  • Note that when you click these options, the end result is simply to add search syntax to the various fields above.

Create charts to visualize data about a set of calls

  • From Investigate Calls, at any time you can click the blue link that says graph calls over time (it is on the far right side)
  • This will carry over all of your search filters into the Chart page, and instead of displaying calls as tabular data, it will default to a call volume report. 
  • Note that you can change over time and split by to be any of the hundreds of fields available. 
  • To get a feel for it, change over time to say over device_​type
  • change the column type to bar”
  • change split by from “(none)” to type”
  • This will give you a breakdown for each device type, further split by incoming / outgoing / internal call counts. 

Drill down on any chart to see the calls behind it

  • From any displayed chart in the Chart page, click a bar or column or line marker. 
  • A context menu will appear. Select investigate these calls and you will go to the Investigate Calls page, with additional searchterms added to narrow down to just the calls representing the column or bar you clicked on.
