Each user can select a preferred language in Collaboration Settings -> Personal. This language is applied for Collaboration web interface, WP4X0 interface. All the System sounds (audio prompts) are also played in the language selected by the user, but only if the corresponding Sound package is installed. Otherwise, System sounds are played in the default Language of the PBX.
Call and chat history
On Cloud PBX you can simply disable / enable the PBX to save chat and call history (CDR):
For each backend there is a log shown in the right part of the screen, with the actual status and eventual problems and errors:
General PBX parameters and parameters for the voice transport:
Note: Starting from WMS 5.04.20220309.1, Wideband codec is forced for all devices (g711 always has higher priority compared to g729).
If you want to enforce g729, this can be done via Dialplan configuration (Set application -> Codecs -> choose the preferred option).
With wideband codecs, the following priorities apply:
Enable integration with Oracle / Fidelio PMS and other hotel management systems that support FIAS protocol.

Manage such PBX Features as:
Cloud Analytics (available from WMS 6.03.20230630.3): enables events sending/ data gathering for Cloud Analytics (CDR-View 2.0) in Collaboration and x-bees. It is automatically activated if a PBX or whole WMS Network are running in the Cloud.
In case of a standalone Virtual/ Hardware PBX, or if there is a mix of Cloud and Virtual/ Hardware PBXs in a WMS Network, Cloud Analytics should be enabled manually by admin.
Documentation: Cloud Analytics (CDR-View 2.0) in Collaboration
Note: If sending of the events was enabled and then disabled, the old data is still stored in the data base. For the old data be removed, a ticket to customer care has to be opened.
Important: If you need to disable Cloud Analytics on a PBX with x-bees licenses, please contact Wildix Technical Support, as the Cloud Analytics setting may affect presence sync in x-bees.
On a PBX with Collaboration licenses Cloud Analytics can be turned off without additional configuration from the Technical Support side.
Collaboration call control (available from WMS 6.03.20230630.3): enables Call control mode for Collaboration. By default, only 1 active Collaboration session is permitted. However, there is an option to allow the second Collaboration tab – in Call Control mode. This can be used, for example, for media devices when connecting via remote desktop. The option is particularly practical for teams4Wildix integration. Once the feature is activated, an additional option appears on the Collaboration login window – Call Control only.
Use case: User can set "Call control only" mode to be automatically enabled by adding a parameter in the URI (useful when it is needed to share the link among all employees or bookmark the page)
How-to: add ?sip=no to PBX domain name ->
- (available from WMS 6.04.20231020.2): enables location-based MFA on the PBX, which uses users' location (determined by the IP address) to confirm their identity. If the IP address appears to be from an unfamiliar location, users need to confirm the IP address via email. Read more in the documentation: Security Policy at Wildix
