VoIP Drupal

This group should probably have more organizers. See documentation on this recommendation.

We are building a highly innovative framework that integrates Drupal sites with touch tone phones, SMS and Internet-telephony systems.

Our goal is to create a voice-over-internet-protocol (VoIP) platform that interoperates with existing VoIP PBX implementations (Asterisk, FreeSwitch, Tropo, Twilio and others) to provide Drupal users with the ability to, among other things:

* Record, send and receive audio messages
* Create and manage audio groups
* Add audio events to a shared calendar
* Organize phone-based polls
* Send meeting reminders
* Collect stories
* Broadcast emergency announcements
* And much more!

VoIP Drupal will change the way you interact with Drupal, your phone and the web! Join our LinkedIn group and learn more about VoIP Drupal at the VoIP Drupal project page, the VoIP Drupal Handbook and the demo site.

If you have any pressing questions, please leave them here or get online support at #drupal-voip (FreeNode IRC). Our IRC Office Hours are usually on Wednesdays @ Noon EST.

Small Office Phone Routing

I need a way to route callers for a small office setting to pre recorded information.

It would be "to hear about X press 1, to hear about y press 2" type of call for now.

It seems this would be simple with VOIP Drupal but I do not know how to create the script.

If anyone has worked on this, would like to work on it together, or has other ideas let me know.

Script - Very Basic Questions on Getting Started

Leo and Owen and everyone who has worked on VoIP Drupal, thank you for your work and I think this is an exciting development. I am not a professional web site developer and all my experience is with Drupal, with a few looks at books on php and mysql. I have set up the Twilio account.

First a most basic question, should script writers be focused on VoIP Drupal script language, and not the Twilio documentation?

Sample Script - Enter Zip Code - application error

I tried a simple script based on the documentation. http://drupal.org/node/1079360

$prompt = 'Please enter your phone number after the beep';
$script->addGetInput($prompt);
$script->addSay("You typed %input_digits");
$script->addHangup();

It asks me for the number and then gives the response "We're sorry, an application error has occurred."

It gives the same result for the sample weather report script, it allows me to enter a zip code and then gives the same error message.

Example scripts?

Hello Leo:

Attended the first BOF at Drupal Conn but was unable to attend the hands on training session. Is it possible to get the materials? I have installed the module and set it up with Twilio (very simple process). Have written a couple of simple scripts and am looking for some more advanced samples. Also how can I gain access to the "built-in" scripts?

BTW - this is an awesome module, thanks for all the effort.

Michael Silverman.

What is voipextension - required for module Voip Script UI - web-based interface for developers to create and test VoIP Drupal scripts

I have installed VOIP Drupal and linked it to a Twilio account. Thanks for the detailed handbook. http://drupal.org/node/1078710

I set Pickup script to voip_weather_report and it does answer when a call is received (though it does not provide the weather report, think I need to install something for it to work).

I would like to try creating a script and within Site Building - Modules there is VoIP Drupal - Voip Script UI which is described as:

"Provides a web-based interface for developers to create and test VoIP Drupal scripts"

What is the best interactive solution in Drupal?

I have been reading the posts in the group, and they are very interesting, though I am still not clear with regards to the route to take. I was hoping to get some feedback from an expert in this area.

We are currently in the process of adding an interactive telephony and SMS portion to our site.

Telephone wise, we would like to initiate a call to a specific user, based on Drupal triggers and have the person respond to the questions we send out by pressing on the phone keys. At that point we would want to add that information to the user's record.

Hi,

I wonder if anyone can advise me. I'm interested in establishing a private VOIP to VOIP call between 2 parties, and allowing them to collaborate on my Drupal website. Does anyone have an idea of a way I could do this, while allowing my Drupal website to record call start, duration, and end details?

Hope you can help.

I thought it would be very helpful if I would bring it up here.

Our situation is that we are moving a large, multi-user knowledge management Portal into private beta. While we wish to have a "live" version of the site, with content creation, file upload , image upload and addition etc, we wish to maintain active development on several aspects of functionality.
