Dial By Name

Dial By Name

Dial By Name

Hello everyone,

I have an IP Office 412 ver. 2.1.24 and for some reason my dial by name stopped working.  When you get the Attendant the *1 option shoule be Dia By Name.  When you dial *1 it gives an error tone like the phone has benn off the hook for sveral minutes.  I double checked to make sure that the Dial by name box was ticked in Manager, System, and it is.

Anyone have a solution?

RE: Dial By Name

what i have noticed is when you  create a mailbox and in propmts you to record your name, if you don't record a name in that field then the directory listing for that extension will not come up. Even if you have it programmed.
   Hopefully this may help.

RE: Dial By Name

We have been using it for over two years without a problem.  I'm not sure what happened.

RE: Dial By Name

Are all your links or lines correct connecting to the Dial by Name box?? If so could someone have accidently changed the WAV file for that box and recorded the wave-off tome there??  I mention that cause I just had a customer do something very similiar

RE: Dial By Name

Have you rebooted the computer/restarted the services?

RE: Dial By Name

No.  I can do that tonight.  I also deleted the links and reconnected them in the module.

Is there supposed to be an entery prompt?  I have none in the module for Dial by name.

RE: Dial By Name

no prompt is needed unless you want one, sometimes when you make changes you need to stop and restart the service. It takes a few moments and maybe you could do that during a slow period

RE: Dial By Name

OK now it just disconnects the call after hitting *1 for Dial By Name.

RE: Dial By Name

Yes I have rebooted and restarted the services

RE: Dial By Name

It still disconnects immediately after hitting *1  even after upgrading to 2.1.35.
