To perform this procedure, you must first have created a group. For instructions, see Create a Fax Device Group. You can add or remove devices from groups at any time. A device can also belong to one or more groups simultaneously. Fax devices in a group can be sorted into priority order, so that the highest priority device in a group will attempt to send a fax first. If it is busy, the next highest priority device will attempt to send.

To add or remove a fax device in a group
  1. Open Fax Service Manager.

  2. In the left pane, double-click Outgoing Routing, and then double-click Groups.

  3. Right-click the group to which you want to add a device, point to New, and then click Device(s).

  4. In Add New Device(s), click the device that you want to add and then click OK.

  5. To change the priority order of devices within a group, in the right pane, right-click a device, click Move Up or Move Down, and then click Yes to confirm.

  6. Later, to remove the device from the group, in the right pane, right-click the device and then click Delete.
