I am new to RC and am having difficulty completing a basic transfer of calls to various intercom extensions. I have followed the step by step directions in the user guide but when I hit intercom and their extension I get music but it does nothing on their end and the caller is left on hold waiting while I am trying to transfer the call for much longer than necessary. Our phones are set up for default consultative transfer as we prefer. Not blind transfer. Do I need the settings changed or am I not doing something correctly?

What model phones are you using?

I'm going to assume Polycom:

Ø  Depress Transfer Soft Key

Ø  Dial extension number - converse with intended party

Ø  Depress Send Soft Key

Ø  Hang up

In other words, do not use the Intercom key.

Thanks for responding. I hit transfer soft key, dial extension number, automated voice comes on and says wait while I try that extension, then music comes on but its not ringing on the other end. In other words I never get to point where I let them know who's on the line or the ability to depress the Send soft key. Could there be an issue with our settings?
