Ringing multiple extensions: 1 ext. and 2 handsets?


#1

An employee roves between two offices. I would like to be able to dial one extension and have it ring both phones. Is there a more elegant way of doing this besides using two extensions: Dial(SIP/phone1&SIP/phone2)?

My dialplan makes extensive use of templating through includes files and macros. Having to hack something together for a single employee would make the dialplan harder to maintain.

Is using a variable an option? In the global section you define:

ROAMING_DUDE=SIP/phone1&SIP/phone2

and then you

DIAL(${ROAMING_DUDE})

Thanks for the reply. I will look into it. :wink:
