The CallTaker application is an optional module for PeopleHours that can receive telephone calls from employees.

It records their ON, OFF or Check Calls in WorkMonitor and updates scheduled duties to provide a record of both Time and Attendance as well as regular scheduled welfare check calls.


CallTaker uses VoIP services to provide a local telephone number that employees call.

The CallTaker will answer after a single ring and play a recorded message requesting the employee to enter their SIN and PIN numbers using their telephones keypad.


After the employee enters the SIN/PIN a recorded message will be played stating "[call type] accepted" or "[call type] rejected"

(Note: The SIN/PIN combination can be reversed if required to operate as PIN/SIN)


The CallTaker-IO monitor screen provides a real time display of all CallTaker activity.

It's primary purpose is to provide data to aid in troubleshooting and fault analysis.

It can be used to search for a specific employee record or telephone number to establish if any calls have been attempted that may have been rejected.


The CallTaker-IO display is also used to track internet related activity across the VoIP services such as DDoS attacks or intrusion attempts.

In this role the display can potentially display many hundreds of lines where remote services are probing the CT services for vulnerabilities.

If users see any activity such as this they should contact Gallinet Support for assistance.      


The columns displayed in the CT Monitor are detailed below:-







The time the call event was received


The line attached to CallTaker that the call was received on


The number of concurrent calls being received at the time


A green tick indicates where the CT service has made a CT-Out Automated Call to the employee or post telephone number.

Device Time

One of the security checks TelMe performs is to compare the time your device is set against the actual time recorded on our servers.

This check is performed to ensure that only accurate time and attendance data is recorded.


If the device time differs from the PeopleHours server time the employees call may be rejected and the variance will appear on CallTaker Monitor.


Employees device time should be set to automatically synchronise with an internet time server or their networks time synchronisation service to avoid any issues.
