    Hi asfuture,

    Tried that, but no luck. queue or group still ringing, but no forward of those to 103.
    Configured line 103 to always forward to 777777. When checking connection it is "red"unconnected since no unit is really on.

    Looks like a standard on some pbx's, that extensions attached to group or queue that doesnt answer should not be forwarded, unless trying to reach those direct without calling thru queue or group.

    Any way around ?

    The way 3cx queues work, you have to meet 3 conditions (I'm not a programmer, so I might be mistaken, but experience with the software is extensive):
    1) Queue member must be logged in to queue, either via the CTI program or the Admin panel.
    2) Queue member must be listed as "Available," again either via CTA or Admin panel.
    3) Queue member must be a registered extension and not busy. If busy detection is set to "Use PBX status" and the person is on another call, call waiting will not ring through.

    An unconditional forward on a dummy extension will not ring the forward-to number if the call originates from the queues.

    For a work-around, I'd suggest getting some kind of softphone software for your mobile phone (if the forward-to number is a mobile) or using a 3cx bridge, external extension, or extension-over-VPN to get that number in your queues.
