    3CX has effectively made it necessary for all 3CX customers to upgrade to 3CX 15.5 SP6. While it is “possible” to continue to run older versions of 3CX, the risk of doing so makes it infeasible for a production environment. For those who have not heard, 3CX had to make changes to their activation servers (for security reasons). The changes mean that you can no longer activate 3CX servers older than V15.5 SP6.

  We were asked by a call center customer if Recording Manager could be configured to only record inbound external calls.  The answer now is “yes”.  While 3CX may still record all the calls, behind the scenes, Recording Manager can delete any recordings made of calls that are not inbound external calls.

Our Linux development efforts started out slow, but recently the pace has quickened and I’m truly excited to watch our progress unfold. Hang on, things are about to get a little crazy at VoIPTools (if it hasn’t already been crazy here for the last year or more). As one of the lead programmers here at VoIPTools

  Keeping track of phone calls in the 3CX Call Control API is a messy business. It’s been particularly challenging getting our dialer to work in all environments. One of the challenges was making outbound calls, getting the resulting unique 3CX call ID, playing the correct prompt, and then transferring the call. The complexity of this process was compounded by the need to control the outbound caller ID, and handling the prepending and stripping of

Finding time is always a challenge for me.  But I thought it might be beneficial for me to highlight whenever we add a new feature to one of our products here in my blog.  Let’s see if I can make this a habit. Robo Dialer:  We have been working hard on the dialer to make it more efficient.  One of the recent changes was to eliminate the use of some of the CFD applications and
