Running FreePBX Distro 10.13.66-15 with Paging Pro 184.108.40.206 (commercial module enabled) and Paging and Intercom 13.0.25. Overall goal is to have a recording played when a key is pressed on the receptionist phone.
This does work as I created a page group and included extensions in it, but after the recording is played the reception phone is still connected to the page group extension and is broadcasting anything they say. Trying to find out how I can have the receptionist phone dial the page group and have the phone call end once the recording is done playing. I already configured the announcement in the page group to terminate call>hangup after it is done playing but that doesn’t seem to affect it.
I also have a snom PA1 to tie into exiting speaker system so this solution doesn’t need to be a paging group with multiple extensions if there is another way around it. It would seem that if I could play an announcement directly this would end the call, but the only way I have seen to invoke an announcement (with the terminate call included) is to have it tied to an extension or IVR. Would creating an IVR allow the play recording and terminate call I am looking for?
It looks like the same issue (more or less) was posted here Paging Pro announcements not hanging up in Nov 2016
