We’re back with another Telephone Quick Tip! We’re showing you how to call forward on an Avaya phone system, an essential function if you ever need to step out of the office for an extended period of time, but still want your business calls answered by someone else in the office. Using these instructions you can easily set call forward to any phone extension and easily cancel it when you return.
How To Call Forward on an Avaya Phone
In order for these instructions to work on your business phone, the Avaya system needs to be in basic mode. If your phone is in basic mode you will notice a two digit extension in the corner of the phone screen.
To forward your phone to another extension follow these steps:
- Press the FEATURE button.
- Dial 11.
- Dial the extension of the phone you want your calls forwarded to.
- Pick up the receiver and hang up to set the function.
Your phone will now be forward to the extension you chose to receive calls. If you want to test the function, have someone call your extension to ensure the calls are being forwarded to your coworker’s phone.
How to Cancel Call Forwarding on an Avaya Phone
If you want to stop calls being forwarded to another phone line, follow these quick steps:
- Press the STATUS button.
- Press OFF.
- Your calls should now be returned to your phone extension.
