Advanced Call Forwarding: Flexible Rules

Simultaneous or Sequential

With 8x8 you can forward your calls to as many numbers as you like. You can choose to have those numbers ring at the same time (simultaneous ring), or they can ring in a specific order until your call finds you (sequential ring). If you don’t pick up after all the numbers have rung, the call can go to voicemail.

If you are concerned about someone else picking up your calls, you can also password-protect your destinations. You can even turn on call screening so that your callers need to identify themselves before their call is put through to you.

Default Rules

  • If I don’t answer, forward my calls to…
  • If my phone is busy, forward my calls to…
