Email SupportCall Us Go to Close


A Call is made:

  • via calling a lead directly or receiving an incoming call from one (regular call)
  • via the dialer using the power behavior (power dialer call)
  • via the dialer using the predictive behavior (predictive dialer call)

This is exposed in the call_method field that can have the values regular, power or predictive respectively.

Every call also has a disposition associated with it. The values can be:

  • answered if the call was answered.
  • no-answer if the call was not answered.
  • vm-answer if a call was sent to voicemail, but the caller hung up without leaving a message (currently only applicable to incoming calls).
  • vm-left if a voicemail was left on an incoming call or dropped on an outgoing call.
  • busy if the call was not connected because the destination was busy.
  • blocked if Close did not allow the call to take place, e.g. due to the number being invalid.
  • error if an unexpected error occurred in Close or on our carrier's side.
  • abandoned if the call was abandoned. This can only happen with the predictive dialer if no sales rep is available for a connected call.

The cost of the call is in US cents and is a decimal number.
