QueryForm Structure The values in this structure define the returned population
  Subject   Search by 'Subject' property
    Verb Equals, GreaterThan, GreaterOrEqual, LessThan, LessOrEqual, Like, IncludedIn, Between Read more regarding verb definitions
    VerbData String Case insensitive. Use % as a wildcard for the 'Like' operator. Use commas as delimiters for the 'IncludedIn' and 'Between' operators. To search for a string which includes a comma, precede the comma by a backslash.
  FaxNumber   Search by destination fax number
    Verb Equals, GreaterThan, GreaterOrEqual, LessThan, LessOrEqual, Like, IncludedIn, Between Read more regarding verb definitions
    VerbData String Use % as a wildcard for the 'Like' operator. Use commas as delimiters for the 'IncludedIn' and 'Between' operators.
  DateFrom DateTime Search by date range of submission time, from this value
  DateTo DateTime Search by date range of submission time, to this value
  UserID   Search by the submitting user's username. If the username calling this method is a 'Primary' user, any user in the account can be queried for. If the username calling this method is a 'Normal' user, only its own username can be queried for.

RemoteCSID String Receiving party CSID (up to 20 characters).
PagesSent Short Number of successfully sent pages.
Status Integer Fax status. 0= OK; greater than 0 = Error (See Interfax Error Codes)
Duration Integer Transmission time in seconds.
Subject String Original value as submitted.
PagesSubmitted Short Number of pages originally submitted.
SenderCSID String CSID of calling party
Priority Short Priority assigned to the fax
Units Decimal Number of units to be billed (pages or tenths of minutes)

Mode String For internal use
NumOfTransactions Integer Indicates the number of unique fax files (TIFF's) associated with this transaction. Examples:
- A fax sent to a single recipient will have a value of 1.
- In a batch sent to multiple recipients sharing a single document: the parent transaction will have the number of transactions in this batch while child transactions will have a value of 0.
- In a batch with individual faxes per recipient (like the one generated from a Word Merge): each child transaction will have a value of 1.
MessageID String SMTP message ID of the confirmation email sent after fax completion

Verb Definition

  • By using Equals, the system will look up faxes with this property that match the value entered in VerbData

  • By using GreaterThan, the system will look up faxes with this property that are greater than the value entered in VerbData
  • By using GreaterOrEqual, the system will look up faxes with this property that are greater than or equal to the value entered in VerbData
  • By using LessThan, the system will look up faxes with this property that are less than the value entered in VerbData
  • By using LessOrEqual, the system will look up faxes with this property that are less than or equal to the value entered in VerbData
  • By using Like, the system will look up all of the faxes with this property that the entered in VerbData is included within
  • By using IncludedIn, the system will look up faxes with this property that are included in the list of values entered in VerbData
  • By using Between, the system will look up faxes with this property value between the values entered in VerbData
