Save your search filter

You can save your search filters, and run them the next time you need for a faster search. For example, you can search for all the inbound queued calls you or your agent have received in the last month which lasted under 20 seconds, and save your search criteria. If you want to include all calls in the day, you must set the ending time to the end of the day (either select 23:45, or manually enter 23:59).
