Feature Codes and phone key timing

I’ve noticed that Asterisk is quite fussy about how quickly you press keys on the phone keypad, for example transferring a call using *2. Press it too quickly and it fails, too slow and it fails. Great if you get the speed of hitting * and then 2 just right. Is there any way to make things a little more forgiving?


I don’t know if your case is the same as mine, but I thought that the first time that I use call transfers, in my case I had to enable the features like this:

blindxfer => #1     ; Blind transfer  (default is #)
disconnect => *0        ; Disconnect  (default is *)
automon => *1           ; One Touch Record a.k.a. Touch Monitor
atxfer => *2            ; Attended transfer
parkcall => #72                ; Park call (one step parking)

And then in extensions.conf


exten => s,1,Set(DYNAMIC_FEATURES=${FEATURES}) ;here and everywhere I need features

Yes, in features.conf check the “transferdigittimeout” and “featuredigittimeout” parameters.

Excellent, featuredigittimeout=3000 worked a treat.
