Configure an Operator Extension on a UM Dial Plan

Exchange 2010
 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2010 SP3, Exchange Server 2010 SP2

Topic Last Modified: 2012-07-23

You can configure an extension number for a Unified Messaging (UM) dial plan. You can set it to transfer calls to a UM auto attendant, if one is configured, a human operator, external telephone numbers, or extension numbers. When you configure an operator extension number on a UM dial plan, a caller can connect to the dial plan operator by doing one of the following:

  • Pressing the zero (0) key

  • Saying "Reception"

  • Saying "Operator"

noteNote:
If the caller exceeds the maximum number of touchtone or voice input retries, they're transferred to the operator extension number, if you've defined an operator extension number and enabled business hours operator transfers.
