Goto() — Sends the call to the specified priority, extension, and context

Synopsis

    Goto([[context,]extension,]priority)
    Goto(named_priority)

Sends control of the current channel to the specified priority, optionally setting the destination extension and context.

Optionally, you can use the application to go to the named priority specified by the named_priority argument. Named priorities only work within the current extension.
