  1. What is Call Park?
    Call Park is a feature which allows AT&T Office@Hand users to put a call on public call park and have a user pick up on another phone in the network by dialing the touch-tone command for that public location. For example, *801 to retrieve the call.
  2. Does Call Park work for both inbound and outbound calling?
    Yes, Call Park works both ways:

    • Inbound – both inside and outside the Office@Handnsystem
    • Outbound – only outside the Office@Hand system. It does not work within the Office@Hand system.
      Example:  User A within Office@Hand account cannot park an outbound call to user B.
  3. Does it work only on AT&T Office@Hand devices?
    Incoming calls can be parked and retrieved on any AT&T Office@Hand devices, regardless of office location. However, calls can also be parked using your home phone, AT&T Office@Hand Desktop App or Mobile App as long as it’s part of the call routing/forwarding rules.
  4. What is Park Location?
    It’s the virtual system location – not to be confused with user extensions.  Virtual locations where an inbound or outbound call is parked are preceded by an asterisk symbol (*).

    • Maximum number of simultaneously parked locations are 100, which range from *800 – *899
