Identifying log entries

The following points explain the columns in the log table to help you identify log entries:

From and To columns

    • If Path column is labelled as Call Queue: Click Details in the last column to see call queue members that the call queue tried to reach. Members labelled with Busy mean they skipped the call notification to remove themselves from the current call queue distribution.
  • Call Cancelled: The call was hung up by the originating caller while ringing. 
  • Call Connected: The call was answered by the party specified in the To column.
  • No Answer (only applies to inbound calls): The call was not answered by the extension specified in the To column. This label also applies if the extension declined the call notification or the call was forwarded to voicemail.
  • Park: A phone user parked the call.
  • Recorded: A phone user used in-call controls to record the call.

  • Monitor: The phone user (From column) monitored the call of another phone user (To column) using one of these call monitoring features: listen, whisper, or barge.
