    Currently you can strip up to 9 digits from and outbound call

    If you want to realize least cost routing via bridges it would be nice to strip more digits

    For example

    Bridge Prefix is 101 and 3 digits for the extension (101-xxx)
    Users may not dial the 101, because they dial via a phonebook or something else. They dial the DID from the Bridge PBX

    0049 221 1234 - xxx

    To redirect this call to the bridge and set the correct number you need to strip 11 digits

    So it would be nice to strip more digits (like 15, 20, 30?!). So you are free in your configuration and make least cost more user friendly

    Other PBX's let you write regex to route the calls and format them however you'd like. I'd like to see a more advanced option like this in the routing area. I actually just ran into this too, where I wanted to have greater control over the numbers dialed, the route, and what number was sent to the route.

    Yea, Yea, and thrice Yea!
    Two improvements:
    a. able to strip more numbers
    b. able to strip whole number, or specify more digits than exist

    This would let you have a rule take
    ("448447674670" OR "08447674670") and rewrite to "441235465818"
    Which is currently impossible
