Forward Number When User Disabled

When an employee leaves the company, we disable them in RC and move the number to the number inventory. Some of those disabled users receive a lot of calls, and we do not want customers calling and getting a message that the number is not in use. How can I forward the number to still ring to an IVR menu after the user has been disabled and deleted?

The workaround will be to create a designated user extension where you can reassign the numbers of the deleted extensions instead of putting it in the number directory. Then set up the Call Forwarding Settings of that extension to route on the IVR Menu.

This is a great workaround, thank you for the idea!
