How to be Responsive to Events on Your Telephone System | Yeastar

event center- event notice

Sometimes, when our business system has an issue, like a user is unable to login or locks their account, the system overloads, or even needs an update, we couldn’t get the first look at it. That’s pretty annoying. We want to know what’s going on behind our telephone system. For administrators, we should stay in the loop no matter where we are. Think that, when critical system issue or any important event happens, if we can get instant notifications through email, SMS, or even a phone call, then things get easy!

Yeastar S-Series VoIP PBX and Yeastar Cloud PBX can monitor system events and logs, then send notifications to the specified contacts. That practical management feature that really stands out is the Event Center in the Web configuration panel.

With the Event Log and Notification system, administrators can be instantly alerted through email, SMS, or a phone call when a specific event happens. It speaks to the needs of both end users and partners, as it makes the PBX responsive on any number of event triggers, ranging from simple events such as “VoIP Trunk Registration Failed”, “Outgoing Call Failed”, or more in-depth alerts such as “CPU Overload”, “Memory Overload,” or even “Network Failure”.

Depending on your priority level, you can tailor the system to send emails for simple issues or more advanced issues. For example, a simple email can be sent when a user is unable to log in or locks their account.

The entire process, deciding on which events to send alerts, how the alerts are sent, and who to receive alerts, can all be managed through the web configuration panel of Yeastar PBX via point-and-click configuration. Here are the details:
