When you have used AskoziaPBX before, the configuration shouldn’t be a big mystery for you. The way the night switch worked before has not changed. You can still use it manually with a speed dial button on your IP phone or automated with the times of the week. As the “action” you can either upload an audio file or forward calls to a certain extension (e.g. a mobile phone).

New is that the manual and automated night switch options now include holidays, if defined in the menu below. By clicking on the plus, you can add a new holiday. Enter a name and select start and end date and hit save.
