Call Session View

Call Session View #

When viewing any of the call list reports, an additional call session view can be accessed which provides clear details of each telephone call.

A telephone call (session) can involve multiple segments which can in turn involve multiple users/devices on the system (connections).

For more information on the difference between call sessions, segments and connections, please refer to the Call Segmentation section.

Accessing the Session View #

The segment view for a call can be accessed by clicking the link on the first column of a call within the report:


The 'Call Session' view will then be displayed. Each segment of the call is clearly depicted on a time line making it easy to visualize the life of the call.


The image above shows a call with 3 segments. The first segment of the call was answered then placed on hold while an internal inquiry call was made. The original call was then transferred.

Connection Information #

Selecting a specific call segment will display another window showing all the users/devices involved in the segment. This also shows information about the status of the connections, displaying when and for how long they were 'Parked', 'Ringing', 'Talking' or 'On Hold'.


The image above shows the connections involved in the initial segment and call. The call involved an internal user (Sarah) and an external trunk (94009). When viewing conference calls, many connections can be involved in a single call segment.

Information Circle info
If there is only 1 call segment then the call connections section will automatically open.

Call Tag Information #

If the call session being viewed has been tagged with any of the configured tag types, a Tag Data section will be displayed.

This tag section will displayed all the tags which have been assigned to the call. If any of the tags are of the Link Record type, clicking the tag should open a new browser tab/window to display the linked CRM or contact record.

Recording Playback #

If the communications platform has been configured to record the calls and access to the recordings is available, the recordings' details will be displayed below the segment breakdown. The image below shows 2 recordings for the single segment call. A recording has been made on each of the connections involved in the call. Depending on the configuration of the communications platform, the number of recordings available will vary.
