I have a department doing working from home that is set up as follows:
EXT: 300 (ring group)
| 301 (IP set at home)
| 302 (IP set at home)
| 303 (IP set at home)
| 304 (IP set at home)
| 305 (IP set at home)
I am trying to arrange things so that if somebody at home wants to step away from their desk they can forward their at-home line to their cell phone, then cancel it as they see fit.
So far, though, I haven’t found a way to make this work with calls coming in through the ring group - it is easy enough to forward calls that were placed directly to x303 to cell, but I haven’t found a way for a call to 300 to be forwarded. Any call forwarding options set on the phone are apparently simply ignored when coming from a ring group call and neither that extension nor the cell will ring.
Is there any way to make this work?
