Hunt Group

Hunt Group

This section describes how to configure a hunt group in an EC6.X or UC2.X network environment.


  • In the EC6.X network environment, the hunt group service rights have been enabled for the IP phone on the uPortal server. For more information, see the CloudEC Product Documentation.
  • In the UC2.X network environment, the hunt group service rights have been enabled for the IP phone on the eSpace U1900 series unified gateway. For more information, see the eSpace EC Product Documentation.


In an enterprise, employees in the same field can be added to a hunt group, with the group access code configured. After a user dials the access code of this hunt group, the system calls members in the hunt group, and the phones in the hunt group ring in the specified ringing mode (simultaneous ringing, sequential ringing, or cyclic ringing). If no one in the hunt group answers the call, the call is transferred to the voicemail or a specific number.

The implementation (sign-in/sign-out mode, ringing mode, and call transfer mode) of the hunt group function varies depending on the administrator's configuration policies.

  • Dynamic sign-in: Members in a hunt group can manually sign in to and sign out of the hunt group. If authentication is required, members need to enter a 6-digit password as prompted before sign-in or sign-out.
  • Static sign-in: Members in a hunt group are automatically signed in. They cannot sign out.
  • Hunt group members can ask their system administrator for the authentication password.
  • If an incorrect password is entered for one consecutive times, the sign-in or sign-out fails.

When a call comes in to a hunt group, idle phones in this hunt group ring in the specified ringing mode.

  • Default: Only phones with the highest priority ring.
  • Simultaneous ringing: Phones in the hunt group ring simultaneously.
  • Sequential ringing: Phones in the hunt group ring in a specific sequence. The phones that already rang do not ring again.
  • Cyclic ringing: Phones in the hunt group ring in a specific sequence. If no one answers the call within the first cycle, the phones ring again in the specific sequence until the maximum ringing duration (default: 60s) expires.
