Server Side Forward Calls Lync 2013

Hi,

I have been told it is possible in Lync server 2013 to set up call forwarding / Simring, both server side and client side.

So that if user X is calls, it will also always call a number set server side. But still allow them to set up their own call forward through the client.

Any one know how this is done.

For example I want it so that if you call user A, it will also always ring the reception phone. However user A can still forward his number to another phone such as his mobile if he wishes, But calls will still be forward to reception as well.

Cheers

No you can't do this server side unless there's a 3rd party app or tool, it only works client side ! You have the option to forward the call on Lync client or set it to sim ring.

It can done also by your gateway, gateways I know of that do this are Sonus, Patton ..

You can use the SEAFUtil Resource Kit utility to configure server-side call forwarding rules for Lync users:

I saw Sefutil and was going to look at it but one thing I was not sure about.

If I sue it to set up call forwarding, if the user then changes call forwarding in there client does this over ride the  seting on Sfeutil?

Also Mohammed I know you could in theory do this on the Sonus  but that requires Call forking which is not currently licenced. So I want to exhaust other methods to achieve this before I do this. forking also becomes more complex   configuration.

Yes you're right in Sonus call forking requires license but not in Patton. and I think no it won't override! The client settings probably won't have any effect on the call flow since it'll be forwarded from the server side.

It seems that it simple updates the clients fowardsetting so if the change it then it over rides it.

Also when it forwards a call it sends it with a calling ID of "anonymous", it would be much nicer if it sent the lync users number.
