|Summary:||ASTERISK-01277: [request] Voicemail Rewind Functionality|
|Date Opened:||2004-03-23 08:32:39.000-0600||Date Closed:||2011-06-07 14:04:57|
|Description:||Many voicemail systems are able to rewind a few seconds rather than to the beginning of the message. In order for Asterisk's voicemail to be considered a suitable replacement for those voicemail systems it must be able to do the same. Ideally it should be managed with a default value for number of seconds to rewind but perhaps should also offer a user/administrator override for the amount of time to move the playhead back.|

I found this posting in the Asterisk-Dev list archive. Is it possible that it's implemented and undocumented?

BTW, this doesn't go back/forward by 5 seconds, but you can change
that. Look at file.c. I added the ast_waitstream_fr function. You
can change the time in that function. I will soon be adding that to
voicemail.conf, so you can change it easier.

It might look like I'm doing nothing, but at the cellular level I'm
really quite busy.

Oops! I see that * and # work quite well for fast forward and rewind. Please close this bug request.
