Call logging

I have the need to view what calls have been made by a certain extension, for how long, to where, etc. How can I do this. Is it possible though Definity Site Admin? What's the command? Thanks -

RE: Call logging

This would be accomplished through CDR.  Depending on your switch type G3r, G3si, Prologix, Definity One, it is activated using the "change system cdr" command.  If you have ans G3si you can use the serial port on the back of the switch to output to a computer to collect the information.  Other PBX type require a data module to provide CDR output.  If you look at the Definity FAQ you will see several topics containing specific details as to how to program it.  Hope this helps


RE: Call logging

Keep in mind this data will not be available on any calls made before you set up CDR so if you are looking for previous reports sorry it is not possible.


Please let me know if this was helpful

RE: Call logging

cha sys cdr
sta cdr link
busy / rel cdr link

Connect via DB25 to EIA / DCE port on back of switch.

It's easy to hook up a PC using Hyperterminal or Procomm Plus.  This will let you save the session's text to a server share somewhere.   Our CDR data is now 26MB.

You can easily manipulate using Excel.

If you want any more info let me know.

Just in case you're interested I've pasted a sample config below.  Sorry about the formatting - Paste to notepad for easier reading.

RE: Call logging

Wow, Thanks guys. I have found some useful info on CDR, so thanks again!

RE: Call logging

You can use the CDR for this, but if you want to track the intercom calls also, you need to use the -intra switch CDR- feature, that allows to recorf information in the CDR of the DEFINITY.

just use the command:  change intra-switch-cdr

and choose the stations you need to track
