This article aims to guide Users in setting up their extension's Call Forwarding settings for Business hours in the Rainbow Office online account.

Users and Administrators can configure where to receive incoming calls on the Rainbow Office online account. Calls can be forwarded to multiple endpoints where you want to answer them. Extensions can forward incoming calls to their Desktop & Mobile App, Deskphone, or a third party phone number.

How to setup call handling and forwarding for business hours

1. Log in to the Rainbow Office online account

2. Go to the user extension settings. Follow the steps below depending on your access profile

Admin - Go to the Admin Profile > User > User List > Users with Extensions, then select the user extension to modify

User - Go to Settings

3. Click Call Handling & Forwarding

4. Choose where you want calls to be forwarded to. Enter forwarding numbers on appropriate fields:

Deskphone

Third-party number

Another user's phone

5. Set the number of rings for each phone and forwarding number on the list. 1 Ring is equal to 5 seconds

 

6. Select the order or sequence of your call forwarding numbers

Select Simultaneously if you prefer the call to ring on all forwarded phones at the same time. Because of different networks, ringing to some devices, such as mobile devices may be delayed

Select Sequentially if you prefer the call to ring on forwarded phones in sequential order. Arrange the forwarding order by dragging up or down
