Setting ANI per call

Recommended Posts

I have a prospect who needs to be able to set the ANI from his handset before each call. How can I set him up to be able to set the ANI on the fly from his handset.

I have the same issue. What is the logical resolution to this situation?

 

Thank you.

IMHO one way to deal with this is to use prefixes and then use the dial plan to select which trunk should be used for the call. We could think about adding a star code that set the ANI for an extension; but that has obviously not been done yet.

Depending on how many users require this, here's one possible word-around:

If your phone can handle multiple extensions, you could assign multiple extensions to an individual user; license-imposed limits permitting. Then, assign a different ANI to each extension. The prospect of multiple VM boxes could be unattractive; but that could be addressed by creating a group mailbox.

Obviously, this will not work if you have a license for ten extensions and you're already using 9 of them.
