Call Parking

Call Parking is a feature that allows you to suspend a call for an extended period of time and then retrieve that call from any extension.

Scenarios

During a call with clients, extension users may need to check information somewhere else. In such case, extension users can park the call temporarily and retrieve the call by any extensions when getting things done.
