    I think that this idea has already been proposed, but however I try to post it.

    Is it possible in next release to have the option to change the ring tone ?

    Thanks

    Yeah i agree. We have scripted at logon to replace the default ringtone with one the business prefers but annoyingly, everytime we do an update to 3CX and a new windows client is released, the businesses preferred ring tone gets overwritten by the default ring tone. Easily fixed by getting all 200 desktops logged off and logged back on again! but would like to have this as an option.

    Would you mind sharing your script?

    Sure its along these lines:

    Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
    Dim wavLocation
    wavLocation = "\\SERVERNAME\3CXPhone_SHARE$\ringtone.wav"
    fso.CopyFile wavLocation, "C:\ProgramData\3CXPhone for Windows\PhoneApp\Sounds\ringtone.wav", True

    1.) build Windows 3CX client sounds into Windows control panel sounds program events like other applications do.
    2.) put ringtones in the application settings.

    either or both of these.

    A lot of people want to change the ringtone for queue's or ringgroups to the normal ringtone aswell, maybe you're aeble to implement this aswell in the same step...

    Thank you

    Please make this an easy thing my employees can do themselves from the softclient. It's our number one feature request here.

    How do you upvote this? By rating it 5 stars? We HATE the 3CX ringtone. Why is it the iPhone 3GS ringtone and not at least something unique? The quality of it is horrible, every time it goes off we cringe. People miss calls because they keep their speakers off because it's so annoying.
