Exit Call Queue By Pressing Digit

I want a caller who is waiting in the queue to be able to exit this queue (and the waiting) by pressing a digit.

I read in the wiki :

//; A context may be specified, in which if the user types a SINGLE
digit extension while they are in the queue, they will be taken out of the queue and sent to that extension in this context.//
//This is the context that is used to allow the caller to exit with a key for further action. For example, press “1” to leave a message/

So I fill in the ‘context’-parameter with a value ‘queueexitdigit’.

In extensions.conf I have a context [queueexitdigit].

But when I test this and press a key (for example 5) while I’m waiting in the call queue, nothing happens ! I’m still in the call queue… waiting.

Which part of the configuration am I missing ?

Kind regards, Jonas.
