Get the celebration Started! Our latest upgrade, version 1.009 is the largest to date. We are incredibly proud of all the new features, bug-fixes, and ease of use this version will provide. Before we put on our dancing shoes, we want to take a minute to say thank you! Without our wonderful users giving us requests and suggestions, this latest version wouldn’t be as magnificent (yes, we said it).
The first improvement is the introduction of “Display Names”. You suggested and we listened. This was our most requested feature. Available in our PRO version, the admin can now put actual names to phone extensions. We know, your team is so much more than a number. This is only available in a couple of reports currently, but will be rolled out to all reports shortly.
Also, giving power to the admins, administrators now have more flexibility in the admin search. You can now search by “contains, begins, ends with, or is exactly”. With this, you can zero in on the exact results you’re looking for.
Administrators can now use filters to zero in on the data they are looking for
Administrators can assign display names to replace extensions with user or group names
Thank you again to our valuable users for your suggestions. The majority of the fixes and upgrade additions in this release have comes directly from your requests. Please know that we take your suggestions to heard and together we are creating the best, most user friendly call reporting system there is.

Cisco’s Unified Communications Manager (CUCM) is build to allow third party applications to provide call reports. This means that Call Manager will provide raw call logs, called CDRs (Call Detail Records) to whatever destination the engineer specifies. In fact, you can have up to three report destinations defined in Call Manager, allowing for multiple call reporting servers. Once you specify the address of your call reporting server inside of CUCM, it will begin pushing CDR files to that server. I believe it’s also important to mention that you can use the CDR Analysis and Reporting (CAR) to extract CDR files from CUCM. This will allow you to either manually review the CDR, or to manually feed it to a reporting / analyzing program.
