Dial from computer

Post by jsn » Sun Jun 22, 2008 9:58 am

I work on my computer full-time. It would be really nice if I could use my contacts information to dial similar to the Skype capability. At present, I have too many numbers for the phone's stored directory and it's a lot less convenient anyway. If necessary, do an XMPP application for OOma.

Great suggestion! This kind of feature is on the longer term product roadmap. It definitely would be a useful feature to be able to click directly on a contact name from your computer and have the client setup a call to your ooma system.

Hopefully the roadmap feature is sooner rather than later! I hoped it was there ...

Add my vote for web click-to-dial like Grand Central has. Being able to click on a "Dial" button from an address book screen OR from your call log (to return calls) would be a time and finger-saver for us home office types. Click the button and your designated ooma line rings; pick it up and you hear the other end start to ring.

21st century voice communications with ooma!

Hopefully this feature will come up on the to-do list soon.

It is now May 2012 this thread started in 2008. Can we speed this up

I second this request (in fact just posted my own request for such a thing!)

This feature request is now several years old. Is there any work being done to implement this? Any need for testers?
