Call Log


How To

Setting up Default Options for Call Log Fields

Setting up default options for call log fields

If your agents are using call logs, there's probably been times either you or they have wanted to speed up the process of getting the call logs entered and saved, so agents can move on quickly to the next call. The problem was, agents were forced to minimally input a call result for each call.

The call log defaults feature lets you establish a default field value for any and all task fields displayed in your call log panel. To access this feature, all you need to do is edit the appropriate fields, and set up the default value.

Additional Call Log Fields

Additional Call Fields

In addition to the standard call log fields, we provide some additional log fields which you can optionally include. The bulk of these fields are for inbound calls, but there are also a few for outbound.

The purpose is to provide additional reporting insight into activities. For example, the optional Call Answered field helps you build reports identifying the percentage of inbound calls that are answered or missed; the Wait Time field helps you compare average wait times across ACDs, and so on.

Optional Inbound Data Fields
Field Name Information Displayed
Inbound Number Dialed The number the caller dialed.
Call Answered Indicates whether the call was answered (Yes or No)
Call Failover Indicates whether the call came after a failover (Yes or No)
Wait Time How long the caller waited before the line was picked up.
Failover Number Indicates the failover number the call used, if applicable.
Route to Owner Indicates whether the call was routed to the record owner (Yes or No)
Route to Last Caller Indicates if the call was routed to the last caller of the record (Yes or No).

Conference Call Call Logs

Call Metrics with Conference Calls

If you use the Call Conferencing function to bridge in co-workers who also use the PowerDialer, you may need to know how talk time is logged between the participants. Here's how it works:

  1. A call task is created for each employee who participated on a call.
  2. This task accounts for the duration that employee spent on the call.
  3. Both call tasks will be related to the record that was dialedlid.
