Title: Syntax for a Hotline in Outbound Calling Route
Post by: TTCP on December 06, 2017, 11:40:11 am
Hi,

I want to create an outgoing hotline for my OBI200.

In the manual, it says:
    <:1234> Matches an empty phone number and replaces with 1234. This is the syntax for a hotline to 1234
    <S0:1234> Equivalent to the last example

But I found none of these two syntax works in my OBI200.

Can someone please help me here?

Do these hotline syntax require some special "DigitMap" field value in the "Physical Interfaces -> PHONE Port"?

My OBI200 firmware is 3.2.1 (Build: 5757EX)

That <:number> construct goes into the PHONE port digit map as an addition. Insert

<:number>|

immediately after the opening ( . The number will then be subject to the routeing rules in the PHONE port OutboundCallRoute just as if you had manually dialled it.  (Use the actual number after the colon.)

Are you sure you want a hotline?  Using a "warmline" introduces a delay which lets you dial a different number or gives you a chance to put the phone back on-hook if accidentally knocked off.

<S5:number> will dial the number after 5 seconds if nothing is dialled.  Change the 5 to your liking.
