Call transfer

You can transfer the calls to an Internal Extension or an External Phone Number. The keys involved are:

Blind Transfer- Press *1 followed by extension or any phone number on your Yealink Handset.

This will allow you to transfer an existing call to another Internal Extension or External Phone Number while providing the name and the number of the caller being transferred.

Steps involved :

During an Active call, using the soft key button below the screen of the handset, press the Transfer button.

This would put your caller On Hold and provide you with a Dial Tone.

Now, dial the 3 or 4 digit Extension Number or 10 digit Phone Number you are transferring the call to, followed by the Transfer button again.

The transfer is complete once the main screen on your handset returns to an Active State.

Attended Transfer:

This will allow you to introduce the caller you are attempting to transfer, prior to completing the transfer.
