What's Available in Lead Center
CallRail uses extended caller ID to obtain information in Lead Center associated with each caller's phone number.
With Lead Center, you can place an outbound phone call to any telephone number through one of your tracking numbers. This includes returning calls to customers who have already dialed your tracking number or placing arbitrary calls to another telephone number you wish to call.
Lead Center divides callers into three different categories:
- Calling Now: Customers who are currently calling your tracking phone number, but whose call has not yet been answered.
- Active Calls: Customers who are currently speaking with a representative.
- Recently: Customer who recently called your tracking phone numbers. This list will display the 25 most recent callers.
Each caller will also have their own Timeline. The information presented in the timeline will look similar to the information you see on the individual caller's timelines. This includes:
- Previous calls from the customer
- Call recordings
- Text conversations
- Text message frequency
- Call transcription (only available if CallScribe is active)
- Web sessions (only available for keyword-level tracking numbers)
- Visitor's source, including landing page URLs and referring URLs (only available for keyword-level tracking numbers)
- Tags and notes for each call
- Your CallScore
The timeline tab is a quick way to view the same information that will be available on the call details page for your most recent callers. This information is dependent upon whether the call was received by a source tracking number or a keyword pool.
You can also mark calls as spam and edit the caller's tag, note, lead status, and value from the timeline page.
