Dialing Multiple Channels With Confirm

I’d like to dial two extensions (or external number) and ask for confirmation to accept the call.

Dialing an extension, asking for confirmation and then dialing a second extension if the call has not been accepted is easy by using the dial option U(…), but if I dial two extensions at once, when the first answers, the other stops ringing.

Any idea to make the first continue to ring until the other accept the call?

  • Thinking about it I don’t think you want to do what you are asking, It sounds to me like you would create a race condition.

    Otherwise what happens when the Person A answers and accepts the call and Person B also answers and accepts the call?

    Which channel do you bridge your call with? Person A or Person B?

    You could use a Round Robin Memory queue with LOCAL channels to connect the logic and make things work.
