  1. Activated device

By default, only IP Phone is activated. If you want the user to use bizphone app on mobile or desktop, click Activate.

  1. Incoming call device

If an extension is not mapped to a SIP gateway, it can receive incoming calls through IP phone, Mobile app and Desktop app, or even forward the calls to other destinations.

If it is mapped to a SIP gateway, all incoming calls will be directed to the sip account. Find out more on SIP gateway.

The devices should be activated to receive incoming calls.

Call forwarding

  • Incoming calls can be forwarded to phone numbers or extensions.
  • When call forwarding is enabled, you will not receive calls on any devices although they are activated.
  • VIP list: numbers in this list will not be forwarded; they ring the extension directly.
    • Example use case: a CEO (ext 100) does not want to receive any calls except from his Assistants (101 and 102) and the counterparts (e.g. 65xx01, 65xx02, ..., 65xx10).
    • Settings:
      • Turn on Call forwarding
      • Turn on To extensions: add the extensions of 2 assistants (101, 102) to forward all the calls to them.
      • Turn on VIP list: add the extension keys of 2 assistants (101,102) and phone numbers of the counterparts (65xx01, 65xx02, ..., 65xx10).
