Is it possible to start monitoring before dialing?


Is it possible to write the dialplan in a way that recording a call starts as soon as Asterisk starts dialing a number ?

I’m using starpy and sometimes out of 150 calls, I get one call that’s marked as “failed to originate”. I did some searching around and people say it’s because the callee did not answer the call. I’m not convinced and was wondering if channel Monitor can be started as soon as we start dialing a number. I’m using T1. I have another server using POTS lines and it does not encounter this issue.

Please let me know if you have suggestions.
