Wow.. can I just second the motion for better account creation/managment control.

 

- CSV import would be huge! ...just finished keypunching 95 new accounts. :)

 

- a search mechanism within the account section would also be helpful

 

Thanks!

Your wish has been fulfilled. It is included in the next 3.0 release. Though it is sooo flexible the documentation will not be easy.

 

And the account index shows the real account names now. No more searching for accounts.

Importing accounts will need some additional functionality in the real world. With a soon to be real installation of 100+ accounts, we'll need to have these accounts members of predefined ACD and HUNT groups and many will have DID numbers.

 

We'd like to import from an Excel file extension accounts with first, last, ext, aliases, etc

ACD with aliases (as many as 100) 1st, 2nd, 3rd call stages, what extensions can join

HUNT GROUP members and call stages

 

What might make sense is the creation of a MASTER excel spreadsheet (Template) for use by all that can be imported by a dedicated function within PBXnSIP. We use a similar tool in our service desk software package. The developers created a series of EXCEL spreadsheets for project, client info, etc...

 

Designing how a PBX should work is far easier on a peice of paper and this is something the client can sign off on, and once completed any changes can be made as a change request. ($$) changes cost money.

Well, the bulk import feature does exist - check out http://wiki.pbxnsip.com/index.php/Creating_New_Accounts. You can use Excel to create the list. Before you can put that into the input form, you need to export it as CSV. Then you can easily copy and paste that into the form on the web. There is still some "manual" work required; however significantly less than punching the information in one by one. Plus you have the flexibility to import also settings like cell phone numbers, MAC addresses.
