Viewing Details in Call Metrics

When you have free incoming minutes, the incoming call charges will be deducted from the free minutes. However, you may have to pay the other call charges (recording or voicemail charges). The Cost Payable metric in the Call Metrics section gives the final call charges payable after deducting the free local incoming call minutes.


For example, suppose have call recording enabled, and the call duration is 2 minutes. In that case, the cost payable shows the amount payable, after deducting the charges incurred for 2 minutes, which means you only have to pay for call recording.
