Advanced Call Reports


Portal Permissions


Please note that there are 3 segments that define the roles for users in Advanced Reporting:

  1. User Access Types:
      • Essential User: The user is linked to a user on VirtualPBX. Once a user is created on your Dash account, that user will also be created in the Advanced Reports portal within a few minutes. Essential Users cannot create reports.
      • Professional User: A communications platform user with access to softphone and mobile features, including Softphone Connect
      • Agent User Add-On: Allows the user to have their ACD Agent activity tracked. Without this ACD queue agents will not have any queue call information in the Reports portal. This item should be automatically enabled when allowing a user to have queue access, otherwise known as an “Agent”
  1. Supervisor Access Types:
      • None
      • Reports Supervisor: has access to historical reporting features. They can create and run reports. Giving this permission automatically gives the user Website Access permission as well.
      • Real-Time Supervisor: access to historical reporting features and wallboard features. Wallboard features allow for near real time data to be transmitted and displayed on a monitor or Amazon FireTV so that many people can view the data for the current day.
  1. Permissions:
      • Website Access: grants the user access to the Dimensions web portal. This is a baseline permission that would need to be enabled for users.
      • Manage Users: allows the user to create and manage users.
      • Manage Billable Items: allows the user to make changes that will affect billing.
      • Customer Settings: allows the user to edit organization-wide settings.
      • Manage Contact Directories: allows the user to manage contact directories.
      • Recording Playback: allows the user to play call recordings.

Portal Permissions can be changed at any time by visiting Click on “Settings” then “User Management”. You will be given the option to “Edit” an existing user or add a “New User”.
