Recordings

Purpose

A recording is a recorded conversation between a Customer and an Agent. Before conversations will be recorded, the setting “UseAudioRecording” must be 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.

An Agent is able to pause/restart and stop a recording when the setting “AgentCanEditAudioRecording” is TRUE. Furthermore, it is possible to save recordings to SharePoint, if the setting “CopyRecordingToSharePoint” is TRUE.

Warning We strongly advise not using recordings in combination with SQL Express, due to database size limitations.
