Calls by External Party

The Calls by External Party report allows you to search for external party numbers* in your database using detailed criteria. Each call that involves a matching external party will be listed in the rows of the report. The call's call direction and the matching external party are displayed alongside other general information about the call. Entering nothing into the external party filter will allow all external parties into your report.

This report is a Call Detailed report. This means that each line on the report will represent one individual call and will provide details for each call. Each line provides a Call ID. The Call ID is a number that is associated with the call in the Chronicall database. It is a very useful number as once the report is run, you can copy the Call ID for any call found on the report, take it to Cradle to Grave for the same timeframe, paste it in the Quick Search tool (look for the magnifying glass icon in the top left-hand corner of Cradle to Grave), and it will take you directly to the call. This will then allow you to see the detailed events of the call.

An external party (or external number) is a number that has origins from outside of your phone system.
