Difference between follow-me group and ring group =?

Is there really a functional difference between a follow-me group and a ring group?

Seems like both are intended to ring two or more extensions, either simultaneously or sequentially, when a number is dialed. The structural difference is that a ring group uses up an extension number (the ring group number) whereas a follow-me group does not.

I have several ring groups that look like they could as well be follow-me groups and save a few extensions (which we’re running a bit low on). Am I missing something that could cause an issue?


These are FreePBX concepts. Ask on http://community.freepbx.org/

The ringroup will ring immediately, the extensions in the followme list will ring after the initial extension hasn’t answered the call. And yes this is something FreePBX does so you will have etter luck in their forum.
