Hi y’all,

is there a possibility from within asterisk to write CDR into can
ical-calendar? Being a (part time) IT-Support-Monkey for almost two decades
and probably brain-dead since the late 90ties, i usually can’t remember to
whom i’ve talked to yesterday, let alone a week ago ;). If i could see the
calls as a meeting in outlook/thunderbird, this could be extremely
helpfull. I guess i can whip up a perl script that read’s some cdr (csv or
sql) and send’s it to ical, but that would not be as nice as if asterisk
would directly insert a meeting into ical right after the call ended… Off
course, i used google, but all that turned up was hint’s how to do cdr, and
how to use calendars from the dialplan, but not if cdr can directly handle




One thought on - CDR into ical?

  • No, there is no support for storing CDRs into calendars, but you can
    certainly use res_calendar from the ‘h’ extension in your dialplan to
    store information about a completed call into a calendar of your
    choosing. In fact, I’m pretty sure an example of doing exactly this was
    published right after calendar support was added to Asterisk.
