Support for more desktop phones as a standard would be helpful. They are heavy on Yealink phones and when moving from legacy systems we find it a bit cumbersome to add those phones on to 3CX and then auto-provisioning becomes quite a task

Specifically in version 16, we had some issues with call parking. It was not easy to add or remove the users to a parking group in a simple way. We would need to change the users of the parking group, which is somewhat hard. Once we establish the system and do the initial configuration, some configurations will be fixed. However, if we need to change those configurations, the option is to do a reinstallation. Otherwise, we cannot do anything. We would need the support team to do the reinstallation manually and perform system changes as well. So, if there are missed configurations during the initial steps, then to resolve that we need to reinstall the system or contact 3CX support. The support would be based on system agreements between the company and 3CX. The 3CX system has an auto-provisioning system for desk phones, but there are a limited set of models that are supported. It is very easy to configure IP phones, but the supported systems are somewhat low. Yealink phones are supported, but some other brands are not supported. I would like them to include other models or other vendor's phones to work with the auto-provisioning mode. Otherwise, if that model does not support auto-provisioning, we would need to configure that phone manually. However, if it's auto-provisioning, we could just use the URL, and that will reset the phone, and it will configure it by itself.

In 3CX, customization is not as easy as I would like. With 3CX Call Flow Designer, you can set up the flow of a call, deliver it to the department, and automate the process. I can't do many things with this. It could be easier. I would also like to add an SMS feature. Lots of other Brazilian network operators are integrating SMS into their systems. The failover doesn't work as it should either. I expect it to work automatically, but it doesn't. I have to do the same over again myself. This is something worrying about 3CX.
