Desktop app - Park Locations for HUD | BT Cloud Work

« Go Back



Park Locations is a feature on the BT Cloud Work Desktop App HUD that allows you to park a call privately that can only be answered by users within the group. Park Locations on the Desktop App HUD allows you to answer a call and park it in a location (extension) that only specific people or groups can pick up. For example, a receptionist or assistant can answer calls on behalf of a senior manager and then park the call on hold until that person is free to pick it up.

• Create private Park Locations that are only visible for users who can park and pick up calls within the group.
• Support up to 100 Park Location groups per account.
• Pick up parked call anywhere from the BT Cloud Work Desktop App, even if you are away from your desk.
• Increase security - allow access to parked phone calls for selected employees.
