Call Queue - CallerID

System Information
Debian GNU/Linux 11 (bullseye)
Kernel: 5.10.0-21-amd64
Asterisk: 18.16.0
VitalPBX: 4.0.2-1
PHP Version: 8.1.11

Found the CallerID from a Queue has not spacing or separation from Queue name and Caller ID.

Queue Name: After Hours
Inbound Caller: Cordless

On queue members inbound call, they see After HoursCordless.
SIP Invite section shown below.

Checking, the issue lies line 2552 of extensions__20-baseplan.conf.

I have manually adjusted to suit some nicer spacing

Result is now a more user friendly name

Is development able to add a fix for this in core? Possible check any other routines this may also be applicable too i.e. Ring Groups etc?

You can add a space in the form.

"After Hours "

As in… name the queue 'After Hours ’ or keeping with my example with hyphen 'After Hours - '?

If so, yes that had already been known given what was found - however we deemed it a poor way to remedy a root cause and elected to have it correctly raised as a bug.

Some people prefer no space. So, if you want a space a hyphen, or whatever, you can do that from the GUI.


We label ours with short codes then a colon, forcing a space just wastes valuable screen space so I agree the proper solution is add a space if you want one but don’t force it.

Example from the Help Desk line = HD:CALLER NAME
