    Hi All,

    I'm looking to see if its possible to do the following:

    We have 8 DDI's from our provider, which all ring to our reception, I want to have 1 of these numbers allocated to our sister company and when someone rings that exact number it also rings to our receptionist but is displays the name of our sister company on the handset which is a Yealink T28p, so she knows how to answer the phone. is this possible?

    Thanks

    Run the DID's (assigned to each company) through a different ring group, and use the append ring group name option. The name you've assigned to that ring group should show up on the display.

    Hi Leejor,

    thanks for your help, If I go to Add Ring Group , do I choose Priotized Hunt or Ring All? I have the option to add the internal extensions to a ring group but not the DDI's?

    Thanks again

    You route the DID's to a ring group then you put the extensions that are going to answer the calls, in , as members of the ring group. If there is more than one member, then you probably want all of then to ring at the same time to allow the first person able to answer, to take the call. It depends on your particular set-up.
