[Freeswitch-users] is there a group_confirm_timeout setting?

Hi Philip,

If I understand what you're trying to accomplish, namely giving the called
party X number of seconds to press 1 to confirm the call, otherwise move on
in the call processing, then I'm pretty sure that you don't want to set the
group_confirm_cancel_timeout to true. See explanation here:

I'd try leaving that as false and setting the leg timeout value to be
whatever time you need. Note: I'm pretty sure that the leg timeout includes
the amount of time the leg spends ringing the cell phone, so be sure to
factor in the possibility that the called party doesn't answer right away
but maybe it could take 10+ seconds before the person on the other end of
the cell phone even hears "press one to accept."
