Setting up remote extensions

A remote extension reaches an external phone by automatically selecting a line from a trunk and dialing the phone number. For example, a remote extension could reach an employee’s cell phone or home phone, or a phone at a branch office.

A caller can connect to a remote extension through the auto attendant, or can be transferred to a remote extension by a call cascade. A user at a local extension can manually transfer a caller to a remote extension, or can dial a remote extension directly. If the remote extension is busy or unanswered, the system can route the call using the remote extension’s call cascade.

For example, a caller reaches the auto attendant and dials a local extension. The user is not there, so the call is unanswered. The call cascade of the local extension can be configured to transfer unanswered calls to a remote extension. The remote extension can be configured to dial the user’s cellular phone. This way the user is available outside the office.

Remote extensions are designed to operate with local major telephone service providers. The feature may not function correctly with some telephone and mobile operator’s networks, especially for international phone numbers and mobile phones roaming internationally.

To configure a remote extension

  1. Go to Extension > Extension > Remote Extension.
  2. Click New.
  3. Configure the following:

    GUI field

    Description

    Number

    Enter the local extension number from which calls are transferred to a remote extension.

    Remote number

    Enter the remote phone number to which a call to the local extension is transferred. You can enter digits 0–9, space, dash, comma, # and *.

    If you want to enter an auto attendant number followed by an extension, you can use comma (,) or semicolon (;) to pause the automatic dialing.

    A comma pauses dialing for two seconds, for example, 1-123-222-1234, 5678#. In this case, once auto attendant 1-123-1234 is dialed, and after two seconds, extension 5678 is automatically dialed.

    A semicolon pauses dialing for one second, for example, 1-123-222-1234; 5678#. In this case, once auto attendant 1-123-1234 is dialed, and after one second, extension 5678 is automatically dialed.

    Enable

    Select to activate the remote extension.

    Display name

    The name displaying on the remote extension when a call is transferred.

    You can choose to display the name differently than the one you entered here. See Modifying caller IDs.

    Click the + sign if you want to add caller IDs:

    • External caller ID: Enter the external caller ID that displays on a called phone when a call is transferred through the remote extension. Use the name<phone_number> format, such as HR<222134>.
    • Emergency caller ID: Enter the emergency caller ID. Use the name<phone_number> format, such as HR<222134>.

    If you do not enter the caller IDs, your organization's main number will be used. If you add both IDs, the emergency ID will only be used when making emergency calls. All other calls will use the external caller ID.

Configuring fax extensions

If you want to continue using your fax machine with the VoIP phone system, connect the fax machine to an adapter (such as OBIHAI OBi 200, Cisco SPA 112, or Grandstream HT 702) that supports T38 first before connecting it to the FortiVoice unit. T38 is a protocol designed to allow fax to travel over a VoIP network.

In this case, the fax machine is treated like an extension. The FortiVoice unit receives faxes and relays them to the fax machine. Faxes sent from the fax machine will follow the fax sending dial plans.

To use this option, you need to create and enable the fax extensions first. You then need to configure the FortiVoice unit to receive and relay the faxes to the fax machine.

For information on fax configuration, see Configuring fax.

To create or edit a fax extension

  1. Go to Extension > Extension > Fax Extension.
  2. Click New or double-click an existing extension.

Setting up remote extensions

A remote extension reaches an external phone by automatically selecting a line from a trunk and dialing the phone number. For example, a remote extension could reach an employee’s cell phone or home phone, or a phone at a branch office.

A caller can connect to a remote extension through the auto attendant, or can be transferred to a remote extension by a call cascade. A user at a local extension can manually transfer a caller to a remote extension, or can dial a remote extension directly. If the remote extension is busy or unanswered, the system can route the call using the remote extension’s call cascade.

For example, a caller reaches the auto attendant and dials a local extension. The user is not there, so the call is unanswered. The call cascade of the local extension can be configured to transfer unanswered calls to a remote extension. The remote extension can be configured to dial the user’s cellular phone. This way the user is available outside the office.

Remote extensions are designed to operate with local major telephone service providers. The feature may not function correctly with some telephone and mobile operator’s networks, especially for international phone numbers and mobile phones roaming internationally.

To configure a remote extension

  1. Go to Extension > Extension > Remote Extension.
  2. Click New.
  3. Configure the following:

    GUI field

    Description

    Number

    Enter the local extension number from which calls are transferred to a remote extension.

    Remote number

    Enter the remote phone number to which a call to the local extension is transferred. You can enter digits 0–9, space, dash, comma, # and *.

    If you want to enter an auto attendant number followed by an extension, you can use comma (,) or semicolon (;) to pause the automatic dialing.

    A comma pauses dialing for two seconds, for example, 1-123-222-1234, 5678#. In this case, once auto attendant 1-123-1234 is dialed, and after two seconds, extension 5678 is automatically dialed.

    A semicolon pauses dialing for one second, for example, 1-123-222-1234; 5678#. In this case, once auto attendant 1-123-1234 is dialed, and after one second, extension 5678 is automatically dialed.

    Enable

    Select to activate the remote extension.

    Display name

    The name displaying on the remote extension when a call is transferred.

    You can choose to display the name differently than the one you entered here. See Modifying caller IDs.

    Click the + sign if you want to add caller IDs:

    • External caller ID: Enter the external caller ID that displays on a called phone when a call is transferred through the remote extension. Use the name<phone_number> format, such as HR<222134>.
    • Emergency caller ID: Enter the emergency caller ID. Use the name<phone_number> format, such as HR<222134>.

    If you do not enter the caller IDs, your organization's main number will be used. If you add both IDs, the emergency ID will only be used when making emergency calls. All other calls will use the external caller ID.

Configuring fax extensions

If you want to continue using your fax machine with the VoIP phone system, connect the fax machine to an adapter (such as OBIHAI OBi 200, Cisco SPA 112, or Grandstream HT 702) that supports T38 first before connecting it to the FortiVoice unit. T38 is a protocol designed to allow fax to travel over a VoIP network.

In this case, the fax machine is treated like an extension. The FortiVoice unit receives faxes and relays them to the fax machine. Faxes sent from the fax machine will follow the fax sending dial plans.

To use this option, you need to create and enable the fax extensions first. You then need to configure the FortiVoice unit to receive and relay the faxes to the fax machine.

For information on fax configuration, see Configuring fax.

Handling calls

Extension > Extension > Preference > Call Handling allows you to manage the call process. For example, you can configure the process to forward a call to another number on a specific schedule.

You can manage a normal call handling by configuring the call process for different situations. You can also manage quick call handling by dialing a code to enter into a default mode and configure the call process for that particular mode if required.

If the extension with configured call handling action is part of another FortiVoice function that also has configured call handling action (for example, a member of a ring group or used for a virtual number), then the call handling action of the other FortiVoice function overrides the extension call handling action.

To handle a normal call

  1. Go to Extension > Extension > Preference > Call Handling.
  2. Click Normal Call Handling.
  3. Select a call status.

    Each status can only be used for one call management configuration.

  4. Select System default action or User defined action.

    The System default action (action shows in brackets) changes depending on the status selection.

  5. If you select User defined, click New to define a call process according to a schedule.

    • Add an Action for the call process.

      For some call handling processes that may require further actions, you need to add one or more call processes to complete the call handling. For example, after adding a process that contains a Forward action, you can add another process with a Go voicemail action to complete the call handling. In this case, the call will be forwarded to the phone specified and if the phone is not picked up, a voicemail will be left on this extension.

      Default action is equal to the action when you select System default action under Call Process.
