A hunt group is used to route calls to a limited set of user extensions within your Broadtela phone system. Hunt groups typically consist of user phone profiles for specialized areas of a company or organization. For example, a Sales hunt group would route calls to a group of selected sales personnel in your company. A hunt group should contain a maximum of 16 members.
