Manage Call Settings for a User in AT&T Collaborate Enhanced Mobile

You can activate and then manage the AT&T Collaborate™ call forwarding function for a selected user. First, you activate call forwarding. Users can then manage call forwarding and ringing settings on their AT&T Collaborate homepage. You can also manage these settings for the user.

Features affecting how incoming calls are processed are grouped by forwarding preconditions, basic call forwarding features, and advanced ringing settings.

Advanced ringing settings provide flexibility for how callers can reach the user. Forwarding preconditions take precedence and override basic and advanced conditions.

These are some examples of preconditions:

  • When a user can’t accept calls for a few hours, turn on the Do Not Disturb call forwarding precondition. Other forwarding settings are temporarily ignored and all calls go to voicemail or receive a busy signal.
  • When you don’t want the user to accept calls from callers who hide their caller ID, turn on the Anonymous Call Rejection precondition. Calls without caller ID are automatically rejected.
  • When you want to forward this user’s incoming calls to a common forwarding number specified for the location, you can manage location night forwarding and then turn on Location Night Forwarding for this user. Location Night Forwarding overrides all other call forwarding settings.
  • You can define selective criteria rules that evaluate an incoming call to determine whether to pass the call on to the user’s basic or advanced call forwarding settings. For example, when you want to screen calls based on particular phone numbers or the time of day, set Selective Call Acceptance and Selective Call Rejection criteria as preconditions.
