Feature with Call Forward

Hi,

I would like to request a feature in VitXi to configure Call Forward instead of use this options:

All ours employes forget this numbers and with one button or menu it is more easier to configure this for each one.

In the meantime, you can set a contact “Call Forward” with those values

Hi @PitzKey ,

Thanks for your sugestion.

By the way, is there any possible to choise which call to forward with a filter or exception list?

We want enable forwarding all calls with some exception from a list source Numbers.

When some exception numbers make a call to the final number, we don’t want that the call was forwarded.

Example:

Extension number 1000 have all call’s forwarding to mobile phone number 999999999.

if one of internal extension like 1001, call to 1000, the call wil be forwarded to 999999999.

If some external number call to 1000, like 88888888, the call will be forwarded to 999999999.

We want a feature that have a exception numbers that will not be forwarded evean when the extension 1000 have all calls forwarded to other number like 999999999.

Example:

List that will not be forwarded with call forwarded enable:

numbers:
3333 (internal)
555555555 (external)

extension 1000 with all calls forwarding enable.

One call from 2222 to 1000, will be forwarded to 99999999.
One call from 444444444 to 1000 will be forwarded to 999999999.

call from 3333 to 1000, will not be forwarded to 999999999 evean when 1000 has the call forwarded enable and the call will be ring in 1000 instead of in 999999999. number from the exception list.

call from 555555555 to 1000, will not be forwarded to 999999999 evean when 1000 has the call forwarded enable and the call will be ring in 1000 instead of in 999999999.

Can be done with a Custom Context (Asterisk Dialplan).

Thanks for the info @mo10 :facepunch:

Thanks @mo10 for this suggestion and example.

How we can make priority in this dialplan when 206 has the option “follow me” to forward all calls to your cell phone?

You can look and learn from dialplans here:

cd /etc/asterisk/vitalpbx/

interessting:
extensions__20-baseplan.conf 
extensions__50-1-dialplan.conf
extensions__50-1-features.conf
...

Then create your own Custom Context.

FollowMe called FWM as well.

Share your final results with everyone here!

what happens when update the VitalPBX? This files that I had changed disappear or change?

Like I said. Files only to learn.
Do your own custom context with the link I sent.
