Call and Text Notifications

Create email or desktop notifications for incoming calls and text messages to your tracking numbers. You can customize your notifications to receive alerts about specific interactions with calls, like missed calls, voicemails, first-time callers, or calls matching a specific tag. You can also choose the alert type, including email notifications, live desktop notifications, or mobile notifications.

User Permissions for Notifications

You can create or update notifications for your personal login at any time. If you need to manage another user's notifications, you'll need to be an administrator or a manager. Here are the user permissions for notification emails:

  1. Administrators can create or edit notification emails for themselves and any other user on their account.
  2. Managers can create or edit notification emails for themselves and any users in companies they're assigned to.
  3. Reporting users can only create or edit their own notification emails.

For more details about the different user types in CallRail, see this help article: Managing Users

Create a Call or Text Notification

Use these instructions if you’d like to create a notification for yourself or another user on your account. 

  1. Click the Account icon in the top left to open the My Account panel, then click Notifications.

  2. Select Calls & Texts from the Notifications section in the left menu.

  3. Click Create Notification.

  4. Choose the company we should include in your notification, the user who should receive this notification, and whether you'd like to be notified of inbound calls and/or text messages. If you've chosen a specific company, you'll also have the option to choose a specific tracking number.

    If you're a manager or an administrator, you can create email-only users for specific companies in your account. After selecting a company for your notification, choose the New Email Recipient option in the "Which user should receive this notification?" drop-down and enter an email address.

    Only administrators and managers on your account will be able to choose a different user than themselves on this step. Reporting users can only create notifications for their own login. Click Customize when you're ready to move to the next step.
