Voicemail Reports Module Now Available for FreePBX

Call centers and businesses have long been utilizing call recording of queues and extensions to monitor employee’s calls and customer service levels, but a missing component was the ability to easily listen to voicemail messages left for internal user’s extensions. This module adds a quick way for system administrators and managers to review and listen to all users messages from one report.  This can be useful for employee performance monitoring, and ensuring that voicemails are responded to in a timely manner.  

Voice Mail Reports also adds the ability for a System Administrator to view and listen to all voicemail greetings and name recordings on the PBX, as well as the ability to quickly see which voicemail accounts have not completed the setup of Voice Mail Name, Greeting and email forwarding addresses.  This can save time during system setup and maintenance windows to ensure optimal performance and usage of voicemail services.

Trac Downtime

UPDATE: The migration to Jira went perfectly!

Good News Everyone!

This coming Sunday (August 4th) our old bug tracking system will experience some down time after 6pm PST. We will finally be migrating to JIRA at the new address of http://issues.freepbx.org. Any old Trac links will redirect to the new location automatically. During this transition time Trac and Jira will both be down for maintenance while we perform the migration and upgrades. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

This is the first step in our “Road To Github” initiative.

PS. Attachments will finally work again. I know, I know. It’s been too long.

Thanks for supporting FreePBX,
Schmoozecom, Inc/FreePBX
