Setting up a Directory Handler

Answered Question
Jan 22nd, 2009

I am trying to setup the Directory Handler in Unity 5. Using the default pre-built handler, when I dial in I get the greeting and press 4 to search by name. I put in the name and it finds a match, but it does not route the call to the phone, it goes straight to that subscriber's mailbox. What might the problem be?

Steve,


Check the Subscriber Template, then Call Transfer, then under 'Transfer Incoming Calls to Subscriber's Phone'. Make sure the option that says 'Yes, Ring Subscriber's Extension' is selected.


Transfer options apply to indirect calls, such as the one via the Directory Handler, so the configuration of the Transfer settings on the subscriber or template may be the cause of what you are seeing.


Hope this helps.


Regards,

Michael.
