Hunt group numbers - a hunt group number isn't connected to any particular phone, but connects your caller to the first available phone within a group of extension numbers. So you can set up a group of people, all whom can handle a call, and your customers can get through to the first one who's free to answer

Call return - tells you the number of the last person who called you and rings them back

Ring back when next used - if you call a Featureline extension but don't get an answer, this will call you back and connect you after the Featureline extension is next used
