Call Forwarding

Easily forward phone calls to a range of devices and never miss another call again.

Benefits of Call Forwarding:

RingCentral’s business call forwarding service enables you to easily forward phone calls to another phone number, device or department. With our call forwarding in place, you’ll never again worry about missing that key business call.

It’s also easy to screen telemarketers and block calls without a caller ID – so you can finally say goodbye to cold callers for good.

The RingCentral business call forwarding service is simple to set up and enables you to divert calls with ease. Our call forwarding rules allow you to forward calls to multiple different phone numbers at once, or set up a consecutive order - for example office, mobile, then home phone.

RingCentral’s cloud phone system lets you go far beyond regular call routing, offering a range of advanced possibilities for managing the forwarding of calls. Here are a few of the key features you can make use of:

  • Forward calls to up to 10 phone numbers, which you can choose to ring at the same time or in whatever order you prefer. 
  • Set the number of times each phone rings before a call is diverted to the next device.
  • Make sure calls are always routed to the right person by setting custom call divert rules based on the time of day, day of week and caller ID. 
  • Select specific Ring Groups that forwarded calls should go to.

We appreciate how frustrating it is to get weekly, if not daily, cold calls. They’re inconvenient, unwanted, and highly deceptive now that number spoofing allows them to appear as local numbers. RingCentral’s call forwarding makes all that a thing of the past by allowing you to:

  • Screen telemarketers and cold calls by getting callers to introduce themselves first. You can then choose to reject incoming calls of callers you don’t recognise. 
  • Block any callers who don’t have specific caller ID information. 
  • Play a message such as ‘Calls with no caller ID are not allowed’ to people phoning from a number without a caller ID.
