    Does anyone use an emergency broadcast add-on, and or something built into 3CX? My company is looking for a way to notify all employees of an event via phone.

    Thanks!

    This software was recommended, by another user, in one of the other forums, for paging.

    Hi,
    Bardissi's suggestion is correct. Set up a ring group, set ringing strategy to 'Paging' from the ring group properties. Also make sure you specify the paging code in the Settings>>Advanced Settings>> Dial codes tab(default should be *9).

    then dial the paging code and the ring group number to page all phones for example if your ring group number is 800 and your paging code is *9, dial *9800 and you will page all phones simultaneously. If you have any further questions please feel free to let us know.

    Best Regards
