Caller id swap the name on the extension

Answered Question
Feb 9th, 2009

I got setup that customers call at a branch offices from different city and after 6:00 pm it is being forward to the head office.

It is possible that when customer forward to the head office, the caller Id is not the customer calling but the Branch office1 for example with IPBX call manager express ?

The reason i am asking that question is when the agent answer at the head office, he will know where the calls comming from.

I have this problem too.

Yes, it's possible.

The correct behavoir for all types of call transfers would be to show both name/numbers, of course indicating which is the forwarding one

The phones are perfectly capable to do that, I've verified this while doing certain test with TCL/ICR.

Unfortunately, CME is broken in that regard, I don't know the reason, but it's like cisco not paying attention to this fundamental characteristic.

If you want to bring your case to someone that can try do something about, try contacting Tony Huynh <[email protected]>, he is a Technical Marketing Engineer for CME.
