  • Hi,
    have you tried to manage all with dialplane ?

    just an example:

    **exten => s,1,Dial (SIP/your_called_party,20)
    exten => s,n, Playback(music_message)

    In the first step the call is redirect to the configured called party
    and if without answer (busy, not logged, not answered) …
    … in the second step a music is played.

    You can also do other kind of job instead of ‘playback’ if you need.

    Hoping to have helped you, have a nice day
