$rv Returns Only The Last Character When A Star

Recommended Posts

I have a "capture entered number" module. The path is set so that "on star key" move to the next module. So the user might type in 123* for example.

If I then use $RV to read the value of the module, it only returns the star.


Is this a bug?

Is there a work around?


thank you

Please use an on {success} goto .... path.


If you have an on {*} goto .... path then when a * key is pressed then it is an exact match for that path and that path will be taken.


* is often used in IVR systems to indicate that a caller wants to go back up a menu, or does not want to enter anything in this module.


Usually to finish entering a number users should be asked to press the # key.
