Description:The only I can do for an incoming call is taking it to an extension, no more. This is not enough in any Asterisk I've installed.

For example, a very very simple and common dialplan behaviour from telco line could be:

   exten => s,1,Dial(SIP/200,30)
   exten => s,n,Dial(SIP/201,30)
   exten => s,n,VoiceMail(500)

Is there any way of doing something like this in AsteriskGUI? the only I can get is:

   include = default
   exten = _X.,1,Goto(default|200|1)
   exten = s,1,Goto(default|200|1)

that is never enought IMHO.

This is not true,

the GUI allows the incoming calls to be routed to
* Local User extensions
* Standard Extensions like VoicemailMain or Queues or Conference Rooms
* or even to time based rules or Voicemenus

Ok, so could you explain me how to implement this simple dialplan for all incoming calls from my zap telco via GUI?

    exten => s,1,Dial(SIP/200,30)
    exten => s,n,Dial(SIP/201,30)
    exten => s,n,VoiceMail(500)

I have been long time trying to implement this simple dialplan with the GUI and just don't know how.

Please, considere constructive my suggestion, I'd really like to be wrong but don't think so ;)

The gui now has options to define "Ring groups" by 'ring all' or 'ring in sequence'. Options to forward incoming calls to a ring group is also added.

in future - If you want new features added to the GUI, please post requests to the gui mailing list and your request(s) will be added to the todo.txt in the gui.
