This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Move a fax number to a direct dial, and convert previous direct dial number to a company number

When customers call our location they can contact us two ways.
1. Dial our main company number (auto receptionist) and hit #5, then it goes to an IVR Menu with our various departments at our location.
2. Dial our direct dial that rings our receptionist phone which is setup to ring as part of a call que to forward to a few offices at the same time.

Is there a way to have the direct dial calls go to the IVR menu as well?

Are you looking to have the "direct dial" ring to the IVR and the receptionist?

That's half correct. When they call 412-281-2234 (which is the receptionist direct dial), i want it to go to the IVR and the caller to select what department they want. Selecting 1 would then ring the call que (which the receptionist is part of).

You'd have assign a new number for the user "Receptionist" and take her old number and move it to a company number.  Then you could forward via rules.

Hmmmm. Okay. Is there a way to remove her old number, assign it as a company number, and NOT assign her a new direct dial number. She doesn't need a direct dial number. She only takes calls from her extension, or through the IVR.

She has to have a phone number if she has a phone.  Even though she has an extension number, how calls ring at her phone, is via the 10-digit phone number.

Hi again. We have a 10 digit number that was an old fax number we no longer use. We can transfer that to the receptionist line, and make the 2234 number a company line. Is that possible? and if so, how do we do that?

Thanks for your help. It has been a tremendous asset.

Sorry should say, that the fax number is currently assigned to a user - in addition to their 10 digit number.
