I’m trying to see if there is a way that I can set an inbound route up that looks for multiple inbound caller id’s to check if they’re employees numbers, and then have it skip the IVR or Announcement and go straight to a ring group or extension. The only way I can figure out how to do it right now is the make multiple inbound routes listing a single cid for each inbound route. This wouldn’t be bad, but I have 50+/- numbers that I want to bypass the announcement of IVR.
Any help is appreciated, thanks!
Your factual statements are all correct.
In fact, I believe that this issue has been raised before.
I suggest you make a feature request.
There is a 3rd party module developed for this exact purpose. It is complex tho, so it may be just as easy to have 50 inbound routes. More discussion here: http://pbxinaflash.com/forum/showthread.php?t=9555
If the DID’s are sequential or have similarities you might be able to set up a pattern as the DID, for example if your DID’s were 222 222 22(00 through 49) you could set the DID as _22222222[0-4]X, if they are all over the place its to do the tedious thing and set up multiple inbound routes.
