Short Description

Mint's Calls module is designed to facilitate management of calls within your organisation. This module provides tools for scheduling, coordinating, and documenting calls (both inbound and outbound), establishing relevant connections with associated records and participants. Each record carries all information necessary to facilitate a call and is visible to all participants.

Mint's Calls module is one of the basic modules within the system. It serves as a comprehensive solution for organizing and managing calls within the system. It allows users to schedule, track, and participate in calls, improoving communication and coordination across teams. It is connected with Calendar Module so users can take an overall look on their schedules and review every call they have planned considering every detail about it. Each record of the calls module represents a single call that has been held, has been planned to be held in the past or is planned and yet to come in the future. As with the other modules, records of the calls module can be browsed in a standard perspectives (for instance List, detailed or other views). Adding new or editing existing records can be done by opening edit view and filling the form consisted of fields related to this call. All records can be reviewed on a list view, My Calls dashlet, or, as mentioned before, users' calendars.


Calls module comprises several fields, each serving a specific purpose in capturing and organizing calls-related information. Here is a detailed explanation of each field:

Subject Name field equivalent. Serves as a link to the record's detailed view from anywhere in the portal, including list view.
Direction This dropdown field captures the direction of the call. It offers a selection of predefined options: "Inbound" or "Outbound" (On the Edit/Create view it is located next to the 'Status' field and has no separate label)
Status This dropdown field captures the current status of the call. It offers a selection of predefined options: "Planned", "Held" or "Not Held"
Start Date & Time Scheduled date and time when the call begins
Related to Within the system, it is possible to establish connections between call record and records in other modules. The relationship in this particular case offers flexibility, allowing users to select the specific module from which the associated record should originate. See "Relations" section below for more details.
Duration Time span allocated for the call in hours and minutes.
Reminders secondary forms that can be added by clicking "Add reminder" button. Setting up reminders has been described in "Reminders" section below.
Description Allows users to provide additional context or details related to this particular call they are scheduling. It can include some information about the specific topic that is to be discussed as a part of this call or any other information that seems relevant.
Assigned to Assigns responsibility to a specific user or team within the organization for overseeing the call. It ensures clear ownership and accountability for each call record.

Note: Fields marked with an asterisk on the form are required. Saving the record without providing input to them beforehand won't be possible.


"Related to" field

The Calls module facilitates connections with several other system modules, enhancing the management of both calls and associated elements. For instance, users have the capability to associate a call with a particular task, establishing a clear relationship between the scheduled call and the task. Additionally, this call will be prominently displayed in a designated subpanel beneath the respective Task, alongside other calls linked to the same task. This integration optimizes visibility and accessibility for effective coordination. Below is a list of modules which records can be linked to a call record with "Related to" field.

In the context of the Calls module, these modules have the ability to establish a relationship with the call records. This means that the records from the Tasks, Projects, Project Tasks, Recruitments, Candidates, Candidatures, Offboardings and Onboardings modules can be associated with a specific call record within the Calls module.


Apart from the "Related to" field, there are other relations that Call records can establish. Below the detailed view of each record, there are subpanels that contain all connected records from other modules that are connected to selected call in form of a list. The difference between these relations and the one from "Related to" field is that you can select only one record from only one module in a related to module, and within the subpanels multiple records can be selected. Moreover, subpanels collect records that basically represent rather assets or materials that are necessary to properly facilitate considered call, not like with the "Related to" field, which usually indicates the subject to be discussed. Below is a list of subpanels visible below call record's detailed view with a short comment regarding it's purpose.

Users Lists users who have been invited to this call.
Candidates Lists candidates who have been invited to this call.
Resources Lists resources (like equipment or locations) booked for this call. Resources can only be booked on one call at a time.
Notes Notes made during the call, or any other notes that seem relevant.
Reservations Reservations of the resources that are related to this call.

Special Features


The Reminders feature provides users with the ability to set up notifications for calls, helping ensure participants stay informed and on schedule. To set up a reminder just click on "+ Add reminder" button while on Edit View of the call record. This action prompts additional fields to appear on the record's form, providing the means to specify reminder details. With this feature, users have the possibility to schedule system notifications, email message reminders or both, all of which can be dispatched to selected invitees at a chosen interval before the scheduled call. After clicking "+ Add reminder" button it remains on the form, right below additional fields it previously introduced. Users can click it multiple times to add multiple reminders regarding a single call record.


The Repetitions feature simplifies the scheduling of recurring calls, reducing the manual effort needed to create multiple records for regular events. On record's Create/Edit View there is a "periodicity" section with a "Repeat" field. By default it is set to "None", but can be modified to following values:

  • Daily,
  • Weekly,
  • Monthly,
  • Yearly.

Upon selecting one of these options, the "Periodicity" section expands, granting users the ability to specify additional parameters for the recurring calls. These parameters include setting the additional interval between calls and determining the number of call records to be generated, or specifying a date that acts as a boundary for the recurring schedule. In certain scenarios, there are additional fields available to designate the specific days of the week on which the calls should occur.

Scheduling a call from the calendar

Apart from the conventional methods, users can schedule calls directly from their calendars in MintHCM. To do so, just click on an empty space within your calendar and drag your mouse acros the calendar's grid so the created representation would match the time frames of the call you'd like to create. After doing so you'll be directed to Work Schedule create view, but a popup window would also appear with a dedicated buttons to create a call or meeting instead. You'll be redirected to a call create view after choosing 'Create call' option on a popup window. For more information about utilising your calendar check out articles about Calendar module and My Calendar dashlet.


Why, after setting the repetition to one of available options (for example "Daily"), there is an additional "Repeat Interval" field visible on the form? Isn't an interval determined to 1 day already after selecting "Daily" from the list?
It is by default 1 day, but it can be modified to some other value. It seems to be doubled, but come in handy when users want to create a recurring call records for example every other day or every third day etc.
Can I invite external participants who are not users of our system to a call?
Yes, you can invite private groups, teams and candidates. Additionally there is an option to add resources the same way participants are being invited. Keep in mind that invitees that are not the users of MintHCM system can't really get a system notification, and therfore can't get such reminder even if it has been set in the call record.
What would happen if I set up an email reminder to be sent to invitees that doesn't have an email address specified in the MintHCM system?
System cannot send any message if there isn't an address provided, so they won't get any message. Keep that in mind while scheduling call reminders.
