-So, let's say that you're a business with real people employed for the purpose of answering the phone during business hours. We can accommodate this! Simply define the **"​Schedule"​** for the hours your employee will be answering the phones. Then, navigate to **"​Configuration"​** => **"​Receptionist"​** => **"​Open Receptionist"​**,​ and click the button labeled **"​Human Receptionist"​** that lives right below the box for the **"​Script"​** and right above **"​Voice Style:"​**. Now, your **"​Open Receptionist"​** will have only one way to route calls. Click the **"​0"​** drop down under **"​Send caller to group/​extension"​** and select the phone your human receptionist will be using. With this configuration,​ people who call after hours will still get your **"​Closed Receptionist"​**,​ however, you can also set it to **"​Human Receptionist"​**,​ and from there, can send callers directly to a phone, group, or even straight to a [[voicemail|voicemail box]].+So, let's say that you're a business with real people employed for the purpose of answering the phone during business hours.
