Call Detail Records in Microsoft Teams for better communication management

Call Detail Records in Microsoft Teams

Microsoft Teams’ Call Detail Records (CDR) offer indispensable insights into an organization’s communication trends and patterns. As the utilization of Microsoft Teams continues to surge, particularly in the context of remote work, leveraging these CDRs becomes essential for enhancing communication oversight and management.


4 valuable advantages of CDR in Microsoft Teams

      1. Optimize communication: Call Detail Records grant a comprehensive overview of Teams Voice calls empowering you to identify areas for enhancement and optimize communication strategies. Teams or departments with high activity levels can be discerned from CDRs, enabling resource allocation with precision.
      2. Ensure compliance: Utilize CDRs to actively uphold communication policies. Should your organization forbid the use of personal devices for work communication, CDRs will step in to enforce this regulation. Furthermore, CDRs play a pivotal role in identifying and addressing call quality concerns, especially pertinent for remote teams grappling with audio issues and dropped calls.
      3. Leverage analytics: CDRs offer the functionality to export data for analysis, facilitating the creation of reports and dashboards that reveal communication trends and patterns. By studying these insights, you can ascertain the most frequently employed communication channels—be it chats, calls, or meetings—and efficiently allocate resources. Additionally, identifying and supporting the most active users through extra training becomes seamless using CDRs.
      4. Integrate for insights: Seamlessly integrate CDRs with other systems, such as PowerPack – Call analytics, to construct a holistic communication pattern panorama. Harness CDRs to track customer interactions comprehensively, thereby pinpointing opportunities for refinement and growth.
