Test your Knowledge

At the end of this module, you will be familiar with the time schedules that can be configured in 3CX and how the routing is performed based on the time of the day.

Check how ready you are to take the test:

Q. When a public holiday is configured in 3CX, and the holiday is now active, will the PBX follow the Out of Office hours routing if the “Play holiday prompt when it’s a global holiday” option is selected?

Q. Is it possible to have multiple opening and closing times defined per day on an Inbound Rule?
