I finally figured how to call out.
When I call out to a landline or a mobile phone I want to leave a message with the person I’m calling, however I would like for them to identify themselves before playing the message.
So when I call I will ask them to enter a PIN number, if its correct I will play the message.
However, if they don’t pick up, and their voicemail answers, I would like to leave this message: “you have a message with us, please call us asap”.
So I need to know if a real person is answering the phone, or if their voicemail is picking up, because I need the system to do 2 different things.
So far I don’t see Asterisk allowing me to make this difference, it appears that it responds the same to both a real person and a voicemail and wont let me distinguish between the 2.
Is there a way I can tell the difference using Asterisk or maybe a third-party open source software?
I was reading this site:
And I haven’t been able to find any answers to this.
