About Recent Communications

Your call history appears in the Recent Communications pane, so you can easily see and return calls and listen to voice mail.

The Recent Communication pane lists all voice-mail messages you have received, and up to 50 received, initiated, or missed calls.

New voice-mail messages appear in the list within one minute of being recorded.

Calls that you make or answer using your desk phone only appear in the Recent Communications list if Cisco Unified Personal Communicator is running. Calls you make appear only if phone mode is Desk Phone. Voice mail appears regardless.

If you log on from different computers, only calls that you make and receive while you are logged into a particular computer appear in the recent communications list on that computer. Voice mail appears regardless.

1. Look at the first column in the Recent Communications pane. Icons show the type of communication.

See a count of new missed calls or voice mails

Look at the icon at the top of the Recent Communications pane. The icon to the left of the number indicates its type.

The count adjusts each time you open an "unread" item, whether or not you listen to the voice mail. A counter does not appear if you have no unread items of that type.

At your company, these indicators may not display numbers. If you see an icon, there is at least one new item of the type indicated.
