When calling a hunt pilot, an internal caller will see the name of the first member of the line group that the call is currently ringing, even if the line group is set to broadcast ring to all members. Of course, this leads to confusion as the caller thinks the hunt group is forwarded to a single user.
In order to put a name on the group, I have to make a extension (I use * plus the hunt pilot DN) and set the alerting name to "xxxxx group". Unfortunately, this requires a physical key on a phone (CTI rt points, deleted DNs, and unregistered phones won't work, as they don't "ring" and report their alerting DNs back), and this site has about 30 hunt groups, so I'd be looking at a 7960 and 2 7914s.
Does anyone have any ideas on building a fake extension that doesn't use any hardware, but acts like it is ringing (reports back its alerting name when called, etc)?
