What is Call Screening?

Call screening is a telecommunication feature that allows you to see who is calling before answering. It helps you filter important calls, identify unknown numbers, and decide how to handle each call based on the caller’s identity.

How Does Call Screening Work?

Call screening in a business phone system identifies and manages incoming calls using a series of steps to ensure only relevant calls reach you. 
1. Receive the Call: The process starts when you receive a call. The call screening system instantly kicks in, working to identify the caller.

2. Identify the Caller’s Name: The system then uses stored contact information or caller ID services to identify the caller’s name (CNAM) from the incoming number.

3. Prompt for the Caller’s Name: If the caller isn’t identified, the system can prompt them to state their name, providing clarity on who is trying to reach you.

4. Identify Spam Status: Call screening assesses if the incoming call is potentially spam. It helps you avoid unwanted or nuisance calls.

5. Automated Action: Based on the caller’s information and potential spam status, the system can take automated actions like blocking the call or sending it to voicemail.

6. Forward Call to a Live Agent: If the call is important, but you’re unavailable, the system can forward it to a live agent or another designated number.
