2.1 Accessing Telecom Billing Reports through CS Link


Telecom provides monthly billing reports summarizing charges by department, charge type, extension and Account.  These reports are distributed via CS Link to recipients as specified by the departments.

Requesting CS Link Access

To request telecom reports, visit the Telecom Billing Reports service page and select the Request Service button.  Once the request is received and processed, report access will take effect beginning with the following month’s bill.

Please note: each department/area can be assigned only one report recipient.  If you request access to a specified department, you may be replacing the current recipient’s access.

Logging in and Viewing Reports

Around the 12th of each month, DoIT Service Management will send an email notification to all report recipients stating that reports are ready to be viewed in CS Link.  To view reports, go to Single Sign-On at sso.csulb.edu and log in using your BeachID and password.  Click on the CS Link chiclet and then click the “View Reports” link.  Locate the report you wish to view and click the link in the Format column.  To delete reports, click the “Delete” link in the Action column.

Accessing Archived Reports

Reports will remain in the View Reports screen for 60 days after being run or until deleted by the recipient, whichever comes first.  After reports have been deleted from the View Reports screen, they can still be accessed using the Archived Reports utility.  To access archived reports, click the “Online Query” link in the header and then click “ARCHRPTS - Retrieve Archived Reports.”  Enter the report ID and date range for the reports you wish to view and click the Submit button.
