Parking and retrieving a call #

When you park a call, the caller is placed in a hold bay until you or another person takes the parked call out of its parking space. Anyone can park or unpark a call, so it’s a popular way of transferring calls in a small office where you can see each other. “Hey Richard, there is a call for you parked on 1!”

Note: The default short codes to park/retrieve a call are *11 (for parking Space 1), *12 (for parking Space 2), *13 (for parking Space 3) with *14 and *15 for Spaces 4 and 5.
