AutoAnswer at a Phonebook entry



environment is VVX411 running


configured in hybrid mode, sfb + 2 sip lines.


we need urgently to implement the autoanswer / intercom feature in the following scenario:


local addressbook of phone is utilized by the -directory.xml file

rt parameter set to whatever


we need to activate auto-answer / intercom feature on some / all addressbook entrys,

means if addressbook entry then auto-answer, otherwise ring.


no chance to get the alert-info field utilized by pbx - this would be the easiest, i know.


any chance to solve this ?

thank you

Hello @stain ,


Welcome to the Poly Community.


There is currently no way to do this. You would need a feature request:
