Log Calls as Incidents

When a call with an identified ServiceNow user ends, a new browser tab pops up, containing an incident (call log) notification in ServiceNow with information on the caller, call time, duration, and more. From this tab, you can fill in additional information to give the incident more context for future reference. This same action occurs for unknown number inbound and outbound calls. You can update and access incidents by searching for them in ServiceNow.

Note: In Virtual Office, saved call information is referred to as a call log. In ServiceNow, this same type of information is referred to as an incident.

If you selected to record the call through control panel, a link to the recording is included in the incident’s description field.

Note: If your call is with an unknown number or a number that matches multiple users, you must assign the call to the correct user in the incident display if you have not done so during the call.
