Hello


You can set Call Forwarding on the Snom 821 but it applies to all callers. See :

If you want only the PA to be able to call the user's phone, then maybe just use the PA's number for all calls from external, and only the PA knows the internal number of the user.


Also interesting to you could be the VIP feature for DND: you can set DND(do not disturb) on the user's phone and then add a Directory entry for the PA's number with Contact Type: VIP.  Then nobody will be allowed to call the user except for the secretary.


I hope this helps.


Thanks
