Situation: FreePBX 14 system with EPM. Customer has 4 offices in 3 time zones. This leaves me with 3 templates for each brand.
Each office has, at a minimum, one model of Aastra phone and model of Polycom phone.
So now I am at 6 templates, 3 for Aastra and 3 for Polycom. Why? Because the timezone setting is in the template.
This is not too unmanageable. but unweildy.
But I also have some places with multiple models of Aastra phones. So if I want to globally change a button, I have to click on each phone in all three Aastra templates in order to make the changes everywhere.
I honestly have no idea of a better way to handle this than the current setup of EPM, but I wanted to start a discussion among people that do use EPM.
Maybe similar to basefile editing, you can choose to apply a button to more than one model at a time?
It would be your own problem to know that the button exists on all the models you choose.
