Adding direct-trunk-overflow to a routing plan

If you want your customers to talk to someone rather than get a busy signal. Use the direct-trunk-overflow feature to ensure callers terminate on a DID/ANI ring-to number.

To add direct-trunk-overflow to a routing plan:

If you have more than 10 services, you can view the rest of your services by clicking one of the blue linked Show numbers at the top of the list or you can click the blue down arrow at the bottom of the list to add 10 services at a time to the view.

    • Search for a specific service (by service type, account, etc.) using the Search by… field and search box. (To search using multiple search criteria, click Advanced Search, then fill in your search criteria and click Apply Search Filters. When you're done, click Close Advanced Search.)
