Description:We needed to use first name in our directory application, so we recorded a custom message and revised the order of the names in our voicemail.conf file. When recomiling asterisk, it replaced our custom message, causing confusion with customers and general grief. A way to configure directory to use first, last or either name would be tremendously helpful.


If implementing configuration for firts, last or either name, you will need additional Allison recordings.

This will allow directoryintro= in voicemail conf to point to a custom directory intro so that your intro isn't overwritten during install. voicemail.conf.sample diff coming right up

Additional requests for Directory improvements are in bugnote 0001469 although no one has picked up the ball.  I have looked into it but have little C programming experience.

I added this into CVS, but did it a little differently.

Sorry to reopen, but a little clarification would be helpful:

Does this allow for custom messages and for directory by first, last or full name?

Also, does it add an explicit "escape hatch" from directory? It's not clear that you've got to wait for digit timeout to get out of the directory right now.

Does it add a "press 0" to reach the operator?

It would so be nice if the number of digits are more variable.  I run into the situation all the time here where I don't know how to spell the name so I just enter the first digit instead of 3.  Yes my list of possibilities get much larger but I can then find them.

This only allows custom greeting to dir-intro you can include how you want the directory matched in your conf file.  Just reverse lastname firstname.
