Claim of US Patent No. 10,462,302

1. A method for executing routing of an object of a communication activity, which is sent from a sender terminal device to a first user terminal device of a first user via a first data connection and/or telephone connection so that the object of the communication activity is routable to a second user terminal device of a second user via a second data connection and/or telephone connection when the object is received within a first pre-selected time period and prior to authorization of a routing change that approves of the routing of the object to the second user terminal device, the method comprising:prior to the object of the communication activity being sent, defining the second data connection and/or telephone connection with respect to the first data connection and/or telephone connection via the first user terminal device so that the object is routable to the second user terminal device;
in response to the defining of the second data connection and/or telephone connection, immediately implementing a routing change so that the object is routable to the second user terminal device via the second data connection and/or telephone connection before approval of the routing change is received from a second user of the second user terminal device;
sending a first notification regarding the defining of the second data connection and/or telephone connection for authorization of the routing change;
deactivating the routing change in response to (i) a second notification that responds to the first notification to deny authorization for the routing change or (ii) a non-receipt of a second notification that approves the routing change within a first pre-selected time period, the deactivating occurring to prevent any subsequent routing of communication objects to the second user terminal device.
