Fanvil transfer to voicemail using dsskey ...



  • I've been playing with a fanvil phone and the only thing I can't seem to make work like I want is transfer to voicemail with the dsskey.

    On our system the transfer to voicemail code is #<ext>. This seems to be working fine if I directly key in the extension. However, what I'd like to do is be able to in place of dialing the extension, is be able to hit the dsskey of the extension instead. So #<hitDSSkey>. When I do it this way though I simply get a straight blind transfer to the extension but not direct to voicemail.

    Here is the configuration of the key on the phone :

    The fourth column (BLF/BXFER) I thought maybe I could change this to BLF/DTMF but that didn't seem to have any affect.

    I know Fanvil's are kind of new but has anyone who has tried one know how to program the transfer to voicemail on the dsskey's?

    Thanks



  • I do not know of any way to do it with only a single keypress.

    For sending calls to voicemail directly, I make a prefix key.
    The prefix key labeled "To VM" has the dial code. * by default in FreePBX, and in your case, it would be #.

    Then teach the operator this method:

    1. Press Xfer
    2. Press To VM
    3. Press BLF

    This works on both Yealink and Fanvil.

    This didn't work on my system. Do you know what firmware version is on your phone? I notice mine looks pretty old actually so I think I'll upgrade to the latest and see if that is part of my issue.

    It was a firmware issue for me as well. I was on 1.10.x and upgraded to 2.2.11 and after that it worked exactly as you described above.

    Thanks for the help!

    This is a yealink - right?
    There is no option for Prefix under type for Fanvil.
