i realize there is support today for followme features built into PBX Manager. one key capability missing though that exists in app_followme is to dial a group of numbers simultaneously and allow any called part to answer and press "1" to "take" the call.

i've implemented app_followme by hand, but now need it supported within PBX Manager.

it would not be worth the time, given app_followme exists, to try to code this in script language

let's let thirdlane know we want this feature

pressing 1 to take the call is already built into pbx manager, its called call screening. Dialing a group of numbers simultaneously is also already build into pbx manager. Writing to config files from the user portal is not really a good solution, especially when the same code is used in the MTE build designed to support 10,000 phones. For the most part the user portal writes settings to the astdb. This is why followme.conf is not used and instead similar features are written into dialplan.

i understand your point about MTE and the user portal. dialing a group of numbers and allow any one to answer with press 1 is not supported, and that is the requirement. this could easily be an admin only function. the need is there and the need to allow an administrator manage is also necessary.

i wasn't suggesting replacing existing capabilities.

if you are running the latest version, then the press-1 feature is now part of the dialplan.
