There's not a simple print function available, but, depending on the format you want, you might consider the DropBox feature, then export, or print from DropBox.

Does the report feature identify the phone numbers when a text message is sent or received or just limited to calls?

Vicki,

Are you referring to the log report, as in your subsequent post? If so, the log report does not identify the phone numbers for text messages (sent or received). It is limited to voice and fax calls.

Thank you. Additionally if I have text messages sent to email and Ring Central does an update of some type could that update decontrol or turn off that option/control?

Hi Vicki,  I'm not clear on what you are asking exactly.  Did you figure out a method of having the texts sent to your email?  What sort of updates are you referring to and what sort of controls or options would you want turned on/off?

Vicki,

The log report only identifies voice and fax calls...not text messages.

I would like to be able to view a report as well, I send 15000 messages a month to over 100 Doctors, I charge them per message sent. At midnight every night I have to click on each Doctor and hit delete all to see how many messages we sent them all day. I have been doing this for months. Just this last week I discovered that not all of my messages I sent always show up. I was missing messages and I was able to find them on my mobile app. Therefor I have just discovered that I have possibly lost thousands of billable dollars that I surely can not ask for now. I opened a support ticket last Sunday with two contradicting screen shots showing that messages were missing. Than this morning for the system to completely be down was ridiculous.

Hi OnCallAnswer, 

I'm not sure how much demand there is for this, but I'm switching this discussion from a Question to an Idea topic so other users can vote on this.

We would love to be able to provide analytics to the partners on the users inbound/outbound sms texts (counts) at the very minimum.  I am not sure if people will find this idea topic but it is definitely a necessity with so much business being conducted via messaging now a days.

I have been asking for this as well, we are an answering service for 130 doctors and sometimes there is a discrepancy in the calls that we page out and I never have the proof.

I would love to get a report on the numbers of SMS text both inbound and outbound.  Both a high level report and details on the interactions.   This has become a more valuable communication method for most companies over both phone and email.   Lack of functionality here could mean we would have switch to another provider.

I have lost a lot of billable calls that were disputed when I have no proof that we sent X amount of pages to the Doctors on call

Would like to see the Reporting Tool account for Texting Logs so that we are able to track texting in the Reports just like calls.  Thank you

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Access SMS text log on Mobile App through Website/Desktop.

US account for an Insurance Agent and his staff.
Need to document all communications with clients on our company tracking software.  The SMS texts sent through the Mobile app should be tracked so transferring them to a send able file, accessing them, through the website, some way of saving these vital customer conversations is necessary.  As a team we need to be able to see what is happening in any client communications to be able to address their needs, especially if someone is out sick.  Right now they are captive on my phone.  Heaven forbid it gets stolen, lost, wiped!  What back up would we have?
Please help in providing some answer/solution.  Thank you

Anyone know if they have added this feature yet? ..To run a SMS Message Log on users, similar to their call log. We have recruiters who send out hundreds of texts messages daily via the google chrome add-on and no way to track if they really preformed this or not. As well as texts automatically deleting themselves a week or so later with no way to retrieve the conversation.

Hello Becky,

Feature Request prioritization is a bit complicated....unfortunately. The more votes the better but there's no "set" number. We send regular reports to our Product Team of the Feature Requests on the Community - it's up to them to implement them.

Hi there,
I would really like to see a report on inbound/outbound text messages. I'm trying to gauge traffic volume, whether clients or employees are texting, determine nature of calls, whether more training needs to be done for employees, resetting of expectations of clients needs to be done, and then have objective data to determine how involved my after hours employees need to be so I can fairly compensate them. At this point, it's somewhat of a shot in the dark.  Thanks for your help and hope to hear from RC soon!

At the very least there should be a report that would show a number of incoming & outgoing text messages for a specific time period. I would like to show our management team how important the SMS tool is for our business. But, I can't do this without having numbers to back it up.
