Transferring calls on an Avaya phone system is necessary if you must send a call to another extension within your organisation. Whether you answer all incoming calls or simply need to transfer a call to a supervisor, the transfer button on Avaya handsets lets you send the call to another extension and speak to someone on the receiving end before transferring the call.
