IMPORTANT: In many jurisdictions, it is a requirement to announce the call is being recorded.  To that end, you can insert this prompt into either a menu that fails over to the recorded ring group, or if you have ACD, as an intro announcement on the acd group being recorded itself:  Call May Be Recorded audio file

This feature allows recording of inbound and outbound calls. Extensions can be put into groups which makes it easier to keep track of calls. There can be jobs that only record inbound calls, outbound calls, or both.

Recording Methods

Manual Recordings:  

  • Initiated by agent, or Extension User while on call by dialing *# or pressing a programmed key on the phone.
    • These recordings are either in Agent Recordings (if they are recordings by an agent taking a queue call).  Or they are available in the work folder in the recording extension's mailbox. 
    • You will need to ensure that the Call Recording is enabled in the proper places for this to work:
      • Trunks
      • Ring Groups
      • Extension initiating the recording
      • Extension being recorded

Initiated by QManager

    • These recordings are available through View Recordings in QManager

Third Party Recording

  • IPitomy has implemented integration with Trivium to support their call recording application.

IPitomy Call Recording Application

  • Licensed IPitomy Feature that records all calls on designated destinations.
    • NOTE: This cannot record Conference Rooms

NOTE: When using the IPitomy Call Recording feature, it is advised to configure an FTP to push those recordings to so they can be keep for a long time, and to set the recording job to purge after an FTP push so that the file size does not get too large.

Archived Recordings

After a day, the PBX will archive the recordings from the previous day. These are put into a .zip folder and can be viewed on the PBX or downloaded. If you download them, there will be an index.html file contained within the .zip that gives information about each recording (Recording Target, Filename, Size, Date, Source & Destination) so you can find the recording you are looking for. You can also then click the link and it will play the file you want.
