6.2. Defining Data Filter Parameters

 

The Data Filter Parameters describe specific criteria that PollCat III uses to determine whether call records will be stored or omitted. Note that Command ^B42 has a cumulative effect. Each time ^B42 is invoked, its argument (parameters) are added to the existing Data Filter Parameters.

The argument of Command ^B42 will usually include the following components:

•                      A variable (any letter from A through L) from the Data Filter Format, which designates the field(s) to be monitored.

•                      A logical or relational operator (see Section 6.4).

•                      A description of the call characteristics used as the criteria for storage or rejection.

 

To define the Data Filter Parameters, proceed as follows.

1. Enter the Command Mode and invoke Command ^B42 using the following format:

^B42,parameters [Enter]

Where parameters is a description of the characteristics of the type of call you want to store.

Example: If the Data Filter Format assigns the variable "C" to represent the field for the call time, and you want to store only records for calls placed before 6:30 pm (18:30), then Data Filter Parameters would be defined as follows:

^B42,C<18:30 [Enter]

1                     To display the Data Filter Parameters, type ^B43 [Enter].

2                     To define complex Data Filter Parameters that use multiple variables or AND/OR conditions, please refer to the examples in Section 6.6.

3                     To clear all Data Filter Parameters, type ^B42 [Enter].

 

Caution:

Data Filter Parameters that have been cleared

cannot be recovered. The Data Filter Parameters

must be redefined manually, unless the

configuration has been saved as described in

Section 8.
