Thanks for the attention to my measly problem.
frankb: My settings already include the # following the number to my cell i.e. the outgoing call
cynjut: This makes sense, but makes this setup impossible? I'd like Follow Me to work normally, for my main office extension. Since I'm only at the remote location a few days of the month, i'd like it to be just a remote extension that rings simultaneously with my main extension.
I'm surprised this doesn't work. My main line goes through an IVR and ring group and the follow me work fine on several extensions. Seems the second loop through a ring group kills the Follow me.
Inbound route>Ring group>IVR>Extension>VM WORKS
Flow with off-site extensions added:
Inbound route>Ring group>IVR>Ring group>VM DOES NOT WORK
I can't think of another route that would ring multiple extensions for one IVR user without a ring group. I tried adding two lines in the IVR for the same digit press (i.e. caller pushing "3" goes to two extensions) but that didn't work reliably.
