Next, create the incoming call rule so all users in the group will receive the calls.

3. Set incoming call filters (When and on which line to receive incoming calls)

Set the above incoming call rule as a filter to decide which MiiTel line will the rule will be applied and when the rule will be applied for incoming calls.

  1. Log in to MiiTel Admin with administrator privileges.
  2. Click Incoming > Incoming Call Filter
  3. Click Add new incoming call filter.
