    Is it possible to have a busy lamp showing when a conference room is in use?  If not, is this a feature that can be added?  TIA.

    I guess I am asking for an option to allow a blf “hint” to be added to a conference room so that you could have a busy lamp light up when there is someone in a conference room  Thanks.

    If you want to see the status of a conference in real time and also manage it by putting on mute or kicking participants, you can use Sonata Swtcboard.

    Seems like a lot when several extensions needs to see a button on a phone that when it lights up they they the conference room is in use, doesn’t it?

    Also not every phone has a computer to install Sonata Switchboard on it that needs to see the status of the conference room.

    You can create your own context to be able to monitor the status of the conference, for this do the following:

    On the Linux console go to /ect/asterisk/vitalpbx

    # cd /ect/asterisk/vitalpbx

    Create the following file with the following content:

    # nano extensions__26-1-hints.conf

    [extension-hints](+)
    exten => 800,hint,confbridge:800

    Remember to change 800 for the number of your conference.
