Call Logging is a set of call analysis features in the Business Portal that allow CPs, Company Administrators and Site/Group Administrators to view and analyse call logging information.
Call Logging is accessed in the Business Portal using the ‘Dashboard‘ option. The Dashboard used will depend on the level of login, Company Administrator – ‘Companies’ Dashboard, End-User – ‘Employees’ Dashboard etc.
Company Administrator access is for End Customer Administrators. This role allows access to an entire company, all of its Sites, Users and Features etc.
Both the CP Administrator and Company Administrator will access Call Logging via the Company Dashboard and have access to all Call Logging search criteria, data and features across the whole Customer.
Group Administrators that are configured to administer a customer’s Site or Sites only have access to Call Logging for the Sites that they have been assigned Admin Privileges for.
Employee Group Administrators can only access call logging via the individual Employee Dashboards that they have been assigned Admin Privileges for.
See Employee dashboard below
Employees can access their own Call Logging Data via the Dashboard option on the Business Portal Employee login.
