THIS WIKI HAS BEEN UPDATED FOR VERSION 13 OF YOUR PBX GUI
The Web CallBack module allows you to easily add an HTML “Call Me” box to your website. Visitors simply enter their phone number to be connected with you, or a specific destination. The Web CallBack module allows you to specify a CID to be prepended, which alerts you that the call is coming from a specific callback. You can also set dial matches to specify which numbers users are able to call. Once you set the destination and save the changes, you will receive HTML code to paste into your website.
Navigating to the Web Callback Module
- Log into the PBX GUI
- In the top menu go to Applications
- In the drop-down menu go to Web Callback
Creating a Web Callback
Click the Add button to create a new web callback.
Enter a name for this callback.
If you want to prepend the caller ID name that will be displayed on your phones, you can do so here.
If you need to prepend the number that is dialed by your system (such as by adding a 9), you can do so here. This is a simple way of forcing these calls to use a specific outbound route.
Enter number patterns the user can dial, one per line. If the user enters a number that does not match one of your dial patterns, the number will be considered invalid. For example, you could define dial patterns of NXXNXXXXXX and 1NXXNXXXXXX to restrict dialing to only 10- and 11-digit numbers, and prevent dialing such things as international numbers, 7-digit numbers, 911, or extensions.
Dial Pattern Rules:
|X||matches any digit from 0-9|
|Z||matches any digit from 1-9|
|N||matches any digit from 2-9|
|[1237-9]||matches any digit or letter in the brackets (in this example, 1,2,3,7,8,9)|
|.||wildcard, matches one or more characters|
Select one of the icons to display on your website. (Dark blue background = selected.)
