Send call to voicemail

I am trying to find a solution for sending an incoming call to voicemail by hitting a button.
So here is the sequence.

  1. phone rings.
  2. I press a button
  3. phone system sends the call to voicemail.

I am running asterisk 1.8.11.
Thanks for the help.


It’s something you can do with Digium phones pretty easily. You would need to be running the -cert branch of 1.8 (or just regular 11) and have a Digium phone though. You’ll also want some dialplan magic. See - … lVoicemail


Are you using Digium phones or another type of phone?
