Integrating with Aircall’s Telephony System
Check your pricing plan
To begin, contact your Aircall representative to ensure that billing for inbound calls transferring to RedRoute is set up correctly.
Some older plans bill transfers as outbound calls, which may result in high charges on your Aircall account. If that is the case, check if you can switch to a newer plan. Reach out to email@example.com if you have any questions.
Authorize RedRoute’s access to your account

Set up your Test Phone Number
We recommend starting with a Test Number that doesn’t receive calls from your customers. You will add your other phone numbers later.
If you need to, you can temporarily buy another Aircall number as a Test Number.

If RedRoute is unable to automate a call, we will say "We will now forward you to an operator", and then forward to the Main Call Queue number. This Main Call Queue number should be set up in the same way as your main number.
Return to the RedRoute portal.
In the Forward to RedRoute Number dialog, select the checkbox next to your test number. Your Aircall number will now automatically forward to RedRoute.
Click Start Testing.
On the Testing page, select the appropriate checkboxes from the Test Cases list and click Finish.

In the Forward Public Numbers window, go to your Aircall Dashboard.
In the Connected numbers dialog, click Add or remove numbers.

In the Call Queue Routing dialog, choose whether you want to add additional routing types, and if you want to use your legacy IVR system while RedRoute is ramping up to handle all your calls.
