Direct to voicemail transfer with BLF in asterisk - T46G
We are looking to simplify transferring directly to voicemail. I'm using the T46g.

Lets say you have an operator (Sara) at extension 200, and want to transfer to the voicemail of extension 221 (Tony). In asterisk, the way to do this is to transfer the call to *221.

Right now my BLF's have the value of the extension number. Extension 221 BLF has a value of 221.

What I'd like to do is set up a direct to voicemail button (transfer + *), and use a BLF to choose what voicemail to go to (e.g. 221).

I can hit transfer than the BLF, but I can't even do transfer * than the BLF (a normal transfer occurs). I also can't use DTMF to do ##* than hit the BLF button. A normal transfer also occurs

If I hit transfer, and manually type in *221, it transfers to voicemail fine. I can also manually type in ##*221, and it also transfer to voicemail fine.

Is there any way to get this done where I have a DSS key and BLF key work together to do this?

I haven't found a way atleast with 3cx. I think the implementation of the dss key doesn't work that way...

RE: Direct to voicemail transfer with BLF in asterisk - T46G
Thanks for the reply.

Its a real shame if there is no solution to this. On our previous legacy PBX the operator panel BLF's were used for all sorts of functions along with the built in keys. We'd Park->BLF, Transfer->BLf, Direct to VM->BLF, Pickup->BLF, etc. It was all very useful. It's been a pain trying to work around these limitations. I really would like to avoid having people memorize feature codes and extension numbers (especially the operator with 80+ BLF's).

I guess I'll make a suggestion in the wishlist...

Sorry. We will add "transfer+prefix+BLF" in next major version.

Thanks. Any way to use the BLF's in conjuction with other DSS keys would be ideal. Asterisk users would all be very grateful...

RE: Direct to voicemail transfer with BLF in asterisk - T46G
what i do for this is set up a prefix button and use the * in it and label it with transfer to voicemail.
when the call needs to be transferred, hit that button and dial the number. should be that easy

Yeah that's how we have it now, but too much jumping around from screen to screen if you are not on that one where you have it listed, and for the same key press you can just add the * in front of the ext yourself. Best if one key does it all. Thanks for your input though. They are adding this feature in the next release which i was told in thread it should be on 9/15. Much awaited....
