This article walks you through the basic steps for setting up Real-Time Events.

Real-Time Events provide an ongoing check and delivery of call status information including when the call is first received and when it is complete. You can collect and send this data in several ways including email or an email attachment, FTP, SFTP, HTTPS Post, URL encoded, or custom integration.

When should you use Real-Time Events? They can be used to notify you of a missed call, to provide a “screen pop” to a call center management system, or to push call data into a CRM such as Salesforce, ZenDesk, and more.
