Ivr dial external number

I would like to program the Asterisk IVR to dial our corporate office.

For example, please 2 to dial customer service and when pressed it would dial “9 18005551212”.

How can I do this? - what is the syntax that I need to add to the extensions.conf to have it dial an external phone number?

It depends on the outbound trunks you have available to make outbound calls. Just google for “dial cmd asterisk” and study what shows up and combine that with the actual trunk that you have available (sip/iax2/zap). If this isn’t clear please post a new question.

we have 4 analog trunks - anybody know the syntax?

It looks like we have this one figured out.

Thanks for the assistance.
