Use Case: Monitoring Sales Team Performance
Scenario: Jamal, the Manager at OrganiKo, recently transitioned his sales team to the Omnivoice platform. OrganiKo, a family-owned Southern kombucha brewing company, needed a reliable method to improve team performance and meet sales targets.
How the Omnivoice Dashboard Helps:
On a typical Monday morning, Jamal logs into the Omnivoice Dashboard and sets the filter to review the previous week’s metrics. He observes:
- Three team members surpassed their call targets, indicating increased interactions with potential clients.
- New recruits showed longer call durations, likely spending more time understanding client needs.
- The most experienced operator had an unexpectedly low call count.
Jamal uses Omnivoice’s XSL analytics download feature to analyze this data and presents it at the weekly sales meeting. The team brainstorms on helping new recruits in handling queries faster and better. Later on, during 1-1’s, Jamal asks the operator with the lowest call count what happened and finds he’s been affected by an issue in his personal life and needs time off.
With the Omnivoice Dashboard, Jamal could do a better job as the team manager and quickly pinpointed areas needing focus, helping each member of OrganiKo’s sales team perform better.
Problems Omnivoice Dashboard Might Solve:
- Lack of Transparency: Managers often struggle with unclear views of employee performance, making it hard to gauge team productivity. The dashboard provides a clear view of performance metrics, highlighting strengths and areas for improvement.
- Time-Consuming Data Compilation: Compiling performance reports manually is often slow and prone to errors. The Dashboard simplifies this process with its one-click report downloads, making it more straightforward and reliable.
- Delayed Intervention: Quick action is crucial when addressing problems or inefficiencies. The Dashboard’s up-to-date metrics allow managers to identify and tackle issues promptly, helping to prevent escalation.
- Inadequate Resource Allocation: Understanding employee performance through the Dashboard aids managers in determining who may need more training or resources. This ensures an equitable distribution of resources for optimal team success.
By providing real-time performance metrics, the Dashboard removes uncertainty in team management, enabling data-informed decisions. Whether it’s assessing individual employee contributions, allocating resources, or ensuring timely problem-solving, the Dashboard is a vital tool. It’s more than just call management; it’s about improving overall business operations for continued success.
What Are Roles and Permissions in Omnivoice?
Roles and Permissions are critical features that allow businesses to manage user access to various Omnivoice system functions. These include business numbers, messages, voicemails, and the overall account settings. Different roles allow for varying levels of system access, while specific permissions within each role offer even greater control, allowing different employees to have different levels of access within the same role.
What Roles Are Available?
Omnivoice provides a three-tiered access hierarchy for managing users.
This role has the highest level of permissions within the Omnivoice profile and account. They have the authority to change all Omnivoice settings, including business numbers, messages, voicemails, call flows, contacts, integrations, and more. Admins are also responsible for managing users, and they can change roles for themselves and other Administrators, Managers, and Agents. They can also modify and delete the account.
The Manager role is more flexible and can vary in terms of access permissions. Depending on the permissions set, a Manager can have access that is slightly more than an Agent or almost as comprehensive as an Administrator (barring some advanced account management features). Usually, Managers can access calls, messages, voicemails, and contacts, manage call flows, set up and delete integrations, and handle agent management.
Agents have the most basic level of access to the Omnivoice profile. Typically, an Agent can access their own calls, messages, voicemails, and contacts. Administrators can adjust phone permissions to allow Agents access to calls within their Call Group or Call Flow. If your company has multiple phone numbers, you can specify which business numbers Agents have access to.

How Do Roles and Permissions Work?
This setting allows team members to see only specific sections of the Omnivoice profile. The sections they don’t have user access to won’t be visible. This allows for focused work without unnecessary distractions. The sections available to all users involve making/receiving business calls, and accessing voicemails and messages in which they participated.
If a user has wider access, their profile visibility may include areas like managing call flows, viewing and managing other users’ communication, user management, and controlling the account.
How to Set Up Roles and Permissions in Omnivoice
- Go to the “Team” section of the Omnivoice account.
- Click on the “Members” or “Groups” tab based on whether you need to find a group or individual user.
- You’ll see a list of users. Click on the name of the user you want to assign new roles or permissions to, or modify existing ones. A popup will appear.
- In the user’s card, under the basic information, you will find a new section “Roles and Access”. Here, you can assign roles to users and set specific permissions.
- Click “Save” to save the changes.
Supervise Feature: Viewing Through Another User’s Perspective
- Step into Users’ Shoes: The “Supervise” button lets admins experience Omnivoice from another user’s perspective.
- Direct Insights: Admins can quickly identify which features or information an agent has access to.
- Swift Corrective Actions: If an agent has undue access, admins can restrict it immediately. For instance, they might limit the agent’s access to a secondary business number.
- Enhanced Security: This feature reinforces security measures by ensuring correct access permissions.
Benefits of Using Roles and Permissions in Omnivoice
Adopting a robust roles and permissions system like that offered by Omnivoice comes with a plethora of benefits. This system fosters enhanced efficiency, security, and productivity within the organization. Here are some of the key benefits:

4. Easy Scalability: As your business grows and your team expands, the roles and permissions system allows you to easily manage and control new users’ access to the Omnivoice system, ensuring a smooth integration of new members into your existing workflow.

What Are User Extensions in Omnivoice?
User extensions in Omnivoice are a dedicated set of digits that are assigned to individual users within a phone system. They function as individual identifiers, allowing internal and external callers to directly reach the intended recipient without going through an operator or an automated menu. Extensions can typically be three to six digits long, depending on the size and needs of the organization.
How Do User Extensions Work?
In Omnivoice, once a user has been assigned an extension, they can receive direct calls through it. Callers simply need to dial the main business number, followed by the specific extension of the person they want to reach. The system then routes the call directly to that user, whether they’re on their desk phone, a softphone on their computer, or the Omnivoice mobile app on their smartphone.
Setting Up User Extensions in Omnivoice
Setting up user extensions in Omnivoice is straightforward:
- Log in to your Omnivoice admin account.
- Navigate to the ‘Team’ section.
- Select a user and click on ‘Edit’.
- In the user settings, you will see a field for ‘Extension’. Enter the desired digits here.
- Click ‘Save’ to apply the changes.
Please note that only admins have the ability to assign and change user extensions.
Benefits and Use Cases of User Extensions
User extensions in Omnivoice bring several benefits:
- Smooth Communication: By providing a direct line to each user, user extensions eliminate the need for operators or automated directories for internal calls, making communication quicker and more efficient.
- Improved Customer Service: External callers can also use extensions to reach the person they need without unnecessary steps or transfers, improving their experience and reducing their time on hold.
- Flexibility: Since Omnivoice is a VoIP system, user extensions work wherever the user is, not just at a specific desk or office. This is particularly valuable for remote or mobile workers.
- Professionalism: Having user extensions gives your business a professional image, showing that you have a sophisticated phone system and a structured organization.
As for use cases, user extensions are particularly useful in organizations where teams or departments may need to frequently communicate with each other. They’re also valuable for businesses where employees may not always be in the office but still need to be reachable, such as sales or consulting firms. User extensions also make it easy for regular customers or clients to reach their usual contacts directly.
What are Call Logs?
Call logs are comprehensive records of phone calls made or received by a specific number. They usually include details like caller identity, call duration, time of the call, and the direction of the call (incoming or outgoing). Omnivoice’s call logs allow administrators to track and manage business calls effectively, providing insights into call patterns, durations, and other valuable metrics.
Navigating the Call Log Feature in Omnivoice
In Omnivoice, each call log entry presents a consistent, detailed layout. It starts with an icon representing the call status (green for connected, gray-black for failed, and orange-red for missed). The direction of the call is indicated by an arrow pointing toward or away from the icon.
The call log entry also includes the caller’s name and number, the dialed number, the call recipient, and the duration of the call. If a voicemail was left, there’s a voicemail play button at the end of the entry.
How to Access Call Logs in Omnivoice
To access call logs in Omnivoice, start by logging into the web panel. You’ll land on the Journal page, where all call log details are available. You can either scroll through the entire history or use filters at the top to view a selected subset of calls.
