Call blocking 'ends with'

Post by lubarb » Thu Aug 08, 2019 4:07 pm

I see that call blocking now allows specifying names that "end with" something.

I'd like to use this to block calls from e.g. "BRAINTREE MA", but not calls where the name of the caller happens to end with "MA", eg. "OOMA". If I add an 'ends-with' block and enter a space followed by MA for the name, it looks like the space gets dropped.

Is there a way to use ends-with blocking to accomplish what I want?

Yes MyOoma strips the space when submitting the string to the backend,
so went ahead and added "* MA" using our database console.

Will individual users be able to apply similar filters manually, in future? Or will this be akin to enabling the high-bandwidth codec, requiring support intervention?

Can the same be done for me with my existing filters or do I need to call customer support?
