HUNT GROUP QUICK REFERENCE GUIDE
The Hunt Group service is used to automatically route incoming calls received by a
single defined phone number, by distributing them amongst a group of users.
Incoming calls to individual extension numbers still remain available.
There are 5 hunt group routing policies which can be defined for how calls are
presented to the group.
You have the following options within a Hunt Group Profile that can be changed.
Profile, Addresses, Password, Voice Portal, Assign Services

Allow Call waiting on agents: Use this feature if you require the
agents to have more than one call at a time directed to them. Agents
must also have their Call Waiting feature in their user profile also
selected

The Group Policy options configure the call-distribution pattern for
incoming calls
