No, calls that are forwarded to external numbers are not reported. It is not possible to determine whether the call was answered by the external number.

Does Easy Call Report recognize missed calls that are forwarded to voicemail?

What happens if Microsoft delivers the required data late?

Easy Call Report requires the call records from Microsoft to determine whether a call to a call queue has been accepted or missed. In rare cases, Microsoft may publish this data in your tenant with a delay (up to 60 minutes). If Microsoft does not send a call record due to technical problems, Easy Call Record cannot process the call.

Can I see which user has completed a card?

Yes, Easy Call Report saves the user and the time as soon as the card has been completed. For answered calls, all users who have taken part in the call are displayed.

What happens when I press the "Task completed" button?

The map is closed by pressing the button. When the map is updated, the color changes from red to green and the buttons disappear. On the updated card you will still see the original information such as date, time, caller number and (if available) name. You can also see when the card was completed and who completed it. The card is updated for all team/channel members.

Can I see if a number has tried to call me several times?

Yes, Easy Call Report sends a message for each missed call so that you can see whether there is a high degree of urgency because a customer has tried to reach you several times.

Why does it sometimes take longer than 30 minutes until I receive a message?

Easy Call Report depends on how quickly Microsoft makes the call records available. Microsoft specifies an average time of 15 minutes. In rare cases, however, it can take up to 60 minutes for a call record to be made available. Easy Call Report itself works without delay and delivers the message immediately afterwards.
