How Does It Work?

We provide you with a series of options for call filters, plus the ability to blacklist or whitelist individual numbers or parts of numbers. Calls that you put on these lists will be sent to recorded messages and the line dropped automatically.

You can also create a set of policies for managing outbound calls. These can be applied to your chosen extensions allowing you to control what numbers individual staff can call.

Details on how to configure our call barring service can be found on our Call Barring Support page.

If you have a particular problem caller who's number you know, instead of sending the call to voicemail you may route it directly to our 166 anti-telesales number.
