Overview


The new call alert allows you to send missed and/or received call alerts to any email recipient(s), regardless of them having access to the Mediahawk platform.

Selecting Missed calls will generate an email being sent to the recipient(s)’s email address, whenever a call received on Mediahawk’s numbers is either unanswered or engaged. 

Selecting Received calls will generate an email being sent to the recipient(s)’s email address, whenever a call received on Mediahawk’s numbers is answered, by a person or an automated system (auto-attendant, IVRs etc)

Please note that if a call is made to your destination numbers directly, Mediahawk cannot send you a missed/received call alert.

If you wish to receive alerts for all static and all dynamic numbers, we advise that you create 2 separate settings, one selecting All Static and another selecting All Dynamic. This will ensure that any future additional of numbers and/or pools to your account, would automatically be included in your alerts.


Basic Missed/Received Call Alerts All Static

Click My Account > Call Alerts

Click Create Call Alerts on the right-hand side

Specify a name for the alert

Enter the email address(es) for the recipients. Multiple emails need separating via a comma.

At Missed and/or Received Calls, tick Yes to open the selection options

At Numbers Selection, tick All Static

Then click the green button Create

Your missed/received call alert is now set up.


Basic Missed/Received Call Alerts All Dynamic

Click My Account > Call Alerts

Click Create Call Alerts on the right-hand side

Specify a name for the alert

Enter the email address(es) for the recipients. Multiple emails need separating via a comma.

At Missed and/or Received, tick Yes to open the selection options

At Numbers Selection, tick All Dynamic

Then click the green button Create

Your missed/received call alert is now set up.


Missed calls: Advanced custom selection

Numbers selection: this allow you to select the Mediahawk service numbers you wish to receive alerts for.

  • Custom Selection: tick this and the number selection window will open

Select the appropriate tab to pick either some of your Static Numbers, some of your Dynamic URL (dynamic campaign per domain) or some of your Dynamic Pools (certain sets of dynamic numbers.)

By default, this window will show you the first 10 entries of any selected tab. Use the drop-down to view up to 100 entries.

There is also a Search option for each tab on the left hand-side, allowing to locate a number by entering the number itself, part of the number or its description.



When you have made your selection, click Save.

Because all destinations are enabled by default, if you have made a custom selection at Numbers Selection, you will need to tick No destination at Destination Numbers Selection, otherwise you will receive alerts for all destination numbers.


Destination Numbers Selection: this section allows you to pick a destination number (where Mediahawk connect the calls).

If you choose Custom Selection on destination numbers, it works as above so you will have to also click Custom Selection at Numbers Selection and deselect all service numbers. When you have made your selection, click Save.


Minimum Ring Length: You can define if you would like to only receive the missed call alerts after a certain amount of ringing time. Enter an amount in seconds: calls missed when the ring length is under the amount entered will not generate an alert email.


Include IVR Destinations: If you have an IVR in place managed by Mediahawk, you can select to include IVR destinations so you will receive the alerts if the destination option selected by the caller has not picked up the call. If Mediahawk manages your IVR and this is not ticked, you won’t receive call alerts as calls will be marked as answered.


Received Calls: Advanced custom selection

For Received Calls: Alert will be sent if service number, destination number and category (if set) match.

As per Missed call, Numbers selection and Destination Numbers Selection work in the same way; you can select All Static, All Dynamic or make a custom selection.


Categories Selection: If you are only interested in receiving call alerts for calls received to your chosen category, please click Custom Section and the selection box will open where you can pick your category(ies) you wish. Once done, click Save.

If you are not making a custom selection under Destination Numbers Selection or Categories Selection, keep All Destination and No Categories ticked.


Minimum Call Length: You can specify in seconds the minimum length of a call for received alerts to be sent so that you can filter out short ones.

To save your chosen alert, click Create.

You will come back to the Main call alerts page and a table will give details of your alerts as per below screenshot. Type will let you know if alert is set up for Missed, Received or both.
