Lan calls to play back recordings

Hi All,

I’m very new to Asterisk ( about 24 hours into testing it), and have installed the FreePBX Distro,

I’m using a Greandstream HT-702.

I have configured the server and phone to communicate and have set it up as extension 1111.

I need to be able to dial preset numbers from the phone to allow for recordings to be played back via to the phone.

I have my recordings on the server and I can make the server call the phone to make new recordings.

So I guess my question is, Can I make extension numbers that go directly to recordings then the phone hang up?

If so I would very much appreciate a guide or directions to a guide.

secondly can I have the phone ring at a set time and a recording be played to the phone.?

Thankyou in advance

For asterisk, yes. FreePBX, I have no idea. You may be better off asking in their forum.

Dial a number, playback a file, and hangup:
exten => 1234,1,Answer()
same => n,Playback(filename-to-play)
same => n,Hangup()

For triggered dials, I’d use call files or AMI to originate a call. You can write a side program and schedule it via the crontab.

Thankyou mkozusnic.

That’s pretty much what I have been trying. and at least I know I’m on the right lines.

I’m trying to make this user friendly to some extent for a group project, hence FreePBX.

I will see if their forums have any solutions that are native to the GUI.
