It may be easier and more convenient for you to let the Virtual Assistant automatically determine your status based on your call forwarding schedules. These schedules specify your usual work days and hours, lunch period, weekends or days off, vacation periods and holidays. In doing so, you avoid having to change your status manually several times on routine days.
To let the Virtual Assistant determine your status automatically based on your schedules:
- From the main menu, click Call Forwarding > Status.
- Click the status dropdown list and select Back to Schedule. If this option is not available, it's because the option is already active.
- Your status will be automatically saved.
During non-routine periods (a meeting for example), you will need to manually set your status. See Manually Set Your Status for details. To change how calls are handled for a status, see Call Forwarding Rules and Call Filtering Preferences.
