We currently run a live FPBX 2.11 (yes I know it’s ancient) which I am in the process of manually migrating to FPBX16
On our existing live system I have a custom script that runs when someone sets a forward. We do this as the endpoints are unable to show whether a system forward has been set or not. We chose to go down the email route as a visual indication to the user.
We utilise the iSymphony email address field in the Extensions tab on a per extension basis. This is stored in the database. My script queries the database and pulls the email and off it goes. The problem I am facing is with the new system. There’s no longer any field suitable on a per extension basis to set this, not even a generic text ‘notes’ field that I could use.
The voicemail email field is greyed out if Enabled is NO. I tried the DID Description field but anything I put in here seems to be wiped out if no actual DID or CID is entered. I tried the Dictation Services email address field but this does not seem to be stored in the database and any other available field would break something if I put in a random email address.
Does anyone have any thoughts on how I could achieve this again, it works very well for us at the moment.
