Adding a Multiline Hunt Group

 

When you add a multiline hunt group you are performing two actions in one, you are adding a new set device into the database and creating the new multiline hunt group. The set starts the new group and becomes the first member. Cairs.net assigns this set to Hunt Group Position of 1. When you add subsequent member to this new group, the second member is given the position of 2 and the next member added to the group is given position 3, and so forth. This position sequence gives the forwarding pattern for the group.
