caller id when transferring

Using a yealink phone. Transferring calls using the Transfer option, but receiving party sees caller ID of the extension transferring the call instead of the caller id of the caller.

Would it be possible to include the option to have our customer's caller ID reflect, instead of our extension details? We'd really like to have that option.

On our Polycom phones press-and-HOLD the transfer button makes a big difference in preserving the original caller-id.

How do you do it? Cause my caller id tell everyone it is my IT guy not the customer calling. I wish they would hurry up and get this fixed, when I transfer a call they say hello Steve, and its not Steve. I do not understand why they have not fixed this yet. It seems to be a big issue.

Hello @Jennie Jones Have you corrected the Caller ID settings in your online portal? I see that you contacted Technical Support regarding this. Is it still not working on your end?

No it did not fix it. And it does not seem that it will be. I do not blind transfer so I don't know I give up.

We don't want to leave you hanging. I suggest contacting Technical Support once again so that they can escalate your ticket if it's not resolved.

We are using Polycom phones but would like to have this feature as well. The blind transfer requires additional steps for our receptionist who may be receiving many calls at once and does not have the time to do this for all calls.

Yes as a receptionist this is true...this system is not receptionist friendly.

Hey all, if you have Poly phones, you can change the settings to where all transfers are blind and the caller ID of the original call will show on the other end. Go to settings - basic - preferences - default transfer type - select blind.

To get the Caller ID to transfer, you will want to transfer as a Blind Transfer - not a warm transfer (using the Transfer option).

Use this command: ## Ext * or ## Ext # (Blind Transfer from any phone)
