Yeastar P-Series Appliance Edition

Release date: January 12, 2022

New features

Queue Callback
With Queue Callback feature, customers can request a callback and hang up the call directly, without having to wait on line for a long time. Once there is an agent available, he/she will call back to the customer, thus greatly improving customer satisfaction.
You can set up the callback request triggered by caller input, or auto-triggered when timeout. Also, you can customize queue notification to send an email to queue manager when a callback request is made or when a callback is failed.
Note: Accordingly, two types of call reports are added, namely the Queue Callback Summary and Queue Callback Activity, to help the queue manager track and estimate queue performance.
For more information, see Allow Users to Request a Callback in a Queue.
Hot Standby
You can set two PBXs as a Hot Standby pair, one as a primary server while the other as a secondary server. Upon failure of the primary server, the secondary server automatically takes over the PBX system. This Hot Standby solution offers you the ability to provide high availability for your business phone system, helping to prevent unnecessary business loss caused by unexpected service failure.
For more information, see Hot Standby Overview.
Linkus Web Client Function Key
You can set up function keys on PBX web portal or Linkus Web Client. In the former versions, the function keys can only be applied to auto-provisioned IP phones. In the new version, the function keys can also be applied to Yeastar Linkus Web Client and 'Yeastar Linkus for Google' Chrome extension.
Note: The Yeastar Linkus Web Client and 'Yeastar Linkus for Google' Chrome extension can support up to 120 function keys.
Tip: Click on Linkus Web Client or Linkus Chrome extension to open the Function Key panel.

Salesforce CRM Integration
With Salesforce CRM Integration feature, you can quickly integrate Salesforce CRM with the company's PBX system through simple operations, and achieve the following functions:
  • Call popup
  • Click to Call
  • Contact Synchronization
  • Automatic Contact Creation
  • Call Journal
For more information, see Salesforce CRM Integration Guide.
AutoCLIP Route
AutoCLIP can redirect incoming call to original extension. The Yeastar P-Series PBX System can automatically store information about outgoing calls to the AutoCLIP routing table. When customer calls back, the call will be routed directly to the original extension that made the outgoing call to the customer before.
For more information, see AutoCLIP Route Overview.
LDAP Server
LDAP Server provides centralized phonebook management on Yeastar P-Series PBX System. You can store your contacts on PBX, and connect to IP phone via LDAP protocol. In this way, you can search key words from your IP phone, and remotely search the contacts on the PBX in real-time.
For more information, see LDAP Server Overview.
File Sharing
You can set up file sharing feature on System > Storage > File Sharing, which allows users to access the files that are stored in the PBX local or external storage via FTP, share files that are stored in PBX external storage, or upload/download specified files in PBX via TFTP.
Note: This feature only supports access from the same LAN network.
Blocked Numbers & Allowed Numbers
Block Numbers & Allowed Numbers feature can easily help you get rid of unwanted calls.
  • Blocked Number is used to block incoming and/or outgoing calls. If you add a phone number of incoming call into the blocked number list, you will not receive the call from this number any longer. Likewise, if you add a phone number of outgoing call in the blocked number list, you can not call the number any longer.
  • Allowed Number is used to filter specific numbers from the Blocked Number list, which can prevent trusted numbers from being blocked.
    Note: The Allowed Number has higher priority than the Blocked Number; Adding numbers in Allowed Number doesn't mean that PBX only allow these numbers to call in or be called out.
Call Accounting
You can set up call rate on Reports and Recordings > Call Reports > Rate. This feature allows you to monitor the billing statistics for different calls based on long distance or local for individual or departments within the company, which can help you estimate and control the budget.
Important: Yeastar Enterprise Plan or Ultimate Plan is required.
Note: Accordingly, two types of call reports are added, namely the Extension Call Accounting and Extension Call Accounting Details, to get dedicated call accounting reports for each phone call, extension, extension group, etc.
For more information about configuration, see Add a Call Rate Rule.

  • Fixed the issue that the agent login status and the number of logged in agents couldn't be updated and synchronized automatically.
SIP Header
  • Improved Diversion application scenarios: When the diversion header is not None, the diversion header field is carried only for the following scenarios:
