# Configuring Missed Call Notification and Alerts

Missed Call Alerts monitors extensions associated to a user within Cisco Callmanager, and notifies users if they miss a call on any lines, even shared lines associated with their CCM End User Associated devices.

# Feature Overview:

  • Missed Call detection for User's Cisco IP Phones, Cisco Jabber
  • Monitored all lines associated with a Cisco User
  • Email and Webex Teams Notifications with one click callback or message back buttons
  • Customizable Email and Webex Body Text and Subjects
  • Automatic User Synchronization with your Cisco Callmanager User Directory
  • Shared line support
  • Daily Admin Report of Missed Call Activities
  • Number Prefixing for Callbacks

# Shared line support

If the called line is a shared line, the Caller ID Name is found from the End User associations within Cisco Callmanager. When matched as a shared line, it will be labeled as a shared line caller in the alert. All users associated with the shared line notification will receive alerts.

# Feature Requirements for Missed Call Alerts

# Configure Global Missed Call Notifications Settings

You can customize several options within the Settings page:

  • Change Email Subject
  • Change HTML and Webex Body Text to the body of the email.
  • Add Markdown text formatting to the body text of the message.
  • Add a maximum length to apply prefix. Depending your dialplan, some calls already have area codes prefixed.
  • Add Number Prefix for easier callback. You might have a 7 digit, or 10 digit dialplan area that needs prefixing of the local country code.

You can configure these settings on the Missed Call Alerts tab in the Call Telemetry Settings page, shown below. Settings for Missed Call Alerts

# Verifing Missed Call Alerts

Make a call to a phone, and let it ring, but do not answer. You should receive an email or Webex alert within a 2 minutes. It takes a moment for CDR to be generated, and processed, and for the email to arrive.

Below are examples of what the user will see when they receive a missed call alert.
