# Getting Started
# How Telair's Hosted PBX Works
Telair's Hosted PBX works by routing (or "sending") incoming calls (via Call Routes) to a feature (such as a Day/Night function or an Announcement). This feature is actioned based on how it is configured, and the call then flows onto a new feature to action. This is then repeated until that call reaches its final destination - such as going to voicemail, ringing on a phone, being placed in a ring group, or flowing into a call queue.
Before configuring your Call Routes, you must, therefore, configure the features first; essentially configuring the system from back to front or from the end of the call to the beginning.
You will find below two examples of call routes/flow; one Basic and one Complex.
