Group call handling, Ring before message,

Ok here it goes.

Have a special need for a group.
My boss want (for some reason) that the welcome message don’t start playing imediatly, but that the caller first gets 2 normal rings.
Then the normal “welcome to bla bla bla bla please hold bla bla” message plays.

I guess a custom_app is in order, but what to do with the 2 inital rings? is there a “playback_ring,2” function :stuck_out_tongue:



:laughing: :laughing: :laughing:
Just record two rings before Welcome bla bla
:laughing: :laughing: :laughing:
Then if somebody wants to enter he will listen two rings :smile:

hehe was thinkin about that… just felt that it was a less than elegant way to solve it :stuck_out_tongue:

actually was thinking something like this…

Exten => s,1,Answer

Exten => s,2,Ringing

Exten => s,3,Wait,4

Exten => s,4,Playback(custom/welcome)

Any1 that could tell if this is in the dircetion of a solution… ?

that actually did the trick…
