If you have Zoom Phone enabled in your account, you can transfer busy calls. There are three methods of call transfer: warm transfer, blind transfer, and transfer to voice mail.
- When forwarding a call, the caller ID displayed atthe forwarding destination depends on whether the forwarding destination is an extension number or an outside number.
- If your administrator has enabled automatic recording, or you have started recording a call, select the transfer option to end the recording. This applies when forwarding to external or internal contacts. If you select Warm Transfer , you can resume recording and record the part before the transfer is complete.
