QUICK TIP: If you have customized your business or company hours, you may also follow the same steps for After Hours. If Call screening is OFF because the User is set to take messages only or is set to play announcements when called after hours, enable the call screening options on Call Handling and change the answering mode. See Configure a User's Call Forwarding to learn more.
