THIS WIKI HAS BEEN UPDATED FOR VERSION 13 OF YOUR PBX GUI

Commercial Module

Note

This wiki is for the Pro version of the Pin Sets module. For the standard version, see Pin Sets-Admin Guide.

Overview

The Pin Set Pro module is used to create and manage lists of PINs (numerical passwords) that can be used to access restricted features such as outbound routes. The PIN can also be added to the CDR record's "accountcode" field.

This module also gives you the power to enable pinless dialing on a per route basis for any extension.

Additionally, you can generate downloadable reports that include call details and summaries of billable hours.

Logging In

  • In the top menu go to Settings
  • In the drop-down menu go to PIN Sets

Creating a PIN Set

In the PIN Sets home screen, click the Add PIN Sets button.

PIN Set Description

A description of the PIN Set to help you identify it. (Max 50 characters)

Record in CDR

Yes/No: Whether to record the PIN in the call detail records. If Yes, PIN numbers dialed will be recorded in CDRs so you can view them in the CDR Reports module.

PIN List

A list of one or more PINs. Enter one PIN per line.

Save

Click the Submit button, then click the Apply Config button.

Your new PIN Set will show up in the list on the module's home screen.

In our example, we have created a PIN Set that we will use in conjunction with an international outbound route.

Linking a PIN Set to an Outbound Route

Now that you have created a PIN Set, you can link it to an outbound route. This wiki assumes you have created an outbound route. For more information on outbound routes, please see the Outbound Routes Module User Guide.

Navigate to the Outbound Routes module:

  • In the top menu go to Connectivity
  • In the drop-down menu go to Outbound Routes

Click the edit button  for the outbound route you wish to edit.

In our example, we will edit our SIPStation International route.

Click the Additional Settings tab for the route.

Look for the PIN Set option. The default is None. Select a PIN Set from the drop-down menu.

This tab may look different for you, depending upon whether Class of Service is enabled. Look for PIN Set at the bottom.

In our example, we will choose our International Route PIN Set.

Click the Submit button, then click the Apply Config button.

Now, any time someone dials out via this outbound route, the system will prompt the user to enter a PIN number. The system will match the entered PIN against this PIN Set. If it does not match, the call will not be completed, and the user will be prompted to enter a PIN again.

Editing a PIN Set

From the module home screen, click the edit button for the PIN Set you wish to edit.

When finished making changes, click the Submit button, and then click the Apply Config button.

Deleting a PIN Set

From the module home screen, click the trash button for the PIN Set you wish to edit. Or, if already viewing the PIN Set, click the Delete button.

Click the Apply Config button.

Note that any outbound routes that were using the deleted PIN Set will no longer use a PIN Set.

Configuring Pinless Dialing

By default, if you link an outbound route to a PIN set, all extensions will be required to enter a PIN in order to use that route. However, you may wish to allow certain users, such as your CEO, to dial out a route without entering a PIN. Pin Set Pro allows you to edit the settings of an individual extension in the Extensions module to enable pinless dialing on a per route basis. An extension with pinless dialing enabled for a route will not be prompted to enter a PIN number for that route.

This wiki assumes you are familiar with the Extensions module. For more information on Extensions, please see the Extensions Module wiki.

Navigate to the Extensions module:

  • In the top menu go to Applications
  • In the drop-down menu click Extensions

Click the edit button for the extension you wish to edit.

Click the Other tab for the extension.

Look for the Pinless Dialing section. This section will contain a list of outbound routes as well as Yes/No switches.

We have three routes in our example. Your list may differ.

Click the Yes button for the route(s) for which you would like to enable pinless dialing for this extension.

For example, we have selected Yes (dark blue) for the SIPStation-INT route. This means this extension will NOT need to enter a PIN to access the international route.

Click the Submit button, then click the Apply Config button.

PIN Sets Code Reports
