Call History

Call History allows you to view information about the last 150 calls on your phone. The Call History lists individual calls and call groups chronologically from the most recent call to the oldest one. If your phone has multiple lines, calls on all lines are added together. The oldest calls over the 150-call limit are dropped from the history.

In the Call History screen, the line information (such as "Line: 5623") displays in the upper right corner to indicate the line name or number for which the call history is displayed.

If set up by your administrator, you see icons beside each Call History entry. The icon shows the status (Unknown, Idle, Busy, or DND) of the person who made the call.

For each call record or call group, an icon to the left of the caller ID shows the call type:

  • Received:
  • Placed:
  • Missed:

If the caller ID is unavailable, "Unknown" is displayed, and the phone number is listed.

Calls for the same caller ID and phone number are grouped together only when if they occur in chronological order and do not have calls associated. For each group, the time of the latest call and the number of calls (such as "(3)") are displayed:

  • Incoming (Received) and outgoing (Placed) calls are grouped together.
  • Missed calls are grouped together in a separate group.

For each individual call record or call group, the phone number is listed in blue and is contact sensitive for touch dialing.

Hunt group and multiparty calls show an icon to the right of the caller ID that differentiates the call from a normal call, and these calls are not grouped even when they are next to each other in the list.

A plus (+) symbol on entries in call history, redial, or call directory indicates that your phone is set up to list international calls. For more information, contact your system administrator.

The received and placed calls from shared lines are logged in the Call History. To view all the call history logs, open the Call History screen. The following table describes the call state, icon, and tag for shared lines.

                Cisco IP Manager Assistant

                Cisco IP Manager Assistant (IPMA) provides call routing and other call management features to help managers and assistants handle phone calls more effectively. The IPMA call routing service intercepts calls that are made to managers and routes them to specified assistants, to other managers, or to targets defined by preconfigured call filters. A manager can change the call routing dynamically.

                IPMA has three key components:
                Manager

                A manager is the user whose incoming calls are intercepted by the call routing service.

                Assistant

                An assistant is the user who handles calls on behalf of a manager.

                Assistant Console

                The assistant console is a desktop application that can be used by assistants to perform tasks and manage most features.

                Your system administrator configures IPMA to function in shared-line mode or in proxy-line mode. If your phone is configured in shared-line mode, the assistant phone and the manager phone share the same directory number. In proxy-line mode, the assistant has a primary line and proxy lines to handle calls for managers.

                Manager Phones

                The manager phone makes all manager features available with the exception of Manager Configuration. Managers access the Manager Configuration feature using the web. Your system administrator provides the URL. Use Manager Configuration to set the default assistant, redirect target, inclusive filters, and exclusive filters.

                To be designated a manager phone, the phone must have a line with a directory number. An intercom line is optional. If an intercom line is enabled, the current active assistant is the target for the intercom. If there are no active assistants, no speed dial target exists for the intercom.

                The manager accesses the Assistant Watch, Intercept Call, Divert, and Transfer to Voice Mail features from the phone softkeys.

                IPMA automatically logs in a manager when the Cisco IP Manager Assistant service starts. To access Assistant Services, the manager phone needs to subscribe to the Assistant Primary Phone Service. You subscribe to services from the Application Menu.

                Manager Status Window

                The Manager Status window is divided into the Assistant Watch area and the Assistant and Features area. The Assistant Watch area is located at the top of the status window and displays the caller ID as well as the elapsed time for an active call handled by an assistant. The Assistant and Features area displays icons to indicate the presence of an active assistant and icons to display the status of manager features. If a feature is turned off, the feature icon displays a red, barred circle.


                Note


                In shared-line mode, the Assistant Watch area is hidden, and only Do Not Disturb is available in the Assistant and Features area.


                Assistant Watch status messages are displayed in the title bar of the Assistant Watch area.

                Table 1 Assistant Watch Messages
                Message Meaning

                Assistant Watch - On

                Call from followed by caller ID

                An incoming call was redirected to the assistant and is currently ringing on the assistant's phone. The manager can intercept the call.

                Caller ID and a timer

                The assistant answered the incoming call.

                The timer begins when the assistant answers, or otherwise handles, the call.

                Filtering Down

                Call Filtering is unavailable at this time.

                    Assistant Phones

                    Assistants access the IPMA features on the computer using the Assistant Console application or directly on the assistant phone through phone services and softkeys.

                    Your administrator configures IPMA in either proxy-line or shared-line mode. In shared-line mode, the assistant phone and the manager phone share a single directory number. In proxy-line mode, the assistant phone has a primary line and proxy lines to handle calls for manager phones.

                    To access Assistant Services, the assistant phone needs to subscribe to the Assistant Primary Phone Service. It may also be necessary to subscribe to Assistant Secondary Phone Services. You subscribe to services from the Application menu.

                    To handle calls for managers, the assistant phone must log in to the IPMA service. IPMA supports Single Sign On (SSO). If you have logged into the Assistant Console you do not need to log in to the IPMA service on the phone.

                    A optional intercom line can be configured if required. The intercom line is a dedicated line; it can only be used to speak to a specific manager phone, even if the assistant phone is associated with multiple managers.

                    Assistant Console

                    The Assistant Console is an application interface that can be used by assistants to manage IPMA features and services.

                    Assistant Settings Menu

                    You configure some assistant phone options in the Assistant Settings menu. The following table describes the options available in the Assistant Settings menu.

                          Manager Settings Menu on Assistant Phone

                          The Manager Settings menu is used to manage applicable settings on behalf of each associated manager that appears in the manager list of the Assistant Manager Status window. The available settings depend on whether your phone is configured in shared-line mode or in proxy-line mode.

                          In shared-line mode, only the Do Not Disturb feature can be set by the assistant.

                          In proxy-line mode, the Manager Settings menu on the assistant phone is similar to the Manager Settings menu on the manager phone. Note that the assistant cannot specify the active assistant phone for the manager phone, but Do Not Disturb and Divert Calls can be toggled by the assistant. The assistant is also able to set the manager divert target for the selected manager. If the divert target is set to be blank, then the divert target is saved as Assistant.

                                        Call Notifications

                                        Custom Line Filters enable you to reduce alert activity by filtering it to high-priority lines by allowing you to set the alerting call notification priority on a subset of lines covered by an alert filter. The custom filter generates either traditional pop-up alerts or actionable alerts for incoming calls on the selected lines. For each filter, only the subset of lines under coverage will generate an alert. If a filter is turned off, lines under its coverage will not show alert notifications.

                                        The administrator configures the default line filter, which is visible to you as the Daily schedule filter. Even if the administrator has not configured the default filter, the all calls filter and custom filter options are available to you. If you have not created any custom filters all provisioned lines are covered by the default line filter if it exists, or all calls if it does not.

                                        You can create and manage your filters from the Call notifications menu option, available under Applications > Preferences on your phone.


                                        Note


                                        If both the Custom Line Filters and the Actionable Incoming Call Alert features are enabled, actionable call alerts apply only to the lines that are covered by filters.

                                                                                      For information on accessing and changing the Administrator Settings, contact your system administrator.

                                                                                      VPN Client

                                                                                      The VPN Client establishes a virtual private network (VPN) connection on your phone when a phone is located outside a trusted network or when network traffic crosses untrusted networks. Your system administrator configures the VPN Client feature as needed.

                                                                                      If your phone is configured for VPN Client, the status of Auto-Detect Network Connection determines if a VPN connection is possible. The status depends on the following situations:
                                                                                      • When your phone is located outside the corporate network:
                                                                                        • If Auto-Detect Network Connection is disabled, a VPN connection is possible. The Sign In screen appears, and the phone prompts for credentials. On the phone in the VPN window ( Applications > VPN), you can toggle the VPN Enabled field to control the ability of the phone to attempt a VPN connection.
                                                                                        • If Auto-Detect Network Connection is enabled, the Sign In screen appears, and the phone prompts for your credentials, based on the authentication method that your system administrator configured on your phone.
                                                                                      • When your phone is located inside the corporate network:
                                                                                        • If Auto-Detect Network Connection is disabled, a VPN connection is possible. The Sign In screen appears, and the phone prompts for credentials. On the phone in the VPN window (Applications > VPN), you can toggle the VPN Enabled field to control the ability of the phone to attempt a VPN connection.
                                                                                        • If Auto-Detect Network Connection is enabled, you cannot connect through VPN, so the Sign In screen does not appear, and the phone does not prompt for credentials.

                                                                                      To view VPN status messages, press Applications and then select Administrator Settings > Status > Status Messages. For more information, contact your system administrator.

                                                                                      Connect Through VPN

                                                                                      Procedure
                                                                                        Step 1   After you turn on your phone and the VPN Sign In screen appears (except with certificate authentication mode), enter your credentials based on the configured authentication method:
                                                                                        • Username and password: Enter the username and the password that your system administrator gave you.
                                                                                        • Certificate and password: Enter the password that your system administrator gave you. Your username is derived from the certificate.
                                                                                        • Certificate: If the phone uses only a certificate for authentication, the Sign In screen does not appear, and phone displays the status of the phone attempting the VPN connection.
                                                                                        When the power is lost or reset under some circumstances, the stored credentials are  cleared.
                                                                                        Step 2   Select Sign In to connect. If you press Cancel while the phone is attempting the connection, the connection attempt stops, and the Sign In screen appears again. If you press Cancel again, the VPN menu appears and shows the VPN Enabled field as Off. The phone will not attempt a VPN connection again until you set the VPN Enabled field to On.

                                                                                        VPN Connection Settings

                                                                                        The VPN window (Applications > VPN) consists of these fields:

                                                                                        • Enable or disable VPN: If Auto-Detect Network Connection is disabled, toggle the VPN Enabled field to control the ability of the phone to attempt a VPN connection.
                                                                                        • Change credentials: Select Change Credentials to change the user ID and password. If the authentication is certificate-only or VPN Enabled is Off, the option is dimmed.
                                                                                        • View VPN status: The VPN Status field displays Connected or Not Connected.

                                                                                        Cisco VXC VPN

                                                                                        The Cisco VXC VPN provides integrated VPN functionality for Cisco Virtualization Experience Clients (Cisco VXC) 2111 and 2112. The feature enables VPN tunneling for the Cisco VXC 2111 and Cisco VXC 2112 clients when they are attached to a Cisco Unified IP Phone.

                                                                                        Your administrator must enable the Cisco VXC VPN functionality. You can then start the VPN connection for the Cisco VXC by signing in to the VPN for the attached IP phone.

                                                                                        Your administrator can set up the phone to direct all traffic across one shared VPN tunnel or split the phone and Cisco VXC traffic between two separate tunnels. In the latter case, your administrator can also set up the phone to prompt you to sign in only once to establish both tunnels or to sign in separately for each tunnel.

                                                                                        Whether you are using single or dual tunnels, the VXC VPN Status appears as Connected when the Cisco VXC is successfully connected to a VPN tunnel.

                                                                                        Status and Statistics

                                                                                        To view Cisco VXC VPN status messages, choose Applications > VPN, and check the VXC VPN Status field.
