Picking up a call holding on another V410

Hello,

We have a group of 5 reps in my Denver branch. For each, we have set up the appearance and permissions feature. Yet, they are claiming that if one rep puts a call on hold, the others cannot pick it up?? Based on everything I have read, this should work. Are we missing something?

My suggestion is to utilize PARK.

Parking makes it much easier to pick up a call from any other phone.

Parking is a workaround. Can Ring Central look into how to have the lines managed on that line only? For example, when a call is placed on hold on my phone and another user monitors my line, they could pick up the same call from that line. In addition, this could be used for incoming calls for an Executive and their assistant when screening calls instead of having to transfer and/or park the call.

Hi Tracy, could you explain what your call flow looks like?  Are you sending calls to a virtual extension with a ring group?

Picking up calls that are on hold is absolutely available in Ring Central.

There must be something in the call flow preventing this.

Give us more to work with

Thanks

If you look into my line in particular...you can see that I monitor extension 323. If someone calls extension 323 and extension 323 answers and puts them on hold, I cannot pick up that call (and vice versa). If I screen the call for 323 and place them on hold, 323 cannot pick up that line on hold. Instead, I have to transfer the call to them and/or park it on a dedicated line for them.

Am I missing something else?

We have several assistants who monitor several Executives lines (espeically extension 328 and extension 324), so they cannot manage park locations for all of them. Our receptionist (extension 300), for example, answers calls for up to 7 people.

I've asked support this and I don't believe they were able to assist. Also, I'm not sure what you mean when you ask if I am working with a re seller on this, but the answer is no. Is there anything in particular about our call flow that doesn't allow this to happen?

well, I know this works and it has to do with your call flow or some setting in RC.

Have you worked with support on this?

Are you working with a re seller to assist?

you have to make sure under the permissions tab for both extensions are set to "allow (blank extension) to pick up calls", this way you can pick up that extension and that extension can pick up yours, if that's how you'd like it to work. although if you do have the presence space on your phone to spare using parks is much easier.
