Transfer now: Also known as 'Cold Transfer' or 'Blind Transfer', will transfer the call immediately to the agent you chose after clicking the button.
Ask first: Also known as 'Warm Transfer' or 'Attended Transfer', will initiate an internal call, enabling the agent to ask if the other person wants to accept the call before transferring.
Transfer to voicemail: This option will transfer the call directly to the agent's voicemail you chose so the caller can leave a message. This option is only available when the transfer target is a PhoneIQ user.
