    Is there a way to make the default setting for phone online status to "Auto-Answer"? By default when starting the 3CXPhone, the phone online status is "Available". I was hoping there is a variable/parameter that can be added to the 3CXVoipPhone.ini to change the default phone online status?

    Using 3CXPhone verison: 5.0.14900.0

    Thanks

    Hi

    No, this is not possible.The main reason is to avoid, let's say, a "surprising behavior" when 3CXPhone is automatically launched at Windows startup. If user is not aware, it will not be able to receive calls when DND/Voicemail, or 3CXPhone will act like a "spy" when in Auto-answer, user not being aware somebody is listening/watching him - this case is even stronger guarded for video with the two extra-options, "do not send video when inactive" and "start sending video when call is established".

    Regards
