I have the need to do the following, and thought I found something to do this, but did not bookmark it.
I need to do the following.
I have three locations with SIP extensions off an * server which works very well. At location number 1, there are three extensions, and at location #2 there are two extensions, and at location #3 there is one extension.
Lets call then A-1, A-2, A-3, B-1, B-2, and C-1
What I want to have happen is an incoming call rings on the first available extension at each location. For example the first call would ring at A-1, B-1, and C-1. Whoever gets the call owns the call at that point. Say for example someone is talking on A-1, then the call should ring on A-2, B-1, and C-1. If someone is talking on A-1, and B-1, and B-2, then the call should only ring on A-2, and C-1.
I know I could use a simple Dial command with all the extensions listed, but that means that every line will ring which makes no sense. I can write a simple script to try each extension sequentually, but that does not allow it to ring at the same time in multiple places.
How do I “split” the dialing so that I can seperately dial multiple what I would call “hunt groups”?
Thank you for your assistance.
