Deciphering the Details

Cradle to Grave is an integral part to Chronicall and gives you the power to validate your reporting and calls. It will give you the ability to see the finite details of every call from beginning to end, including every "life event" of the call. Listed below is an explanation of each event that you might see in a breakdown of a call in Cradle to Grave.


Standard Events

Standard Events are events that do not require further licensing other than the base license of Chronicall.

Auto Attendant - Typically the initial event is when an inbound call is presented, an event where the caller is listening to and interacting with the initial message. For example, an initial message would play telling the caller "press sales press 1. For support press 2. . . ."

Busy - A busy event will show when users are not logged in and voicemail has been disabled.This is a rare occurrence and is similar to a busy signal.

Calling Drop - Calling drop signifies that the caller was the first to hang up on the call.

Conference - An event where three or more parties are talking together in a conference. In Cradle to Grave, conference events can be expanded further to see the talking events inside.

Consolidated - This is a rare occurrence. If a call in Cradle to Grave displays consolidated as an event, it hints to the fact that there were too many events for any one given call to show the entire list of events. This typically demonstrates that there may be an issue.

Dialing - An event where the user picks up their phone. Usually, this means that the user is dialing a number. This will only show when the call is outbound or internal.

Hold - An event where the caller is placed in a hold state. The user that placed the caller on hold is the only user that will be able to take the caller off of hold.

Listen - An event that takes place during a live listen scenario. It is typically shown as an internal call from the manager/supervisor to the user. On that call, the listen event will be displayed.

Overflow - When a call comes into a hunt group and no users are available, you can configure your phone system to redirect the call to a different hunt group. This will display as an overflow event.

Park - A park event is similar to a hold event, except callers on park can be picked up by other users.

Queue - When an inbound call comes into a hunt group and no users are available to answer the call, the call will enter a queue for that hunt group, if enabled. The event represents the caller waiting to be answered by an available user.

Receiving Drop - Receiving drop signifies that the receiver of the call was the first to hang up.

Ringing - An event where the user's phone is ringing.

Talking - An event where the user is talking to an external party or another user.

Transfer Hold - A hold event that is created while the user is in the process of transferring the caller to another user.

Voicemail - An event where the caller is in the voicemail box. Most of this time will be spent leaving a message, but any other action that can be taken within the voicemail box will also be counted here.
