I followed the steps in the wiki to try out the beta and it works well. Two minor comments:
The installation process on the PBX has a lot of steps. A wizard would be nice!
Zulu desktop has a generic search field where you can pull up contacts as well as history using the same search field. I like that and it’s missing from the new client (you can search contacts or call log but not both at the same time).
Otherwise, I like it. Thanks to the team behind this.
Thanks for the comments @MAWalker. There’s a browsable parking lot app planned for near future, no ETA yet. The searchable contact manager based on a few characters already works like that now. Shared call history across all devices for the same user is a reality now for Sangoma Phone and the current Sangoma D/P series phones (not the EOL D phones). We are slowly working in that direction.
Since there a numerous suggestions here, figure I’d add one more. Call center call control buttons. At base login/logout and pause buttons. Ideally an interface that lets users login/out of specific or all queues, and on the admin side the ability to create and deploy multipule types of pause (lunch, off-line work, training, etc.). This is something that I have not found on any competitor really, and would be an easy way to uniquely upsell the product, as almost all use cases for me include some sort of queue.
I can start the Asterisk console no problem, however, I’m still unclear if/how that tells me whether I’m running 16certified or not - It seems to show the same version info as using ‘asterisk -rx “core show version”’
Can I respectfully suggest that maybe the Sangoma Phone install Wiki page could/should include a note to explain this (within the section about the installing one of these RPMs) for those of us that didn’t know this.
PS. I have a Sangoma POMP in relation to all my installations, however, I like to use the Community Forum to ask questions, find solutions AND have that shared with others. Is that not in the spirit of Open-Source projects & these community forums ?
