Setting up up barge in exempt

Choose the image that looks most like your screen once logged in.


The Barge-in Exempt feature directly relates to Directed Call Pickup with Barge-in, a feature that allows you to conference into another user’s phone call. This feature can be used when a supervisor needs to intervene or for many other reasons. If you do not want people to be able to barge in on your personal calls, have your system Administrator enable Barge-in Exempt for your extension. If you have the Barge-in Exempt service enabled, a person using the Directed Call Pick-up with Barge-In service will not be able to conference into your calls.


    1. From the Nextiva Voice Admin Dashboard, hover over Advanced Routing and select Call Center Locations.



    1. Click the blue Log In button to the right of the Call Center Location that the User belongs to.



    1. After a new tab appears for convenience, select the Users option in the Profile section.



    1. Select the Search button to locate all Users on the location.

Using Barge-In:
