Callnow is deprecated and is no longer supported in 5.5.0 version and above.

This page describes what the CallNow feature does and the steps required for its setup.


The CallNow function can only be used by Phone terminal extensions!

The CallNow interface allows people with Internet access to contact an extension that belongs to the VoipNow server.

Based on the number of the external request, the extension will call back the user using the details they filled in. The extension's specific routing, screening, and charging rules apply just as if the call was initiated by the extension.

If the feature is not activated, VoipNow displays the following message:

To access the CallNow feature, go to the Extensions Management page and click on the CallNow icon in the Tools area. From the CallNow Preferences page, enable the Allow people to call me option in order to be able to fill in the rest of the details.
