I have a client whose call flow is as follows:
Main number -> Floating Extension (for day/night toggle) -> Auto Attendant -> Option 0 for Operator -> Hunt Group 1 -> Hunt Group 2 -> General Voicemail
x501 - Hunt Group 1 - currently only contains the main Receptionist, rolls to x502
x502 - Hunt Group 2 - currently only contains the "backup" receptionist(s), rolls to GDM
I created it this way so the client could add additional backup receptionists as seasonal call volume ebbs and flows. The only problem is when the main receptionist goes to lunch. Call Forward behavior of an ephone-dn in a hunt group is ignored so the receptionist is unable to forward her calls (arriving as a result of the Auto-Attendant) to a backup receptionist when she's away from her desk. I thought the HLog softkey would allow her to remove herself from the hunt group but it's greyed/inactive out on her phone so either I'm missing something or that option is out as well.
How are other companies with SBCS covering their main DIDs? What's the best way to allow the main receptionist to temporarily remove herself from this call flow? My company is only a Select partner so unfortunately any proposed solutions must be configurable via CCA...
Dennis, honestly I haven't checked other phones as this user is the only one who needs to be able to log out of her hunt group! Is there any chance the SBCS won't "let" her log out of the HG since she's the only one in it?
In order to logout of the hunt group does the user need to do anything other than press the HLog softkey while the phone is idle?
