post dial

any one have instructions to page multiple groups in a scn using the post dial action in vm pro. I was told this works but am unable to get it working.

RE: post dial

What are you trying to page? A pre-recorded / canned message or something on-the-fly? Also, what are you paging to (analog station ports hooked up to an amp, SIP paging interfaces, digital/IP sets)?


For canned messages our typical use-case is an evacuation alert. We build a module that plays a greeting of "You are about to set off the big noisy siren. If this is a mistake hang up now. 3. 2. 1" then post-dial a .WAV of an air raid siren to PAGE:ext#. When the call hits the post-dial block you get a "Delivered" prompt played back to you. No reason you can't have multiple post-dials chained together. The person setting it off would just listen for 3 or 4 or 5 or whatever "Delivered" messages before disconnecting.

Or make one big group and page them all at once with a single post-dial.

This works for the Algo SIP Alerter if programmed for Device auto answers, the analog station port connected to an amp, and/or digtial/IP stations.
If your device requires ring voltage to trip (like a TAM-B) then you don't want to PAGE the post-dial, just put in the ext number, and you'll have to do the chain of them (I think).


For a one-off page, I'd think you would need to record a .wav then hit the post-dial block(s) pointing at that .wav.

RE: post dial

If I understand the question correctly. You can't send it to multiple groups. You have to be able to send it to a single destination that could include ext's across an SCN. The real trick is the 'ext' you send the post dial to is a short code setup to initiate the page(ie 888). Then the short code would be dial paging to the ext number of the target group. One thing to remember this is a function of a conference and has a limit of 64 users. If you have questions I can look up the exact stuff because I am pulling this from memory. It is in a config on my lab system and right now I am working from home.
