We’ve recently, in the last year, installed a FreePBX system with a client. We’ve been informed the *80XXX feature code does not seem to work. Only rings the extension. Should auto answer and be placed on speaker.
In the phone’s Account > Intercom Settings > Allow Auto Answer by Call-Info/Alert-Info is set to Yes, the remainder is set to no, and no Alert-Info for the Auto Answer field.
This is set the same on my desk phone, same model.
I’ve read, and confirmed in the FreePBX feature codes, *54 is to allow intercom, however when used on their phones, it redials the last number called out from that phone. I don’t see that mentioned in any search result. On my phone, I hear the Intercom Enabled.
*80, *54, and *55 are default and enabled on the server.
We’d rather not setup paging groups, just for one to one (bi-directional) extension paging.
