I have been searching for information about a feature on our old phone system. We are now using an Asterisk based system. Please help me locate the settings, or add-on for Asterisk.
In our old system, if a call went to voicemail, the phone would offer an option to listen to the voicemail as it recorded. If as you are listening you wanted to pick up the call, you could press another button and pickup the call, interupting the voicemail recording.
Is this a feature that already exists in Asterisk, or an add-on?
I would assumed from my experience, that it would be possible to retrieve a call that had gone to voicemail, as a voicemail box is like an extension. But can you listen realtime?
