Status of faxes received 

GoFax provides one of two results for each fax call to a GoFax receive number:

Complete: The sending fax machine/service dialed and successfully connected to your fax number. The sending fax machine/service sent fax page data; GoFax received each page, then sent and received the standard "page received OK" signal before the sending fax machine sent the next page. Once GoFax confirmed receipt of all sent pages, the sending fax machine advised the call was disconnecting and ended the call.

Incomplete: The sending fax machine/service dialed and successfully connected to your fax number..The sending fax machine/service began sending fax data but the call was terminated before GoFax sent the "page received OK" signal for every page provided (either by line dropout, manual termination at the sender’s end or automatic termination at our end if data transmission stopped but the connection remained up). 

Downloading fax reports

You can download the results of your receive history on all fax number services as a .csv (comma separated values) file, by clicking “Download List as CSV” below the “Fax List for” drop-down menu.
