Manage Hunt Group settings online

Updated 6/24/2019 4:31:13 PM by Comcast Expert


A Hunt Group directs an incoming call to an assigned group of users, allowing an available user to answer the call if other lines are busy. Business Voice offers up to 4 regular (Sequential) Hunt Groups. This ring pattern rings phone numbers individually, in a specific order, until the call is answered or the end of the list is reached. If the call goes unaswered, it will then go to the dialed number's voicemail. 

Note: This feature may not be available in all areas.
