Forwarding to external phone number

I emailed RingCentral support and asked this question:

On "Call Queues" > "Call Handling & Members" > "Wait Settings" > "When maximum wait time is reached, send caller to", my only option is Voicemail. Is there a way I could change that to Forward to an external phone number instead?

Their reply was that the feature I want is currently not available. Does anyone know of another way to accomplish what I'm trying to do?

I 2nd this request. If all of my callers are on a call, I want to be able to route the call to an outside Answering service we use rather than sending to voicemail.

I can see a reference for call forwarding to external numbers here:

https://developers.ringcentral.com/guide/account/call-forwarding-flipping

Check if you can do it through your own application using SDK programming :

Hope that help
