After setting up your Main Line you may find it helpful to route callers to a specific group or team, like Customer Support or Sales. That's where Departments come into play. 

Create a Department

After creating your Department, you'll be able to add local or toll-free numbers as well as add a fax number (additional charges apply). 

Assigned Operators & Phones

Next, you'll need to assign team members as Operators to make and receive calls on your Department. You can make any Operator a Department Admin by selecting this from the drop-down menu.

You'll also have the option to add a room phone as an Operator, in cases where you may want a shared phone to ring out (like at reception). 

You can add up to 25 Operators and/or phones to a single Department.
