Our executives have call screening turned on with their extension, however when someone calls from within our office (from another ring central phone) it screens that call also. We only want calls screen that are outside of the company phone system.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled User Settings: disable Screening for internal transfer.

With call screening enabled, when I transfer a call to a user, I need to state my name (or the callers name). I only want calls from outside that end up at an extension to have to state their name. When I answer a call on the main number and then transfer to another user I don't want to have to state my or the caller's name. It takes too long - I want to connect and then get back to work. I have selected under call screening "if caller not in contact list" and since we are all in this company when I hit transfer I was thinking I should be considered in the contact list? But that is not what is happening.
