Asterisk Announces Queue Position if announce= is enabled


#1

I want a periodic announce but I don’t want Asterisk to announce the queue position. It seems to enable itself automatically by using “announce=”

Can anyone solve this or is there another flag to explicitly disable queue position announcements?

From console:

queues.conf:

music=default
strategy=ringall
timeout-15
retry=5
periodic-announce=queue-thankyou
periodic-announce-frequency=10
announce=thank-you-cooperation
wrapuptime=0
maxlen=0
announce-frequency=10
announce-holdtime=no
announce-position=no

I am using 1.09 Stable it seems the “period-announce” only works in other versions.


#2

It seems that if announce is on then it will always tell the queue position.

Can someone explain how you can make flags like “periodic-announce” work?

I have them both enabled but they are not working at all.

I just want a message (other than queue position/time) to be announced every so often.

thanks

Is this the configuration that you are using in your queues.conf?
