A recording is a recorded conversation between a Customer and an Agent. Before conversations can be recorded, the UseAudioRecording parameter must be set to TRUE. This also triggers Anywhere365 to play the Welcome Recording message after the Welcome Message. The recording will automatically start when an Agent accepts the call.
To all Agents to pause, stop and restart recordings, the AgentCanEditAudioRecording paramater must also be set to TRUE. If you want to save recordings to SharePoint, the CopyRecordingToSharePoint parameter must be set to TRUE.
Explanation per field
Recordings will be stored on SharePoint automatically (if the setting CopyRecordingToSharePoint is TRUE) together with some meta data:
|Type||This is the file type.|
|Name||This is the Correlationid (GUID GUID stands for Globally Unique Identifier and is a pseudo random number used in software applications that is assumed to be unique. The total number of unique keys (2<sup>128</sup> of 3.4028×10<sup>38</sup>) is very large and the probability of the creating the same GUID twice is very small, though not 100% guaranteed.), created by Anywhere365.|
|Modified||This is the date the recording is added.|
|Modified By||This is the account that adds the recording.|
|Caller||Uri of the customer.|
Configure Recording Functionality
Inbound recording (Customer > UCC > Agent )
For inbound recording, no Interceptor The Interceptor is a service installed on Anywhere365. It monitors all calls during set-up on endpoints of active Agents. By intercepting that call set-up and redirecting it to an Anywhere365 UCC it lets you manage the direct inbound and outbound dialogues of the contact center agents. is needed. This is a built in functionality of the Anywhere365 UCC A Unified Contact Center, or UCC, is a queue of interactions (voice, email, IM, etc.) that are handled by Agents. Each UCC has its own settings, IVR menus and Agents. Agents can belong to one or several UCCs and can have multiple skills (competencies). A UCC can be visualized as a contact center “micro service”. Customers can utilize one UCC (e.g. a global helpdesk), a few UCC’s (e.g. for each department or regional office) or hundreds of UCC’s (e.g. for each bed at a hospital). They are interconnected and can all be managed from one central location. application.
If UseAudioRecording is TRUE, then all incoming call accepted by an Agent on the UCC will be recorded.

If both settings “AgentCanEditAudioRecording” and “UseAudioRecording” are TRUE, an Agent is able to manage the recoding of a conversation.
If an Agent wants to stop the recording of a conversation, then the command “REC STOP” should be typed in the IM window of the Call.
The Recording will be stopped and can’t be restarted anymore.
If an Agent wants to pause the recording of a conversation, then the “REC PAUSE” command should be typed in the IM window of the Call.
The Recording is now paused and can be restarted.
If an Agent wants to resume a paused Recording, then the “REC START” command should be typed in the IM window of the Call.
The paused Recording will now start recording again.
Recordings per Agent
