Bypass an existin extention if not active

Hi to all

Is there a solution to jump to another extention, if the one requested in dial plan is inactive (softphone on a PC, but PC not online or not ready), without using follow me setup, to,avoid spending time in ring on the first unreachable one ???

I Don’t know if my expanation is clear, but many thanks for incoming answers


not completely sure what you are trying to do. But I’ll take a guess.

If you want calls coming into Bob and if he is NOT there have them fail over to his Assistant. try and create a ring group. It can try his number first and if it is not it will go to the next one in the group.

but as a simple extension setup there is not a option to define a “assistant” or fall back number if not available/online/registered, etc.
