Call Recording Reports
Many industries must record and archive calls for reasons related to customer satisfaction, employee evaluation and training, security, or legal compliance. Managing these recordings within Asterisk typically involves a lot of management time sorting and filtering call detail records to manually extract system call recordings.
Tired of searching the system call detail records for call recordings? Running out of storage on your system due to required archiving of call recordings? With the Call Recording Report module, you can view, sort, listen to, archive, and download all recorded calls on your system.
- View lists of recordings sorted by year, month and day
- Auto-archive calls recorded by Asterisk
- Download archives as .tgz files that can be opened using common tools like Winzip
- Directly listen to and download individual call recordings that exist on your system
- Automatically delete the oldest archive to control disk storage as new archives are created
- Automatically create a new archive on the first day of each month
- Send an automatically generated e-mail reminder when an archive is created
- Sort recordings by call type, source, destination, time or duration

Class of Service
The Class of Service Administration module provides granular control at the extension level to access and set permissions of specific calling features of your PBX. These features include Outbound Routes, Feature Codes, Ring Groups, Queues, Conference Rooms, Voicemail Blast Groups and Paging.
The Class of Service module for FreePBX allows you to restrict extensions from dialing the following destinations of your PBX.

The Conference Pro module is an add-on to the existing conference module found in FreePBX. This module allows end users to manage conference room settings from the user control panel. Admin users can also easily create conference room IVR’s and choose which conference rooms are a part of the conference room IVR.
Normally, to block extensions from using an outbound route, you either have to create a custom context for each extension you want to modify, or do the tedious work of creating custom dial plans. This method is slow. It is NOT easily replicated or easily checked for errors and omissions. It is not easily configured by novice users.
With our Extension Routing module, you can easily view which extensions are able to use specified routes and make changes by dragging and dropping extensions. You can customize your dial plan to enable or disable extensions with a swipe of a mouse.
Want to set up a public area phone that can dial local or internal numbers, but block it from making costly long distance or international calls? Want to completely block employees from your international routes if they don’t need international calling? You can do this with the Extension Routing module.

The Fax Pro module is a reliable, robust inbound/outbound faxing server. You simply enable faxing for any user on the system; then you point a phone number to specific fax user and let us answer the fax call.
Fax Pro adds functionality to the standard fax capabilities.
Users can send outbound faxes via a web interface by simply entering a phone number and uploading a PDF or TIFF file.
You can optionally set the outgoing fax to use a locally stored fax cover sheet and enter a personal message on the cover sheet.
What do I get as part of the Fax Pro package?
- Individual inbound fax to e-mail accounts for unlimited users
- Outbound faxing capability
- A simple web interface to manage inbound and outbound faxes
- Ability to store inbound and outbound faxes on the server for easy viewing and archiving
- A company-wide cover sheet that allows easy customization for each user
- Ability to configure and manage Asterisk T38 gateway options on each extension and outbound route to take advantage of this feature in Asterisk 10 and newer
With Park Pro, you’re no longer limited to one parking lot. You can add multiple parking lots to your PBX. This is useful for companies who run multiple locations on the same server or have multiple internal
Park & Announce Feature
The Park & Announce feature automatically announces parked calls to phones in a page group that you define. The system announces which slot number the user should dial to pick up the parked call. Any user
on the system can pick up the parked call. Optionally, the caller can leave a brief message that will be played as part of the announcement. This can be useful for announcing the caller’s name or other information you request from the caller.
- Create multiple parking lots
- Announce parked calls to a page group
- Allow callers to record a message to be played to the page group
- Control the maximum message length as well as the instructions played to the caller
- Prepend the parked call’s caller ID with text and/or the parking slot number
- Play up to three system recordings along with a parked call announcement
- Drag and drop the elements of a parked call announcement (system recordings, slot number, and caller message) to change the playback order
The Paging Pro module expands the existing Paging module to add the following features:
The system can notify a group of phones when a user dials a specific number, such as 911. Any page group can be linked in the outbound routes module. When a call is placed, a page will go out to the page group, notifying the group what number was dialed and which user dialed the number. Any page group user can dial *1 to barge into the call and speak.
Valet-Style Paging (Airport-Style)
The valet paging option records your page and sends the audio file to all the page group devices after you hang up. This option is available on a per-page-group basis. You can also tell the system to only use the valet option when someone dials a page group that is already in use.
With this option, the system plays a recorded message to the page group before the person making the page can start speaking.
You can define custom schedules to have the system page a group of devices and play a recording. This is a great replacement for school bell systems or lunch break buzzers, for example.
The SysAdmin Pro module adds additional functionality for PBX management to the included SysAdmin module.
DDNS – This module uses DDNS to track both the smart and external DDNS name and address.
Email Setup – With this module, you can set your SMTP server information to receive e-mail notification and voicemail to e-mail.
UPS Management – UPS management can be directly integrated into the PBX. This can be used to properly shut down the PBX in case of power loss. This module can also alert you to power-related issues.
Update Management – The Updates Management module allows you to check your current system version at a glance, view available updates, and schedule when updates will be applied to the system. You can also watch the upgrade process in progress.
Support VPN – You can create a VPN tunnel to the technical support team to give them access to your system. This tunnel is off by default, and you can start or stop it.
VPN Server – You can set up the PBX with a VPN server to allow your clients to connect directly to the PBX.
FTP Server – You can enable and disable an FTP server and set a username and password. This FTP server points to the /tftboot directory where all your phone configs are stored by End Point Manager.
Voicemail Notify lets you configure a voicemail notification to monitor a mailbox for new messages. When a caller leaves a message in that voicemail box, the system will call the recipients you have listed until one of them accepts responsibility for the message. The system will simultaneously call all the numbers listed in the first priority level. Then, if no one accepts the message, the system will call the numbers in the next priority level, and so forth, until it runs out of priorities to call. It will then retry the entire list if configured to do so.
You can optionally configure the system to notify you via e-mail when a voicemail notification is complete. You can customize the e-mail’s subject and body, and choose whether to attach the voicemail sound file to the e-mail.
Voicemail Notify Module Video
There is now an easy way for system administrators and managers to review all users’ voicemail settings in one place, as well as listen to all voicemails residing on the system.
Greetings & Settings
Allows you to quickly view the voicemail greetings and settings for each user, see who needs to record greetings, and see who is set up to receive voicemail to e-mail.
View & Listen to Voicemails
You can also see and listen to all of the voicemails residing on your system. Mailbox number, date, time, folder, caller ID, and duration are shown.
Once configured, the IM server can be used with any XMPP/Jabber-enabled client that is capable of configuring connections to the local or corporate servers, including iSymphony and the User Control Panel (UCP).
Current stable and beta versions of the PBX software includes Prosody, a modern, flexible communications server utilizing XMPP/Jabber for instant messaging and chat. The XMPP Pro module allows you to easily set up and configure the Prosody server domain as well as IM and chat users. XMPP (Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol) is a protocol for instant messaging and presence.
With the XMPP Pro module, you can easily create users directly within the User Management module. You can also control the domain name associated with your local server.
We have added a new XMPP web-based client to the User Control Panel (UCP), which is available in versions 12 and above of the PBX software. With XMPP Pro, you can give your UCP users access to a built-in XMPP chat window.
XMPP/Jabber allows you to use the same account and log in from multiple devices at the same time. For example, you might have an XMPP client at home, one at work, and one on your mobile phone, and all can be connected at the same time.
- Installation of PROSODY RPM (See the WIKI for instructions).
- FreePBX Distro 5.211.65 or newer preferred. Instructions for CentOS systems are available in the WIKI.

Outbound Call Limiting
Outbound Call Limiting
Does your company call consumers? Yes? Worried about fines from not complying with various local, state, and federal regulations placed on companies that call consumers? Whether your company makes collections calls, sales calls, or telemarketing calls, you need to place limits on the number of calls made to consumers in order to avoid government fines for harassment, which can be in the thousands of US dollars per call in some cases.
We have developed an Outbound Call Limiting module that allows you to place restrictions on how may times a number is called during a certain time period. For example, if you have an outbound route for California-based numbers and have outbound call limiting in place on that route, the module would only allow you to make the allowed number of calls to any specific number in California. When exceeding the call limit during the specified time period, any additional calls would be blocked, and a recording would advise you that the call is not allowed.

Queue Pro expands the options available in the PBX queues, allowing you to assign dynamic queue penalty rules to escalate calls based upon the length of hold time. VQ Plus also allows you to create virtual queues to manage queue behavior and customize destinations.
Queue Call Back Option – Allow callers to optionally hang up their call and have the queue hold their position in line, saving them time and frustration. The system will automatically call the person back and transfer the call to an agent when the held position is considered the next in line.
Build Dynamic Queue Penalty Rules – Have the system call different agents based upon how long a caller has waited in the queue. For example, the queue might be set to try agents with a penalty of 0-3 for the first 30 seconds, then try agents with a penalty of 2-5 for the next minute.
Create Virtual Queues – A virtual queue allows you to change the settings of a queue before a call is routed to the queue. This reduces the need for agents to log into multiple queues.
Expanded Queue Destination Controls – The standard queue module only allows you to send unanswered calls to a single destination, regardless of why the call was not answered. Queue Pro gives you the ability to set different destinations for different types of unanswered calls.
Post Hangup Destinations – Queue Pro adds the ability to route both the agent and the caller to any destination after hangup of a queue call.
