Suggestion: include => from-did-direct-custom

Hi
First I would like to thanks and congratulate the freepbx team who did an amazing jog to make asterisk an easy to use PBX software.

Here is a simple, not time-consuming, suggestion:

Would you please add this single line in extensions.conf , just after:
[from-did-direct]

include => from-did-direct-custom

The reason for this would be to allow users to add custom processing in the [from-did-direct] context to allow various actions.

In my case, i use the excellent Notify application from
http://www.mezzo.net/asterisk/app_notify.html

This extension displays the caller name and phone on all my LAN PCs and Macs.
The right place where this extensions should be applied is in the [from-did-direct] context.

As FreepPBX always overwrite the extension.conf, just adding this simple line, would really help users like me who needs a custom context.

best regards,

(sorry for my bad english)

you can do this now.

Create/add to extensions_custom.conf the following:

[from-did-direct]
include => from-did-direct-custom
include => ext-findmefollow
include => ext-local

This will override (replace) the current from-did-context with the new one found in the extensions_custom.conf file.

Hi fskrotzki

Thank you for the tips : it works perfectly.

You’ve made my day!

I agree it should be entered as you state it. File a bug report and that way it can be tracked and added easly…
