Bug Report: $FTransfer$ not working

I'm trying to implement a macro that uses the $FTransfer$ command.  It does not work in either UC or  I'm testing it on a VVX 450, but I've previously tested on a VVX 400 and gotten the same result.


I've tested putting the command into a softkey, an EFK, a macro, and a hard-key reassignment the result is the same:  The command is ignored.


My goal is the have a button that will execute the transfer button and the line button in a single action, i.e..


#1:  key.VVX450.20.function.prim="$FTransfer$$FSoftKey1$"


Unfortunately, that doesn't work.  The $FTransfer$ command is ignored, and only the second part of the command is executed.  However, if I use instead $FSoftKey3 or $FConference, it does work, i.e.,


#2: key.VVX450.20.function.prim="$FSoftKey3$$FSoftKey1$"


#3: key.VVX450.20.function.prim="$FConference$$FSoftKey1$"


However, #2 is undesirable because it requires me to keep the redundant softkeys on the display and #3 is undesirable because it lacks the ability to complete the transfer while the called extension is still ringing.


Can anyone point me to where I might go to report this bug?

Re: Bug Report: $FTransfer$ not working

Thank you very much for the prompt response.  I've opened a ticket.


If anyone else has any thoughts on this, I'd appreciate it.  Perhaps I'm doing it wrong, or I'm misunderstanding how "$FTransfer$" is supposed to work?
