After my business closes, I still want people to be able to make appointments. How can I do this?
call-forward to your cell phone before you leave the office?
If you have a Shaw Business account there is also a Business account feature that might work better than cal lforwarding
Shaw Business Support — Definition of Multi-Line Hunting - Shaw.ca
Shaw is very very hesitant about setting up multi-line hunting to numbers that aren't Shaw numbers.
Call-Forward No-Answer might be a better alternative, but if you only want them forwarded after hours, setting call-forward up at night, or simultanous ring might be a better choice
Simultanous ring wouldn't work if your cell phone has poor recption, or you are dialing a call because all incoming calls will go to voicemail
I thnk @cappuchino is asking about automated time-based call-forwarding. I'm not aware if Shaw biz offers such a phone feature (which IMO would be a great feature to offer).
I've setup my shaw biz number with the multi-line hunting call feature to include a cell phone number (hosted on Rogers). However, it does work but I've found there are a few drawbacks. First, like call-forwarding, it's on all the time, so the cell will ring whenever someone dials the shaw number everytime, not just after 7pm. Not sure if this happens to anyone else, but when the cell phone tries to call the shaw number, it automatically goes to the shaw number's voicemail.
@kevinds Even Shaw is hesitant about setting up MLH to non-shaw numbers, the customer can always do it themselves via the phone portal or even the iOS phone app.
Multi-Line Hunting is in the the phone-portal? That is cool, I didn't know that
