Misc Application

I searched the tickets but couldn’t figure out where to mention this.

On the right you have a list of all the misc applications. It would be great as part of that overview on the right it showed the corresponding feature code.

It would be great if there was a simple way to assign an numerical extension to custom destinations.

I generally don’t code numeral extensions into the scripts I write and append to extensions_custom.conf. This way I can edit/manage/change the numerical extensions in a GUI /FreePBX environment.

exten => s,1,Answer
exten => s,2,System(/usr/bin/lynx -source -dump http://odeo.com/show/110741/4/download/CurrentWeather-.mp3 > /tmp/gbwx.mp3)
exten => s,3,MP3Player(/tmp/gbwx.mp3)
exten => s,4,hangup

I used to do that in a round about way setting up a ring group. For example I had Ring group 181 ring extension 181 for a ring time of 1 second. I set the Destination if no answer to the Custom App “custom-gbwx,s,1”

I also moded the IVR context to include the ring groups, as I wanted to be able to reach my ring groups and scripts from the outside.

It would be great if there was a streamline way to do this sort of thing.

Maybe under the extensions module a way to set one up as a custom destination?
