Applies To

  • Virtual Office Configuration Manager Ring Groups

Resolution

Use 'Dial to' instead of the name 'Ring Group B'.

In step 4 and 5 above:

  • Typing in the extension of Ring Group B, also displays 'Dial to: 9999' where '9999' is the extension for Ring Group B.
  • Select 'Dial to: 9999', then the rule and ring group can be saved without error, and the rule is followed.

Cause

Ring Group A and Ring Group B are in different PBXes of you 8x8 account.
When selecting the ring group name, the system looks for the ring group within the same PBX.
