    Is there a way to set up office hours for outbound calls so as to choose a different gateway depending on time of day/day of week.

    E.g. BT now have free weekend calls so at weekend I would like to place outbound calls via PSTN gateway(and limit call to 1 hour, but can do that in the gateway itself), at other times I would like to use my VOIP gateway.

    There only seems to be office hours functionality in the area of routing inbound calls.

    When it is only for yourself and not for a lot of people you could make outboundrules with a prefix. Just configure that you have to dial a prefix for the weekends and normal during officehours. The only thing is that you have to remember it during weekends to dial with that prefix.

    I already have prefixes set up so I can manually select, but was hoping for an automatic way - need to make it wife proof as she is a bit of a technophobe and just wants the phones to work :roll:
