VoIP Detective 1.102

CUCM user data synchronization is here! Now your call reports will not only include the extension (i.e 2345) associated with a call, but also the user’s name (i.e. 2345 – Bugs Bunny).
Using a read-only connection from VoIP Detective to Cisco Call Manager, PRO users can pull user data from their CUCM installation into VoIP Detective (populating the Display Name fields).
This data pull will allow your reports to show the name of the of the CUCM end user associated with that telephone number.

Information on how to setup this CUCM sync can be found here: Synchronizing data between CUCM and VoIP Detective

VoIP Detective 1.009

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.

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.
