Call Transfer is used to transfer a call in progress to some other destination. There are two types of call transfer:
- Attended Transfer - Where the call is placed on hold, a call is placed to another party, a conversation can take place privately before the caller on hold is connected to the new destination. This is also called 'Attended Call Transfer'.
- Blind Transfer - Where the call is transferred to the other destination with no intervention (the other destination could ring out and not be answered for instance).
Note: This instruction is mainly for S-Series VoIP PBX.
