This article provides information about Rainbow Office's Park Locations feature.

The Call park feature allows a User to put a call on hold on a Park Location and continue the conversation from another device.

What is Park Locations

Park Locations is a feature that works on the Rainbow Office Phone desktop and mobile applications, and on deskphones that support Presence. It allows a specific group of people to park a call in a private location that only specific individuals can pick up. To be able to do this, they must be added as authorized members of a specific Park Location Group.

Account Administrators can set up Park Locations by adding a Park Location Group on the Rainbow Office online account. Presence should then be set up on extensions authorized to use the Park Locations.

Use Case

A CEO's executive assistant answers a call on behalf of the CEO, who is on another call. The Executive Assistant parks the call on a specified Park Location. The CEO then picks up the call on his phone.

How to Access Park Locations

Administrators should log in to the Rainbow Office online account. In the Admin Portal, go to Phone System > Groups > Park Locations. The list of all Park Location groups will be displayed, showing the status and extensions. From this section, you can enable, disable, or delete a Park Location group from the Operation column.
You can also do the following:
