Limitations of 3CX Phone System Beta

  • Missed Call to a ring group does not generate a missed call notification in 3CX MyPhone, nor an email.
  • When a call is made from A to B, transferred to C and disconnected before C answers, a missed call will not be displayed on C.
  • Calls made from 3CX MyPhone are shown as answered even if call is not answered at the final destination.
  • The following sections are not available in the 3CX Management Console when accessed via Google Chrome Browser:
    • Edit Templates
    • Phone Provisioning templates (will be seen as grayed out).
  • If 3CX Phone System is installed on a computer that has Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 installed, 3CX MyPhone will not work.
  • 3CX Web Reports: When an external call is incoming to the PBX and forwarded to an extension that is away and forwarding to a mobile, the call will show the correct source and destination but the cost will be 0 for the outbound leg.
  • Incoming Faxes with Broadvox is not working. We have raised a support ticket with Broadvox for analysis.

Installing 3CX Phone System 11 Beta

Since we are still in Beta stage, in order to update from 3CX Phone System 10 or version 11 Beta 1, a full reinstall is required. The following steps are required:

  1. Take a complete backup of your 3CX Phone System 10 or 11 Beta 1 installation using the 3CX Backup and Restore tool (Start > All Programs > 3CX Phone System > 3CX Backup and Restore Tool). Note – this might take some time depending on the amount of voice mails, recordings and call history records.
  2. NOTE: If you have a lot of voice mails and recordings, it is recommended to take a backup of these manually and exclude backing them up from the 3CX Backup and Restore. This will save a lot of time during the upgrade.
  3. Uninstall 3CX Phone System 10 or 11 Beta 1.
  4. Download and install 3CX Phone System 11 Beta 2.
  5. Restore your backup when prompted via the 3CX Wizard.

    Great job 3CX development team. This is looking really nice.

    Hey, when calling into a conference, is the system suppose to hang up on you if you don’t enter a correct pin? I would think it would give you a few attempts with some feedback.

    • @Andy – Thanks for the update. Yes the system will cut you off – currently without feedback and without extra attempts.

    Lots of good bug fixes but not much in the way of new features. We’re really hoping you’ll be able to get voice recognition for digital receptionist and for voicemail transcription into this thing soon.

    Hey, any idea when this will be in general release?

    We have a roll out we need to start in the next week or so and id love to know whether we should hold off and wait for v11 if it’s nearly here, or if we should push ahead and install v10 and upgrade the client to v11 when it comes out (obviously option 1 is my preferred option as it saves time).

    Great work on the new features…

    I recently experience a problem with the GrandStream GXP 2100 ver. 1.0.1.66 and GrandStream GXP 2120 ver. 1.0.1.83. Provisioned on the 3CX Ver. 11 Beta 2. The screens are illuminated but blank on both. When a call rings in, I am not able to answer the call. In the phones advanced settings the idle screen xml server path shows http: //192.168.254.10:5000/provisioning/logo/idle_screen.xml.gxp2100. Please advice as to what to do. They changed by themselve. Thank you ahead of time. So far things work really great until recently. Great job 3CX

    Update to last post.
    I was able resolve my problems with the screens gong blink. I defaulted the GrandStream GXP via Telnet to factory settings and turned off idle screen provisioning through 3CX. All is good and working well.

  12. Where do we maintain the users and PIN codes for the new Web Based Reporting?

    June 27, 2012 at 4:47 am
    • @Eric – pin is the same as that used for voicemail, MyPhone etc.

      June 27, 2012 at 12:35 pm
  13. Thanks Nick, I assumed that, but using the extension as the user ID, I cannot authenticate. I’ll go back into the admin console and hunt for any setting I may have missed. I looked in the administration guide but there is a very brief mention of Web Reports, but very little detail.

    June 27, 2012 at 6:00 pm
  14. Scratch that, I see it is under the Other tab in the extension properties. Hopefully we will be able to create more customized reports in the RTM version. Great work on this release though!
