CallClerk - Settings Web Page Window

The CallClerk - Settings - Web Page window allows you to set up your preferences for uploading a web page, as well as optionally messages and faxes, each time a call is receive.
 A screen shot of an example web page is included at the bottom of this document.

If you decide to upload your messages and/or faxes you will be able to access them while online by double clicking on the associated icon on your web page.

Web Hosting with FTP (File Transfer Protocol) required

To make use of this function you will require a web site domain name and a hosting service that allows for FTP file transfer. Depending on your internet service provider you may or may not have this already. If you do not have these services you will need to get them in order to use this particular function of CallClerk. Domain name registration and Hosting services can be purchased separately from different providers or you can get them together as a package. These services do no come bundled with CallClerk.

One provider that offers both Domain Name Registration and Hosting Services as bundled package is LunarPages.

You can click on the link above or the banner to the right to get more information on the Services and Costs offered by Lunar Pages.

CallClerk has been hosted by Lunarpages since April 2004, their service and support are excellent.

A word about Privacy (Password protecting your web page)

Posting a list of your calls, messages and faxes on the internet may lead to privacy issues for some.

Accordingly it is important to note that with some hosting services, such as LunarPages, you can add password protection to prevent your web page from being generally viewed by everyone. If you desire this level of protection you should check with your hosting provider to see if they offer it. How to set it up with Lunar Pages is explained below.

Additionally, the web page that CallClerk builds for you by default has embedded in it an instruction to web site search engines robots telling them not to index the page. Accordingly even if you choose not to password protect access to your web page this feature will prevent most search engines from indexing your web page.

Incoming and Outgoing Calls:
The CallClerk - Settings - Web Page window allows you chose if you what only incoming calls, only outgoing calls or both incoming and outgoing calls listed on your web page.
Messages and Faxes

Where there is an associated message/recording or fax with a call, you can chose if you what these uploaded or not.

If you choose to upload your messages or faxes then CallClerk will only upload them if they are not already on your web server.

Uploaded messages can be placed on your server in a variety of formats. When CallClerk records a message it uses the highest quality possible, this however results in a large file.

You can click the Auto Format button to set an audio format which will result in a smaller file size for file upload. Many, if not all, the smaller file sizes offer sound quality that can be quite acceptable to some. The advantage of using a smaller file size are that the upload and playing processes go much faster, you bandwidth is saved, and CallClerk may be able to reset itself to accept the next incoming call faster.

Link to an Internet Reverse Lookup service:
The phone number displayed by CallClerk on your web page can optionally include a hyper link to a web page look up service.

Click the 'Google Number' or '411 Number' to you these services, or use your own - you can use substitutions similar to those describe for CallClerk's reverse number lookup function.

Leave this field blank if you do not want to link to an internet reverse number lookup.

Days to report:
Enter the number of days that you want, from the present, that you want to have reported on your web page. 1 day means just today,2 days means today and yesterday, and so on. 0 days means all days in your history log.

Web Page address:
Enter the full web page address, for example:
http://www.yourwebsitegoeshere.com/phonelog/history.html

Notes:

1: the web page address must end with /history.html or /directory.html

2. if your web site is being hosted by a web site hosting company, such as Lunarpages, the web site address should begin with http://

3: if your web site is an internal site, you should enter the drive, path and file name (instead of the http://), as an example:

F:/callclerkinternalsite/history.html

Doing this will trigger CallClerk to copy the files via your network as opposed to FTPing them.

4: When you click the test button your directory and history web pages will be uploaded and CallClerk will open the web page that you specify in the Web Page address text box.
