How do I know under which extension someone is parked?


I have a few Grandstream gxp 2010 phones. In my Asterisk-server I created a feature to park calls, like this:


parkext => 700
parkpos => 701-710
context => parkedcalls
findslot => first
parkingtime => 4500

This is supposed to park a call in the first available extension. Usually 701. If I understand correctly, Asterisk is supposed to tell me the extension where the call got parked. But when I use the transfer button on the Grandstream gxp 2010 phone, the call is just transfered, without informing me where it is transfered.

Does anyone know how I can fix this?


Use an attended transfer.

Could you explain that a little bit more? I’m still a rookie, when it comes to Asterisk and BPX-es in general :blush:

Thanks! :smiley:

Google suggests:

Yeah, I’ve been Googeling and reading some manuals myself, while waiting for an answer. I think I know how to make it work. I’ll still have to test it though :wink:

Thank you for your time and answer :smiley:
