Default Make it Easier on Yourself and Use VDN Variables


You are going to have to create the new 4 digit extensions right? So one thing I always use for this is to divide the existing stations into groups. Then duplicate one station in each group "dup sta 300" into as many new 4-digis stations as you need. At this point do a complete back-up just in case

Next use the GEDI "find and replace command to remove the three-digit stations. Then create one VDN for each 3-digit number. Make V1 on tab 3 the new 4-digit number.
Please see the attached.

Then all you need is a short vector
1 waittime 0 seconds hearing silence
2 announcement 1234 [The number you dialed was recntly replaced. Please ask the
party you called for the new number.] Additionally you can ask users to mention the
new number in their voice mail greetings.
