The Business Continuity feature allows you to choose a phone number (aside from your office number) to receive calls in the event your office phone is not reachable, disconnected, or service is unavailable. Once phone continuity issues are resolved, the feature automatically sends calls back to your office phone. For example- if you lose power during a thunderstorm, calls are automatically routed to a pre-determined number.
