Hey Everyone,

We understand that you all have some feedback to share about the new Call Log functionality and design. In order to consolidate and help our Product Team go through your thoughts more easily, I've created this thread.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Call log view - old vs. new.

Hi,

Is there any way that call log can be changed back to what it was before -- with a custom range?

New log view isn't really as nearly helpful as the old one.

Case in point: if I select Types of Call boxes unchecked, then data shows up but if I check all types of call, nothing shows up. That makes no sense.

Thanks,
Derrick

Is there a way to revert back to the old call log?  I cannot copy incoming from numbers for new callers that we take jobs from and we cannot see the full extension name, just the extension number and a few digits of the name.  Old interface allowed us to do both.  If it cant be done, can we at least extend the field size of the "EXT" field?

I just noticed today (11/19) that we got a new update. 

A few problems with this:

Can no longer see the full ext name when you're in the detailed button.

Also the scrolling from page to page only goes on the bottom now and not on top.

There are a few more things but these are the first 2 things that stand out the most.

The call log view on the online portal is updated. It is not useful. We want the previous version back

Merged topic seems to have lost some of the comment replies that had additional info in them.  I recall a few screenshots and other items that people (including me) were missing.

Actually the one I was following earlier (not merged with this one yet) is called "REALLY HATE THIS NEW CALL LOG INTERFACE" and I had added the following issues:
  • No navigation for first page and last page
  • No ability to resize columns
  • No ability to sort on a particular column
  • Simple view shows who the call was from or to, but not both

Hey Bob, actually, if you click on this for the merged discussions it will show the original comments :)

Saadet, do the developers and product support click through to the original topics to see that additional detail?  Also, the topic I mentioned wasn't merged.

Also will add that the date range option needs some help.  You cannot type in a date range, and it's not obvious that to do a custom date range you need to click on the starting date and then shift-click on the ending date.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled REALLY HATE THIS NEW CALL LOG INTERFACE.

I know I asked before about reverting the call log to the old one and was told its not possible by customer service but it really is inferior to the old one.  The new interface is just horrible!  The old interface gave more visual data and were able to copy and past all fields.  I cannot view complete extension data and transfers of that call without hovering the over the field with the mouse.  Cant copy and paste phone numbers.  I pay over $600 a month on our bill not happy.  Hoping some one makes some changes or reverts back to previous edition.

I am going to switch.... I am giving RC a chance to revert back to the OLD call log which NOBODY had a problem with. Now it totally disrupted my business. I spend over $1,000/mo on billing and it's been a nightmare... Can't scroll thru the pages easily, can't see the full extension, have to scroll now instead of having it ALL on ONE PAGE, on and and on and on... I hate dealing with the imbeciles over at customer support who sound like they're high all the time and too mellowed out, I've had enough of RC!  The company will go down the toilet if incompetence in the customer service reps  prevails. 

UI designs are meant to fix bugs, improve overall user experience and improve on something.  The old system was NOT broken. Not sure which incompetent person over at RC thought it was a good idea to take what's working, and change it for the hell of it!


BRING BACK THE OLD SYSTEM!

I think Microsoft is screwed up in quite a few ways, but they do seem to have it figured out with several of their user experiences.  Outlook web, the Office 365 admin portal, and even Office 2016 desktop apps now have a means to try the new experience or stick with the old experience, plus give a means in the same spot for feedback.

With any significant UI changes, it would be great if we could have similar options in the RingCentral portal and/or apps.

Our company is currently implementing RingCentral.  We would like to be able to search the Call Log using Name (incoming & outgoing).  We can do that using the RingCentral and RingCental Phone desktop applications, but not the web portal.
how to keep the old call log skin?

Looks like all of the other users have explained the many reasons why the new call log is no good.  I just want to put my name out there as another person who would really like for you to change it back to the old format.  It's disrupting the way we operate and it's taking us twice as long to look up call times in order to charge customers.  Honestly, I don't want this new one improved. I just want it to go back to the old format, which was not broken in the first place.  Please, I'm begging you.  It's only made things harder for us.

I guess I'm at a loss as to what cannot be achieved in the new call log.  I can go into Detailed view, export all the content to a spreadsheet and slice it any way possible.  I'm actually looking at the Analytics Reports now as another means for looking at the data and saving particular searches.  The only thing it appears to be missing is fax detail and the ability to filter by department or billing code.  Maybe I'm not a power user of call log, but it seems to offer all the toggles that the old one did and gives the ability to hide and reorder columns.
