Multi-Target Filter

Users & Groups


Filter by User, Office, Department, Call Center, or Coaching Team


By default, if you’re an Office or Company Admin, when you first click into your analytics it will be filtered to All Calls for Entire Office. If you are an Individual Team Member, you will see data just for you.

To filter your data by user or group click on the drop-down arrow to search through a list of your users and group lines. You will have the ability to filter for the following:

  • User Calls: show calls from that user both individual and as an agent/operator for a group they belong to; you can filter this further by any group they belong to
  • Groups Calls (Department, Main Line, or Call Center): show all calls made by Agents on behalf of those groups; does not include personal calls from those Agents/Operators
  • Coaching Team Calls: show all individual calls made by the team members, excluding Call Center calls

When a target has been added, you can add another to the filter. Select Add another user or Add another group in the filter draw and enter another target of the same type.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Can I search for more than one user or group at the same time?

You can search for a user within a group. For example, if you are filtering your Finance Department group, you can filter for agent Jon Doe as well.

How far back will this data go?

Call records of your company’s entire history are accessible.

Can I export the call history?

Not from the Call History menu, but you can switch to the Analytics menu that includes charting data and then export call logs to obtain call history.

Can I delete calls from Call History?

Yes. When you delete a call from Call History and that call is deleted in the app, it'll take 24 hours for the deletion to disappear in your web call history.

I don't see any calls in Call History when I filter for both an individual and a coaching team. Why?


As of October 18, 2021, you should be able to see calls when using both the individual's name and coaching team as a filter. To find calls before October 18, 2021, simply search for the individual or the coaching team instead of using both filters simultaneously.
