Invite a group of extensions to a conference

I’m considering whether to use FreePBX or an off-the-shelf box from Draytek for a VoIP network with quite a few locations. In addition to being able to call any location on the network, the main feature we’re interested in is being able to initiate a conference call from any station that automatically rings all the extensions in the group and adds them to the conference when answered. Is this possible with FreePBX?


It certainly is possible with FreePBX. Check out our wiki with the many features of FreePBX. It is ideally suited for multi-site deployment.

I don’t believe there’s any way to do this without writing your own dialplan. Asterisk definitely has the capability but to the best of my knowledge there’s nothing builtin to FreePBX that takes advantage of it. Maybe someone else knows differently?
