I am trying to use the FollowMe app that is part of * 1.4 to dial my cell if I am not at my desk. It does this by grabbing a Zap line and dialing. I seem to recall reading somewhere that there is no way for Asterisk to determine if a Zap line has been picked up by a remote user, so it assumes that once the line is grabbed, it is picked up.
The problem is that when it makes that assumption, it plays back the recording and prompts for input from my cell phone, but I never hear the message, as it has long since finished, and usually, it drops me to my Asterisk voicemail right as I pick up the line.
Is there a way to make the FollowMe app wait before it starts playing back the caller’s name and the options?
I’m going to take a look at the source real quick and see if there’s anything that sticks out.
Thank you for your time,
