Example of use and reason we need this?

I don't understand the use here either.  Seems like the extra digits could be gathered by extensions.conf handling before calling Dial

How should it be done in Extension Conf handling (do you mean at channel driver level ??? ) It is in App Dial so, every technique can make use of Inter Digit Timeout.

Think About this scenario:

There is a Call with an extension 004933 , at extension.conf level it is decided which carrier to use with this base extension. The Problem is the Number isn't complete. The next Problem is, the decided Carrier (which is indeed the cheapest one) does neither support Inter Digit Timeout, nor Overlap Dial.

The only solution I see is adding Inter Digit Timeout to App Dial.


You see I need to find out the right Carrier in extension.conf, but don't have a complete Destination Number  (sounds like an often existing Problem).

No one Interested in this feature ?

HouseKeeping - Lack of interest, plus, It doesn't appear to be relevant, seeing as that Dial should never be called from extensions.conf unless the dialed number is complete.
