Call forwarding for main company line

I need to forward all calls to my main company line during a specific time frame (9PM - 3AM).  I'm trying to figure out how to set it up so that when someone calls my number during that time period, the call is automatically forwarded to the number I specify (a non ring central extension number, I need to route the call to a cell phone) where someone can take the call.

I see this works for "call queues".  However I'm not currently using call queues.  Really just need to forward all incoming calls to my main company phone number (not a specific extension) to an outside line (cell phone)

It's the same process for the main number.

I think I figured it out.  I essentially just created a "fake" extension that has the settings to forward all calls to the cell number.  Then set a rule up to forward all after hours calls to that extension, which in theory should then forward to the cell phone.

I didn't see any options in the rules that would allow forwarding to an outside line, just forward options for extensions.

Hey Joe, that works too.  It also gives you the added benefit to track how many calls.  However, I like the Advanced rules option better.  But in any case, "unconditional forwarding" is the field you use for forwarding to an outside line.
