I'm going to finish a conversion from SwyxWare to Asterisk this Sunday and the last thing that I need to do is the support phone roster script I had originally devised in VBScript where whoever is on support for that period of 24 hours would call in to a certain extension, type a PIN and change the support phone number (essentially a follow-me) to another person.

How would I go about implementing such a setup in FreePBX? Agents and queues?

It would probably be the easiest way of doing it.

The other way would be to do something with Time Groups / Time Conditions. I've never really played with this but if you had a fixed roster you could load a time group for each user which you could then use elsewhere.

Thought so. I've set up day/night time IVRs using Time Groups and Conditions, but the rosters are rotating, usually in a cycle that is lower than the number of days in a week. Fixed roster wouldn't work in this case.

There is the daynight module that may work combined with time conditions, would allow you to easily modify on the fly

Worked it out by creating custom extensions that I can select from an IVR menu (hidden options). The extensions ask for the agent number (each agent's extension) and a PIN. One IVR option to log in, one to log out. Works brilliantly.
