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:

  1. Click Services, then click Network, Security, and Communications.

    Control Center shows a list of all services assigned to the billing accounts under the enterprise ID.

    • Start typing details for the service (e.g., the product name, location, or service ID). Control Center filters the list of services as you type.

    • Filter your services by selecting an option from the All Service Types list.

    • To filter your orders based on a specific value, select an attribute from the Advanced Filters icon (), click the section(s) you want to filter by, type your filter criteria, then click Apply.
  1. When you find the service you want to work with, click the hyperlinked service ID or click the icon (in the Actions column), then click View Details.

    Control Center shows details for the toll-free service you selected.
