Making Calls

To place a call, select the Dialpad icon from the menu bar, enter the phone number you wish to dial, then press the Dial icon.

Transferring Calls

While you're in an active call, you can transfer the other party to another PBX extension or external number.

To do so, press either the Transfer or Att Transfer button.

  • Transfer: Conducts a blind transfer, that will send the call directly to the destination party
  • Att Transfer: Conducts a warm transfer, connecting you to the destination party to introduce the call before putting the caller through

If you're performing an attended transfer, you will connect to the target party and can either press Transfer to pass the call to them, or Cancel to return to the original caller.


Conferencing A Call
