Stop recording of outbound calls

For voice services, you can discontinue call recording upon transferring a call to an external number.

Instances in which you may not want to record calls include when:

  • Customers require calls not to be recorded after transfer to an external number.
  • Customers require just the consult portion of the call to be recorded in order to have reference data for the agent.
  • Agents must not record calls when transferring to a specific agent.

Stop recording of an outbound call after the last agent leaves

This selection allows an agent to make a consult call to a public switched telephone network (PSTN) destination (i.e., an external phone number), complete the transfer, and have the call recording continue if the agent’s call was recorded. The call will not be recorded once the agent leaves.

Continue recording of the calls transferred outside

This selection specifies that the call will be recorded even after transfer.

except when calling the following numbers

To create exceptions to your call recording/stopping selections, click add. Adding phone numbers allows you to stop recording when transferring to specific clients, as well as to stop call recording after transfer on a per-service basis.

The default value is to stop recording. If you want recording to continue upon transfer, you must make your selection from Call Recording.
