Call Detail Record

Using the call detail record (CDRCall Detail Record includes call details such as point of origin,end point, call direction, call duration, and more.), see the entire call journey from start to finish. This report is ideal for tracing a specific call to see how the call was routed, who answered the call, the duration of the call, whether the call was placed on hold, the duration of the hold, whether the caller or callee disconnected during the hold, and more. The CDR provides information about all inbound and outbound calls processed within the time frame the user selects. Access to the call path helps you determine any patterns that may need attention within the company. Complex calls are handled with one CDR per call leg.

NOTE: We have now introduced an enhanced version of the call detail record report in beta. Learn more.

Filtering Call Details Records

You can now filter data in call details records by multiple parameters such as branch office, department, caller, callee, and more.

To add filters, click Add Filter drop down menu and select a desired filter. You can add multiple filters.

Call Detail Record Metrics Example Details
Call ID 131742827522 This is the unique identifier for each originating call on the 8x8 system. As the original call flows through the 8x8 system, the Call ID will typically remain the same for the duration of the original call. However, there are a few scenarios in which the originating call transitions to a new Call ID. The most common scenario is a warm/consult transfer; the value of the Transfer to Call ID field can help identify calls that transitioned to a new Call ID. Filter for all call legs within the same Call ID show each call leg for the journey of that originating call.
Leg ID 3 As an originating call moves from one extension another, a new Call ID will be created for reflect this transition. Filtering for a single Call ID may result in multiple call legs for the same Call ID. This is useful to see the journey from extension to extension for a single originating call.
Start Time 8/31/2017 8:34 This is the time the call originated on the phone system. For outbound calls, this is the time the was dialed/placed. For inbound calls, this is the time the call came into the phone system and started alerting.
Connected Time 8/31/2017 8:34 This is the time that the call transitioned from alerting to connected. This is logged for each call leg.
If a direct call to a user rings but the caller disconnects before the call is answered, the connect time is listed as 0:00:00 for that call leg. There are multiple system events that can transition a call to connected without a user answering the phone. For example, when an auto attendant plays a prompt or Music on Hold, this causes the system to connect the call before playing the audio. In these cases, the connect time is established when the prompt or music is played.
For call legs where a user did answer the phone, the connected time is the time between alerting the user and when the user answered for that call leg.
Stop Time 8/31/2017 8:35 This is the time that the call was disconnected from the system.
Talk Time 0:01:02 This is the time that the call was connected to a live person. Only user type extensions that connect to a call will be considered a live person. Talk time does include the time the call was on hold while connected to a user-type extension. It does not include any time when the call is connected to voicemail.
Caller +1 (408) 924-5200 This is the phone number for the call that was placed. In most cases, this will be the same as the caller ID, phone number, or ANI. The separate caller ID stat in the CDR will show both the name and number for the "caller".
Caller Name Shawn Myan This is the name associated with the caller number. For external inbound calls, this is most often the name that was provided by the carrier. For internal calls, this will be the name associated with the extension placing the call.
Callee 2001 This is the phone number for the destination of the call that was placed. For calls to 8x8 (internal or external), this is the target extension number. For external outbound calls, this is the external phone.
Callee Name Reception Desk This is the name associated with the Callee number. For calls to 8x8 (internal or external), this will be the target extension number. For external outbound calls, the system does not know the name of the external party; the Callee Name will be listed as N/A. When users connect to Virtual Office Meetings audio via desktop or mobile, the Callee is listed as “Virtual Office Meeting” (Callee Name = N/A).
Last Re-direct Address RingGroup This is the user extension number or service type that transferred/redirected the call.
Direction Incoming Was the originating call external incoming, external outgoing or internal (extension-to-extension).
Parent Call ID N/A This is used for Call Queues and Ring Groups.

The system creates these child calls in case the agent does not answer the call. The child call can be disconnected without disrupting the parent call.
Transfer to Call ID N/A This is most commonly used in warm/consult transfer scenarios where a new call ID is branched from the originating call ID. This stat is used to keep track of the call id where the call was branched.
Dial-In Number 14082212000 This only applies to external inbound calls and it is the DIDDirect Inward Dialing phone number dialed or DNIS.

For external inbound calls, this is typically the name and number provided by the carrier. 8x8 offers options to change the Caller ID to present to internal users. For example, see the Ring Group settings.

Abandoned - A call leg is counted as abandoned if that call leg was never connected to a user-type extension. Even if the call alerted a user and the user did not answer, the call is counted as abandoned. However, call legs that go to voicemail are not counted as abandoned.
Answered Answered A call leg is counted as answered if that call leg was connected to a user-type extension, indicating that the call was connected to a user, and talk time will increment.
