<CyberEvil> Hi everyone

<damencho> hi CyberEvil

<CyberEvil> I would like to make a tiny request if possible :slight_smile: - when you
use numbers such as 1-719-4542-527 or (001) 719-4542-etc it doesn't convert
the numbers removing extra characters, therefore the call fails is it
possible to add this feature?

<damencho> yep, everything is possible :slight_smile:

<CyberEvil> also, a mute button next to mic, instead of having to scroll
down the bar would be awesome

<CyberEvil> :slight_smile:

<CyberEvil> (tried the email listing, but couldn't email directly to the dev
list without subscribing)

<damencho> yes you must subscribe

<CyberEvil> is it here the right area to make a request? have 2 more tiny
things to ask for: the ability to use the dot (numpad) as # (for conference
calls, etc) and some feature to add a pause to a call (more possibly a
stored contact), eg: 1719454527##5528 would result in a call, a pause, and
the code 5528 sent automatically

<CyberEvil> (been using SC for years, this is the first time I jump on the
dev loop)

<damencho> well the best place is the mailinglist

<damencho> as all devs will see it

<CyberEvil> allright, thanks! will try now

This is a tricky one since dashes are valid address characters so we
can't just remove them since we can't know whether they are supposed to
be meaningful or not. A provider is best placed to make such a decision.

Still, we've often had the request so we may add this as a property
that's turned off by default and see how it goes. Could you please enter
an enhancement request issue?

<CyberEvil> also, a mute button next to mic, instead of having to scroll

This is what we previously had and others have also been complaining
about it. One way to fix this would be to have a click work as a mute
and a longer click show the level control bar.

Could you please create an enhancement request for this one too?

Cheers,
Emil

Hi Emil, all,

Thanks for implementing the mute control!

Seen that an attempt to convert the numbers was made too, but is still failing trying for example:

9(001) 719-4542-527
Or
001 719 4542 527

(it breaks on an unexpected character, including spaces)

Thanks!

Cyber

Hi Emil, all,

Thanks for implementing the mute control!

Seen that an attempt to convert the numbers was made too, but is still failing trying for example:

The attempts you've seen only concern contacts retrieved from external
address books such as Microsoft Outlook or Apple Address Book. There
have been no changes so far on how numbers in the search field are handled.

It's on our ToDo list though.

Cheers,
Emil
