Configuring call center report profiles and generating reports

The Call Center > Report > Report tab displays a list of report profiles.

A report profile is a group of Setting that contains the report name, its subject matter, its schedule, and other aspects that the FortiVoice unit considers when generating reports from log data. The FortiVoice unit presents the information in tabular and graphical format.
