Enabling Cradle to Grave reporting.

A single call is often just 1 of many in a sequence of “related” calls, such as when a call is answered and then forwarded to another recipient. The chronological order of calls is commonly referred to as the “Cradle to Grave” sequence, which shows the complete order from 1st to last.

Cradle to grave can create a large report due to the row by row reporting of all hops a call takes from start to finish. If your report is already very large you may want to report a on smaller subset of data when enabling cradle to grave.

  1. Edit the report.
  2. Navigate to the Cradle to Grave Page
  3. Enable the first toggle to turn “Toggle All Cradle to Grave Options” on.
