Terminology for call interception

When the operator is not available at the telephone exchange and an external call is ringing, there is a feature in the exchange which allows me to intercept the call and receive it at my extension.

I would have named it "Call interception" but I cannot find this term (or any alternative term) on the manual of our KX-T7730 exchange.

What is such a feature called?

Does anyone know the command for this feature?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I think I'd name it 'call pickup' or 'group pickup'.

I was thinking along the lines of rescue and adoption, but group pickup is probably better.

Interception has connotation of stealing, spying, or interfering.

According to this Quick Reference Guide for Model
KX-T7720/KX-T7730
KX-T7731/KX-T7735
KX-T7736/KX-T7750
http://service.us.panasonic.com/OPERMANPDF/KXT7720.pdf,
for what you are describing, it is called, "Forwarding a call", and there is a distinction between
"Busy", "No answer", and "Busy/No answer".
