What is Call Blasting? How does it work?

Call Blasting is what we call Simultaneous Call Forwarding. If you have more than one call forwarding number on an extension, Call Blasting will ring each line simultaneously to reduce wait times for your callers. Call blasting can support up to 15 different call forwarding destinations. Turning on this feature will add a fee $10/ per month to your bill.

To turn on Call Blasting, go to Settings , then click Features and select Add Call Blasting.

Call Blasting will be automatically turned on on all extensions.

To change this, go to Extensions , click Edit the extension you want to change this setting for, select Options and change ' Simultaneously ' in the ' This extension should call each of my phone numbers ' to in order, just once or indefinitely, until someone picks up.
