How to manually add numbers to block in Ascenids 3.1

Post by chazcone » Mon Jul 01, 2019 3:00 pm

Is this possible? I haven't been able to figure it out.

I see no one has posted here in ten years and nothing new since 2016 -- but I LOVE Ascendis Caller ID!

Hi Chaz! Glad to see you again.

You can manually add numbers to block by using a contact made specifically for blocking calls. You might want a contact named "Unwanted", "Junk", or something else for this purpose:
  1. In Ascendis Caller ID, view the "Contacts" tab in the main window
    (if it is not already showing, click the "Contacts" tab)
  2. Click the "New Contact" button on the toolbar, or right-click on the list of contacts and choose "New Contact"
  3. In the "Edit Contact" window that appears, enter a descriptive name for the contact (such as "Unwanted")
  4. Change "Action" (on the right side of the window, about midway down) to "Block"
  5. Click the "Numbers" tab at the top of the "Edit Contact" window
  6. Click the "Add" button near the bottom of the window
  7. Type the desired phone number into the "Phone Number" box
  8. Repeat steps 6 and 7 for each additional phone number
  9. Click OK to save the new contact and close the window
Once the "Unwanted" contact has been added, you can manually add numbers to it by double-clicking the "Unwanted" contact in the "Contacts" tab and following the above steps starting with #5.

Or, if a call comes in that you want to block in the future:
  1. Right-click on the call in the Calls list and choose "Add Number to Existing Contact"
  2. In the "Select Contact" window that appears, scroll down to the "Unwanted" contact and select it
  3. Click OK to assign the new phone number to the contact and close the window
