Extension PickupGroup / CallGroup

I’m pretty new to Asterisk and FreePBX. We have 1 office location setup with 10 extensions. Everything is going great so far. I have two extensions that would like to answer each others phone calls, I’ll need to setup their pickup group settings. So far I have no settings for any of the extensions callgroup or pickupgroup.

Do I simply set the two extension pickupgroup settings to say “1” to put them both in pickupgroup 1?

Do I need to do anything with the callgroup settings?

I only want these users to answer each others extensions, and have no other extensions be able to do this or be aware of it.

Just set pickup group and call group to 1 for both extensions and they will be able to do call pickup for each other.
