How to manage calls in the console

In the left-hand pane view all inbound calls. Based on the number the caller dialed, the console displays the organization the caller is trying to reach as well as the “answer script” which tells the receptionist how to answer the call and any priority notes.


When an active call is selected from the list on the left, all the contacts associated with the organization will display in the right-hand pane. It also shows the current status of the contact (Available, Away, etc.).


To manage a call, the call is selected in the left pane, then a contact in the right pane, then an action button is selected (transfer, attended transfer, voicemail, park, drop, etc.). You can also email notes to the contact as well.
