Depending on what kind of information you need:

1) if you want a simple usage summary by user, you could simply switch to Billings & Accounting -> Billings by Users view. It gives you a list of fax transmissions by users.

2) if you want a full-fledged billings system i.e. calculate the charge per fax transmission, then you need to perform a number of setup steps as mentioned below:

1. At Billings & Accounting -> Billings Code, Setup Billings Codes e.g. Accounts Dept, MIS Dept. User can either type in or pick up from this pre-defined keyword lists (from the Fax Options dialog box).

2. At Server Administration -> Carrier Table, Create a Carrier Document and define the access code e.g. 011 for AT&T.

3. At Billings & Accounting -> Access Hours, Create an Access Hours table which list the pricing structure for your carrier e.g.

Monday - FridaySaturdaySunday
8:00am - 5:00 pm StandardEconomyDiscount
5:01pm - 11:00am EconomyDiscountDiscount

4. At Billings & Accounting -> Access Charges, Create an Access Charges table for each destination country levied by your carrier e.g. to make a call to UK via AT&T service,

First 1 minute:$2$1.5$1
Unit of Increment after 1st min: 6 secs6 secs 6 secs
