Hi, I have not posted on here before so hope I don't do the wrong thing!

Is it possible to answer a phone call in Teams, put that call on hold while you call someone else, (either phone or teams call) finish that call and reconnect to the original call?

e.g. Customer service putting a customer on hold while they call the specialist, get the required info and reconnect to give the customer the info. 

From what I have read it seems possible but the use of the word call for a "phone call" or a "Teams call" makes it a little unclear.

thanks!

@Jolyon740 Yes, it is possible to put a call on hold in Teams.

When a call is on hold you can dial a second call to someone else. I wrote some about it here:
