Transfer from Operator Question

We recently installed a CCM system here. Our receptionist's extension is 8068. When callers call in and she transfers them to a DN, they see the call as coming from her and answer with some goofy comment (when it turns out it's actually a client :-).

Besides being embarassing, this is a bit of a concern because people might not be as likely to answer the call if it's from our receptionist than a client.

How can I make the call appear to come from the source caller ID.

The gateway is a 3845 MGCP. The CCM version is 4.1.3 SR1.

Hi Dave,

Just curious here, does the display change to the Original calling party a few seconds after being answered (after Transfer)? It should change after the Transfer has been completed. In most cases this is more of a User training issue than anything else. You can also ask that your receptionist uses a "Consult Transfer" method and not complete the transfer until speaking with the user and indicating that they have a call for them. At least this will prevent the embarassing comments :(

Hope this helps!
