EFK for in call DTMF

Hi to all,

 

We have set up the ability to park a call via in call DTMF so simply press *** will park a call.

We created an EFK to accomplish this to make it "easier".

efk.efklist.2.action.string="$FDialpadStar$$FDialpadStar$$FDialpadStar$"

I was wondering if technically using "dtmf" was th emore correct way of going bu this seems not to work. example:

efk.efklist.2.action.string="***$Tdtmf$"

Is there somehting wrong with my syntex or does asterisk not work with $Tdtmf$ or___?

 

Technically I think both should work..

 

Thanks!

Hello @SamF,

welcome back to the Polycom community.

Some or a couple of your old post(s) or reply(s) to them => here <= are still open / pending as you have not marked these as "Accept as a solution" or at least provided some form of feedback or answer.

If they are in this state nobody finding them via a community search will know if an answer or advice provided was useful and has maybe helped you.

Could you therefore kindly go over them and mark or answer as appropriate ?

If they are marked as "Accept as a solution" other users can find these easier and it helps them to utilise the community more efficiently. Please do not simply mark them without any type of feedback.

Re: EFK for in call DTMF

Hello @SamF,

 

without any form of logs we cannot comment.

 

The next step would be escalating this into our support organisation if the EFK FAQ examples are not sufficient or the logging instructions provided cannot be followed or do not help you.

In order to raise a support ticket you need to work with your Polycom reseller as they need to do this for you.

End Customers are unable to open a ticket directly with Polycom support.

If this is some sort of an Internet discounter providing your MAC address or your Polycom devices serial will enable us to look up who would be able to support you. This may not be who you purchased the Polycom device from.

If the unit is no longer within warranty please be prepared to Pay Per Incident / PPI. This is all outlined in detail here
