CallClerk - History Window

The CallClerk - History window provides a listing of received calls; from this window you can review all history records on file and, if you like, sort, dial, print or delete them.

You can also use this window to play the messages recorded on calls.

A reverse number lookup can also be performed on any history entry.

All history records are displayed in the CallClerk - History window. Abbreviated and Full History Windows

The History window has two formats: abbreviated and full.

To switch between abbreviated and full formats, click the View - More Detail option off the menu bar.

Viewing Incoming and Outgoing Calls

Click on View - Incoming Calls and/or View Outgoing Calls to select which types of calls you would like to see in the CallClerk - History Window; by default both types are shown.

Please note: With respect to placed calls, Clerk can only log calls that are placed via the CallClerk Dial Pad; it will not record calls place by, for example, an extension phone.

Sorting

By default history records are sorted based on the date and time they were recorded. To change the sort order of the history records click on any one of the headings in the Call History table and the history records will be resorted based on criteria specific to that heading. Clicking on the same heading more than once changes the sort order from ascending to descending (and visa versa).

Filtering

Click on View and 'Incoming Calls', 'Outgoing Calls', or 'Unreviewed Messages / Faxes' to filter the viewing of history entries.

Searching

By default history entries shown. To search for specific history entries by directory name just type the name you are searching for in the search box at the bottom of the window. As you type the history entries not matching your search criteria will be dynamically filtered out. To clear your search criteria click on the picture of the magnifying glass at the bottom of the window.

Dialing

The phone number associated with a history record can be dialed by selecting the history record (click on the grey box to the left of the history record to do this) and then selecting File – Dial from the CallClerk - History window’s menu bar.

Printing

To print a report of all history records, select 'File - Print' from the CallClerk - History window’s menu bar.

Working with whocalled.us

Once you have set up an account on whocalled.us you can use the service to confirm the name of a caller and /or report a nuisance caller to the service.

To perform either of these functions, just click on Edit and then either "Check whocalled.us for caller's identity" or ''Report to whocalled.us" - please see CallClerk - Settings - Call Blocking for more information

Updating Web Page

If you have made changes to your history log, for example if you have deleted a message or call, you can manually update your web page by clicking on File - Update Web Page.

Note: this will be done for you automatically the next time a call is received if you have the update web page setting turned to on in the Control Panel.

Link to Directory

From time to time your modem may report an unknown caller to CallClerk even thought the caller id information shows up on a caller id box attached to the same line. In these cases CallClerk allows you to 'touch up' the History entry by associating a caller (already listed in your Directory) with the call.

When the caller id number is unknown, select the History entry and click the 'Edit' - 'Link to Directory' menu commands to touch it up. When you do this CallClerk will open up the CallClerk - Directory - simply double click on the Directory entry you want to associate the call with and CallClerk will do the rest (following a confirmation prompt).

If the caller info is not unknown you can still touch it up, however you will have to press the ALT key as you select the History entry in order to do so.

Deleting

History records can be deleted by selecting the history record(s) to be deleted and then clicking on Edit – Delete from the CallClerk - History window’s menu bar.

To select a single history record to be deleted, click on the grey box to the left of the history record;
