Excessive (Event Type) by User

The Excessive (Event Type) by User report allows you to report on calls containing a specific event or events, but only if the event(s) fit the duration threshold specified (i.e., an event lasting longer than, less than, or equal to two minutes).

The report columns list general information about each call, including the call direction, internal and external parties involved, account code, event type duration, and the call's start time and total duration.

The Excessive (Event Type) by User report is a Detailed report. This means that each line on the report will represent one individual call and will provide details for each call. (To see an user's calls in full detail, click "open," which is located at the end each user's column.) 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 useful number because 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.

In addition to being a Detailed report, it is sub-grouped by user. This means that the report will be broken down into an individual mini-report for each of the selected users. You will then easily be able to see which calls are associated to which user.

It’s important to know that this report contains an Account Code column. Account codes are generally associated with the Agent Dashboards module. Therefore, if the Agent Dashboards license has not been purchased, then the report can still be used; however, the Account Code column will be left blank.

  • Outbound - When you call an external party. The call originates inside your system but goes outside of your system.
  • Internal - When you dial another person by their extension in the organization. The call originates in your system but stays in your system (extension to extension).
  • Intersite - This is very uncommon and is there for Legacy VersionsLegacy Versions - Version 3.4 and older of Chronicall. prior to Chronicall release 3.6.

You will only see intersite calls if you have set up Chronicall to record data from multiple locations.

Account Code Requirements

Account codes are generally associated with the Agent Dashboards module and requires the associated module license. This means that if the Agent Dashboards license has been purchased and account codes have been configured, then the column will display the account code information. If the Agent Dashboards license has not been purchased, then the report can still be used; however, the Account Code column will be left blank.


{Event Type} Duration

This shows the total, maximum, minimum, or average duration of all events in the given call. Specify one or more events types to only include those events.

It is important to know that call events are the stages a call moves through as it is created, answered, transferred, or ended. This event level filter can compare each event's duration with a specific value by using standard mathematical inequalities (greater than, less than, etc.) and ranges. Any events that fit your criteria will be included.

Please note:

  • The [..] option is inclusive at both ends, meaning [0, 5] includes 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5.
  • The (..) option is exclusive at both ends, meaning (0, 5) includes 1, 2, 3, and 4.
  • The [..) option is inclusive at the start, but exclusive at the end, meaning [0, 5) includes 0, 1, 2, 3, and 4.
