We are wondering if there is a way to replace the standard fax machine? We know we can send faxes out via email (outbound). But can we utilize RC to do inbound to a fax number? Faxes might come into a mailbox instead of to the machine itself anytime something is sent to that number.
The number porting could be a bit intimidating for some. Have you ported numbers before? I would start by porting that analog fax number over to RC, then once it is there, associate it with the new Virtual extension you create for Faxing
You create a user without a phone (This is also called a virtual extension) assign password ETC and get it all set, then turn off things like on hold music , screening, voice mail ETC, as these things are not needed for a fax line.
Then in the notifications section put the E-mail address you want the faxes to arrive at
Yes, probably email. So if someone faxes something to that accounting fax number, it would instead get re-routed to email. Or if there is something else we can do to eliminate evening paying for that analog line and utilize RC?
