Total overhaul of the Dashboard, in version 1.x of Ombutel there were many issues with the Dashboard, many times the graphics would distort and the data wasn’t exact. With VitalPBX 2.0 the Dashboard was changed completely, solving these problems and adding new information and functionality.
Improvements to the Queues
Improvements to the Queues module, two new option were added to the creation of Queues:
• Statistics reset, through a CRON created on a new module you can reset the statistics periodically
• Destination After Hang up, now it is possible to redirect a caller to a destination if an agent hangs up first. This is very useful to answer a client satisfaction poll, or perform a specific action.
Now it is possible to get statistics from the utilization of an IVR, meaning we can check how many times an IVR option is selected. Very useful if you wish to realize a user satisfaction poll, after a call on a queue. A free version is included that’s limited to one IVR.
New option of private extensions in COS, Now it is possible to limit calls between if they belong to different COS. Very useful when the group is shared with many Companies, and you don’t wish for them to talk with each other.
New module of CID Lookup, with this module it is possible to make data base queries in Inbound calls to identify the caller’s name.
New module of CRON Profiles, with this module you can configure the execution of processes periodically. For now this module is only used to reset the Queue statistics.
Video Conference, we included a module for video conferencing, with which you can realize a video conference with limitless multiple users. You will also be able to share your desktop, with a chat also included. All of this for free.
New module for RTP Settings, now it is possible to configure the main Asterisk Audio ports from the interface, as well as the Stun Server.
Mini HTTP Server
New Module Mini HTTP Server, this module is included to enable the web socket for the implementation of WEBRTC in Asterisk (WS y WSS).
New module for the creation of certificates, this module lets you create Self Sign and Let’s Encrypt certificates. Very useful to encrypt the communication between client and server
Now it is possible to encrypt the audio calls, to avoid that the calls get heard with a packet sniffing software.
