In last week’s FreePBX® Technical Series we reviewed the current ring strategies: ringall, hunt and memoryhunt. We clarified the mystery of the “-prim” postfix on these and discussed some subtle behaviors between DND implemented in FreePBX® (server side) versus locally on the phone. This week we will review some up and coming Ring Strategies and fill you in on a secret to enable the voicemail busy message when your multi-line phone is never actually busy.
This week’s FreePBX® Technical Series will discuss the different Ring Group and Follow-Me ring strategies in FreePBX® 2.2 and what is coming next. The basic modes will be discussed and the question: “What is that –prim” version of all the strategies?” will be answered. Next week, new enhancements and new Ring Strategies that are forth coming will be described (or available now if you are adventurous and like to run the development branch).
I apologise for the total lack of involvement I’ve had over the past couple of months, and I’d really like to publically thank Philippe for carrying the torch while I’ve been unavailable. But, I do have a good reason, and I should fill everyone in on what’s been going on and where I’ve been.
