callmanager 6.1 directory

Unanswered Question
Jun 4th, 2008

Is there anyway to have 6.1 callmgr prepend a digit(s) to the directory number.

Calls to inter-sites need to be dialed with a '91' in front of full e.164 extension number. I'm loooking for a way that when users use the phone's directory they can just hit the dial softkey to make call, without having to edit beforehand.

Can directory lookup dial rules do this?

thanks

Rob

I have this problem too.

they will use translation patterns to allow intra-site 4-digit dialing. this would disallow call if for example user has 40xx range... user he wants to dial is at 4043642121. when he dials 4043 the above trans pattern will grab call and send him to 4043.

Reason is same as why its recommended to use access code(s).

Would the directory lookup dial rule work in this situation? From reading the documentation, it looks like directory lookup rules are just for the attendant console.
