Asterisk tips forking

Forking in the dialplan


Q: Daydreams about being able to fork in the dialplan
Actually you sort of can - wonder what something like:

Dial(Zap/1&LOCAL/s@AlsoDoThis&LOCAL/s@AndThisToo)

would do?

A: That works. Does not make your CDR any more readable though... you can even
add a delay with Wait(x) for some of the Local channels to make the start ringing a bit later than others.

Alternative approach

Take a look at FollowMe, this permits parallel call attempts.
