Using the originate command

So I’ve been successfully using originate through a python api to allow click-to-call functionality for our employees. It’s been working great but it has a small flaw, it can’t dial extensions. I would really like to find a way to introduce pauses and extension dialing but nothing i’ve tried seems to work.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to dial extra numbers after placing a call through originate?

What you actually mean is that it cannot work through automated attendants.

The general solution to complex calling with originate is to originate to a local channel, allowing the full dialplan logic to be used for the first party.

Thanks for the quick reply.

I’ll toy around with that and see what I can come up with.
