Incoming Call Routing:

By default, we will ring the Calling numbers associated with each user's Follow Up Boss account:

We can also ring up to five mobile numbers:

If you prefer not to ring team members directly, you can choose to have calls go to voicemail or be forwarded to an outside number.

Missed Calls:

If no one answers, choose to have callers go to voicemail, or forward them to another number:

Office Hours:

By default, your Team Inbox will route 24 hours a day. Add office hours to forward calls to voicemail or a separate number outside of these times.

1. Office hours are set under Admin > Company:
