AT&T IP Flexible Reach Customer Portal: Enterprise Administrator Support

Call Forwarding - Busy


The Call Forwarding – Busy feature enables a user to redirect an incoming call to another number when it encounters a busy condition. The line is considered to be busy when too many active calls come through at once or when Call Acceptance or Call Rejection is in use.


Call Forwarding – Busy settings are superseded by Call Forwarding – Selective Call Acceptance, and Call Rejection (if their selective criteria are set).


Note: If enabled, the Intercept Announcement feature takes precedence over all other active features. For details, see Intercept Announcement.


Forwarded callers are treated according to the Forward Calls to phone number's settings. For example, if the forwarded call isn't answered, callers may be prompted to leave voicemail for the forwarded phone number, not for the first phone number.
