Geographical forwarding

In order to have calls to your toll-free number forwarded to another number, you will need to set up call routing.

When logged in you will see a column on the left side of your screen. You can access your preferences by selecting the categories shown in this column. For call routing, you will need to select the “Numbers” option.




From here, you can either click on the number for which you wish to edit your preferences or you can hover over the 3 dots on the right and select “Manage” from the options that appear.



You will then need scroll down to the “Call Routing” category in order to enter your forwarding number.




Within the “Call Routing” category you will be able to select the method of routing, add your forwarding number(s), select your Caller ID preference, and select the number of ring seconds. "Geo" limits calls to only be accepted, per the caller's geographical location.



When adding forwarding numbers under the "Geo" forwarding option, you will need to designate area codes, separated by commas, for each line. You have the option to label each line, as a quick reference. 



All calls coming from unspecified area codes will go to the number set for “All Other Area Codes”. If no “All Other Area Codes” forwarding number is set, then all other area codes will forward to voicemail. If no voicemail is set, calls will not complete.



You can add additional numbers by clicking the "+ Add Another Number" box. 



You can change the caller ID toggle to your toll-free number (on the right) if you want your toll-free number to show up on your caller ID instead of the caller’s information. To the right of that is your ring second slider which is set to 20 seconds by default. Repeat this process for every number you want to add. 



You can lengthen or shorten the ring seconds as you please but there are several things to consider. 


If you add more than one number, under standard forwarding, you will need to designate weights to each number. 


You also have the option to prevent forwarding number voicemails from engaging by clicking the "Prevent Voicemail From Answering Forwarded Calls" button, underneath the forwarding options. In this section, you can use the "Time To Accept Call In Seconds" slide-bar to set how long you have to accept the call on your receiving device{s). Under the slide-bar, there is a drop-down menu to select a recording to play, while calls are ringing. This is set to ring, by default. If you expand the drop-down, you will see a pre recorded music file to select. If you would prefer to add or create your own, You can select the "+" button to the right, and a box will appear in order for you to upload a file or record a message. 




*Note, if you don’t intend on using’s voicemail service you will need to extend the call seconds in order to allow your provider’s voicemail system to engage. The call will disconnect at the end of the ring second limit if another service has not engaged.


Below the "Prevent Voicemail From Answering Forwarded Calls" section, there is an option to enable the voicemail service through When you click this button, your voicemail settings will open. The top box will allow you to configure your business hours, so you can set a different voicemail greeting for when during and after business hours.
