Transfer Calls Using your Desk Phone

Call transfers allow you to relocate an existing call to another extension using 3CXPhone or directly from your IP phone. A call transfer is either attended or unattended.

If a transfer is attended, the desired party is notified about the transfer. This is done by first putting the caller on hold. Whilst the caller is hearing the on hold music, the extension number to which he/she will be transferred to is dialed; the desired party is then notified about the impending transfer and the call is then transferred, should the caller choose to accept it.

Otherwise, during a blind transfer, the call is transferred without any notifications to the desired party or providing the option to accept or decline the transfer.

This guide will walk you through transferring calls using the 3CX supported IP desk phones, snom, Yealink and Cisco. Calls can also be transferred using 3CXPhone for Windows which is explained in the transferring calls section of the user manual, which can be found here.
