Sometimes the caller notices that the call has been forwarded by the device guidance, and there are cases where the caller does not notice the forwarding without receiving the guidance.

For example, in the case of an automatic forwarding function for forwarding calls from outside the company to a pre-registered number, it is common for the call to be forwarded to the other party.

Some call forwarding services also have a function that allows you to play any message as an announcement when forwarding a call .

If you make good use of this function, it will be useful not only for improving the efficiency of normal phone calls, but also when relocating an office or opening a new store.

On the other hand, in the case of internal call forwarding, there are many cases where no notice is given, so the other party often does not notice even if the call is forwarded to another number.
