How to use Confirm Call?

When a call is received, a pre-set action (usually entering a password) can be required in order for the call to go through. This feature also allows a recipient of the call to confirm the identity of the caller or some other piece of information before answering/ignoring the call.

How to setup "Confirm Call"

  1. Go to [PBX]>[Voice Prompts]>[System] and upload an audio file for the "Confirm Call". For example, you can upload a prompt file and give it the name "confirmcall".
  2. Go to [PBX]>[ARS], create a new ARS for the "Confirm Call" or add "Confirm Call" to any existing ARS.
  3. At "Patterns – OUT" in the ARS, you will see a "Confirm" parameter. If you want to use "Confirm Call" for some users, use [Matching patterns] to filter for those users, then add a value to the parameter "Confirm". You need to enclose the value of the "Confirm" parameter with curly brackets, "{" and "}".
    • If you want to use the audio file "confirmcall" which you just uploaded in step 1, you should write {confirmcall} in the "Confirm" parameter.
    • If set {confirmcall}{name:&f1} in [Confirm] parameter, callee can hear your phone number after the voice prompt. In this case, you need to set [From] in the Matching patterns, e.g. sip:(.*)@
  4. Specify the key to press for "Confirm Call". The parameter "Key" next to the parameter "Confirm” specifies which key is used to confim calls. The default key is 5.
