind Transfer: Transfer a call directly to another party without consulting.

  • Semi-Attended Transfer: Transfer a call when the target phone is ringing.

  • Attended Transfer: Transfer a call with prior consulting.

Another transfer method, using a Telebroad system dial code, allows you to transfer a call directly to a voicemail of your choice.
