[Freeswitch-users] dial-string pickup possible after group call?

Hi Guys,
Just wondering if its possible to use the user dial-string command to do call pickup after a call has been sent to a hunt group using the bridge and group_call function?
So basically a call to group 5000, sends calls to  extension 1000 and 2000 which are in the group.
This all works fine but I want to be able to pickup the call by dialling *8 then either 1000 or 2000.
I can do this if I am not using the group_call function, and its just a normal inbound call to the extension I want to pickup, so just wondered if its possible to do a pickup of one of the extensions in the group?
To start the group_call Im using in my dialplan;
Dialing 5000 results in;

<action application="bridge" data="${group_call(huntgroup1 at test.com+A}"/>

Which then rings both extension 1000 and 2000 which have the dial-string defined;

<param name="dial-string" value="sofia/internal/${dialed_user}@test.com,pickup/${dialed_user}@test.com"/>

If I add pickup after group_call, this allows be to pickup extension 5000, but I need to be able to create the pickup channel using the dial-string, am I doing this wrong or does anyone have an idea how to achieve this?

And just to be clear pickup works fine for normal inbound calls, its just when implementing group_call.
Many thanks
