How do I access recordings? #

Call recordings are easily accessed through any of the Call List reports. To playback a call, simply run a call list report and use the a saved or quick filter to identify the specific call to replay.

To help find call recordings, there is a dedicated filter option to ensure that the report only includes calls for which there are recordings:


Once the call has been identified, access the Call Session view by clicking on the first field of the row (usually the call Start Time).


Depending on how the system configured, their maybe one or more recordings for a call. If the call has been transferred between different users, there may be a recording for each segment.

If the recording section does not appear, either the call was not recorded or you do not have permission to play it back.

Clicking on a recording's time-line will initiate the playback of the recording in the embedded media player at the bottom of the page:


The media player provides controls for pause, resume, volume and mute. To download a recording, press the download icon to the left of the volume control:
