Can I do this?

New to asterisk …

I’d like to have my system place a telephone reminder to someone. For example … say you book an appt with a doctor. Well, i’d like my system to call the user a day ahead of time as a reminder. Actually, a day, a week, etc …

Then have them press 1 to confirm or 2 to cancel (with pre-recorded messages set for each).

Can someone point me in the right direction?

Sure you can do it. Have a look at “the book” You will need to write some AGI scripts to set this up. It should not be hard to do with PHP Agi. You can also code in perl and some other languages.

Like Dovid said… in voip-info there’s a wakeup.php script that can handle this.
