    Hi,
    I have a problem with many numbers stored and sync'ed with Outlook that start with '+'. I seem unable to write a rule to recognise this type of number when the user calls using the Outlook plugin.

    e.g. Phone number store in Address book is +62411 111 1111

    Rule
    Calls to numbers starting with : +62
    Calls to Numbers with a length of : 13

    Strip 3 digits.
    Prepend 0

    The problem is that the 3CX system seems to ignore the '+', which means international pre-code. How can we look for the '+' ?

    Thanks,

    Craig

    Can you try making a rule for 62 only?

    I just tested it and my call to +385... gets matched with 385 rule

    You should be able to come up with a set of rules that will recognise (number of digits, and/or country codes) that a number is international, and add on the required prefix, before sending out to your provider.

    I thought (not tested though) that if you filled in the international dial code in the Advanced Settings that it swapped the + with that code. And I thought that was before any outbound rules applied. So then you could match the 0062 rather than the +62

    I thought about that, but hadn't tested either. Everything I could find in the forum mentioned converting incoming caller ID (+, 00), in the advanced settings, and not modifying outgoing international dialling (other than post on the 3CX phone).
