    I would be nice to apply settings to extension groups.

    example
    Customer wants to automatically open chat window on incoming chat, for every user.
    we now have to go around and change them all or send emails to everyone hoping they can follow directions

    Options that would be nice to have mass control over
    Override profile status in chat would be another one
    Focus
    transfering using drag and drop
    video and audio options
    Hot Keys
    Switch board options - views, call filter, view options

    You can find the pop-up option in settings.

    Chat -> Chat settings -> Automatically open chat window on incoming chat.

    Groups of extensions may have BLF's in 3CXPhone (and hardphones, for that matter) configured in a certain way. It's extremely time consuming and error-prone to set these for each extension individually. A couple of tick boxes might do the trick - one idea: "copy BLF settings from Extension: nnnn".

    I agree with this. This has been one of the big issues we have faced since switching to 3CX. We can't widely change settings or even configure them in the provisioning templates. There are a lot of options that we think should be default settings to make the software more user friendly like the chat pop up. Ideally I would prefer to be able to change them remotely at any time per user.

    yes i agree, there are to many manual settings to maintain in 3cx, we need better automation of settings for large environment. I also need a setting to turn automatic chat popup on for al clients.

    Yes, please do this. I have many non technical employees and the chat window is a great example. It basically caused our employees to stop using chat because they don't see the window. Also 3CX seems to like changing defaults which further confuses our employees. I would really like some ability to configure very basic settings, even if it is just changing the defaults and not necessarily enforcing a configuration.

    That would make a lot of things easier! Can't be that hard to do.

    I'm wondering if this is still on the "in progress" list. I also think it would be nice to lock down settings like in group policy, so for instance, people cannot modify settings like changing their company photo.
