SummaryThis article discusses the Call Log feature on the RingCentral Online account.

Call Log - Overview

The Call Log displays a complete record of incoming and outgoing calls, as well as faxes for the company number and specified extensions. The view can be customized according to a period of time, type of call (inbound or outbound), blocked calls or recorded calls. It allows reports to be saved and delivered to a designated email address on a daily, weekly, monthly basis or on specified days. 

Logs are stored in your RingCentral Online account for 1 year or until you delete them. For more information, check Message Storage and Account Data Retention.

IMPORTANT: Call log shows raw data of all the incoming and outgoing calls and faxes made by the entire account; the Analytics Portal contains reports that provide enhanced data visualization, allowing you to access dashboards with over 30 key performance metrics, as well as view trends and call patterns for a period of time. 

NOTE: Administrators can either allow or restrict Users from viewing the Call Log by granting permissions, assigning roles to specified Users. You may also disable the Call Log feature by customizing the User Roles and Permissions and assigning the Role to your specified Users. See the following references for more information:

Incoming fax to your phone number or extension.


Forward attempts to your RingCentral Forwarding Number.

Calling Card

Outgoing call using the RingCentral Virtual Calling Card feature.

The Result column can be interpreted as follows:




The incoming call was accepted by the extension it rang or was forwarded to.


The extension that is being attempted to ring was busy. This means the user is on Do Not Disturb.

Call Connected

This shows an outbound call was connected to the dialed number. This happens after the status "Accepted" on an incoming call and indicates which phone in a sequence of phones took the call.

Hang Up

This means the inbound caller hung up before being successfully connected.

In Progress

This is an inbound or outbound call that is occurring at the moment while viewing the logs.

(Keep in mind that call logs do not refresh automatically on your web browser. If a call is ended while viewing, the logs may still state that the call is “In Progress” until refreshed.)

IP Phone Offline

The softphone or desk phone the Extension attempted to ring is offline or not connected to the RingCentral servers.


The call rang the extension and no device under that extension answered the call.

No Answer

This applies to individual IP devices that rang but did not answer.


This is found under a call queue or sequence of phones in a user extension. It indicates that these phones stopped ringing because the call was answered on another device.


The inbound call rang to or was sent directly to voicemail.

International Disabled

This was an attempted international call that was blocked due to lack of permissions on the account level.


The inbound call was either sent directly to voicemail or blocked.

Wrong Number

An Internal extension dialed an outside number that does not exist or is no longer in service.

Here are some examples that illustrate how the Call Log can be interpreted.

Example 1: Call Log - Admin View 

We received an incoming call from (650) 458 0437, and the caller dialed our number (609) 270 5077. The caller pressed extension 2 to reach Call Queue 1. We have 2 agents answering phone calls from our Call Queue 1 and that would be Sam Smith and Jane Smith. Jane on Ext-103 answered the call and it was connected for 11 seconds.

Example 2: Call Log - User's View

The User can only view calls going to/from her extension. In the example below, the User received an incoming call from (650) 458 0437, and the caller dialed the Main number (609) 270 5077.
