Enter ID through phone keys

Hi everyone,

I’m kinda new to asterisk, and I just started playing with the configuration files. I was wondering how I can make asterisk, after accepting a call on a specific extension, accept a number (fixed length) and store it in a variable. A message like “Please enter your ID” is played, and asterisk should read that ID, is that possible?

Also, I would be grateful if someone could point me to a good source of asterisk documentation.

Thanks a lot for reading my first post :smile:
See ya!

Lot of info at this site


Thanks rusty!
But, can you give a hint which application I should be looking up?

Thanks again for the quick resposne.

look up Read() and SayDigits()
