Frequently Asked Questions
The settings for handling calls with Grasshopper are underneath the Extensions tab in your online account. Choose your extension, click Edit, and hit the button to add forwarding numbers. You can then adjust the forwarding order, when that number is available and how Grasshopper should handle calls to that number.
Up to a maximum of 15 phone numbers per extension. Each number rings in order for the number of seconds you specify. Keep in mind that the more numbers you add, the longer a customer may wait!
You can easily change the ring time for your forwarding numbers so that callers don’t wait too long on each attempt. For a small extra fee, you can also have calls ring all your forwarding numbers simultaneously through our Call Blasting feature to cut down on call handling time.
