T26P programming questions - edlentz - 10-19-2014 04:51 AM

Is it possible to change the message key to a BLF key to show a hint. I have a hint that I have for a voicemail that will be not associated with the phone user. I have installed Freepbx v2.11 and it is in Device and User mode. The application is in a Dr office and I want to have a visual indication when a message is left in a mailbox. The Dr office has 2 phones for the secretary and the nurse. The mailbox will be for prescription refills. They will not be using the voicemail box for their user account at all. They want one voicemail box and have it show up visually on both phones.

Any suggestions greatly appreciated

Definitely possible but you have to make sure your FreePBX box is generating mailbox hints. I know older versions of FreePBX did not do this, but I think I saw a news update a while ago saying they had finally implemented the feature. Easiest way to check is to SSH into your box and do
asterisk -rx "core show hints"
Make sure there is one for your "phantom mailbox". (hopefully it will be something like *98221@app-dialvm).

Then just use that value *98221 (or whatever it is) in your BLF value field on the phone, and you're all set.

Google of course is always handy:

Thanks jolouis for the reply. I got that far, and I would like to push it further. The "Message" key has a value field, but alas it doesn't appear to be a BLF type of key. Is it possible to change that key into a BLF? I am thinking of using that key if possible so I can keeo the 10 programmable keys for other things.

Thanks again

Hi Edlentz,

Sorry for late reply.
No, the message key is not programmable. There is no a configuration to change the Key type.
