Do you wish you could extend your customer service hours but don't have the staff at one location to do it? You can make that happen by splitting your call traffic between locations. For example, send your inbound, toll-free traffic to your New York office in the morning and your Los Angeles office in the afternoon. Use the time-of-day feature to start and stop when calls ring at your offices. You can update the routing plan later as your business needs change.
Control Center shows the Services console. Use the console to access an inventory of your services, check the status of orders, and manage your services.
In the Network, Security, and Communications box, click Toll Free.
Control Center shows all Toll Free services on the enterprise ID.
Search for the service you want to work with. 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.
From the Call Plan More Actions list, select Edit Call Plan.

Depending on what kind of number you want to route, in the Terminating Route Type section, do one of the following:
To add a dedicated trunk:

From the ANI list, select the terminating route.
If you don't see the trunk/ANI you need, click the ADD ANI TO THE LIST button, fill in the fields, click Add, then select the number from the list.
Note: If you give the ANI a description, describe it so you and your colleagues will remember it. If you leave the description blank, the phone number will show in the list.
