How to Forward Calls from Dialpad to

Crystal Field Updated by Crystal Field

Dialpad customers will need to set up call forwarding to in order for our receptionists to answer your calls.

As soon as you're signed up for and have completed the onboarding process, follow the directions below to change the settings in your Dialpad account to ensure your calls are being forwarded correctly. 

  1. Log in to Dialpad
  2. Go to your Admin settings, and click on Main Line.
  1. Navigate to Business Hours & Call Routing, and then click on the Call Routing button on the right.
  1. Click on Other Routing Options, and insert your Smith number under To a Team member/Room phone/ Number. Hit enter to save the number. You'll want to make sure you set the call routing for Open Hours and Closed Hours if applicable.
If you do not see the option to forward To a Team member/Room phone/ Number, you will need to reach out to Dialpad support, and ask them to enable the feature. Inform them you would like to forward your calls to an external number, and they will verify once the option is available.
