Call Recording is exactly what it sounds like: a feature that allows you to record your inbound and/or outbound calls and save the recordings to your CRM or platform.
Call Recordings are used by smrtPhone clients for a variety of reasons, including:
Perform quality checks on agents and keep track of their performance
Provide training opportunities for agents
Understand better why deals close or not
Ensure important/complex deal information is captured
Enable compliance while guarding against disputes
If disclosure is required, you can train your staff to announce or you can set a greeting message in your call flow (for inbound calls) because if you are in a call, you cannot turn the call recording off.
All these setting changes (on/off) are made while you are not on a call, you cannot start/stop the recording mid-call.
In this article you'll find:
Recording Inbound Calls
You can enable or disable the recordings for your incoming calls by accessing your Admin Dashboard > Admin > Call Flows.
Here you select the flow you wish to disable or enable recordings for, select the edit button (blue phone icon), and edit your Flow accordingly.
This setting is available when you customize your Call Flow when you select some of the applets (like Dial Applet or Round Robin Applet).
The Call Recording dropdown sets how the calls will be recorded - from when it starts ringing or when it is answered. You can also disable call recording for this portion of the call flow.
Recording Outbound Calls
You can enable or disable the recordings for your outbound calls by accessing Admin > Account Settings. There's only one setting for managing Outbound recordings (at the Account level, not the User level) in Account Settings.
Recording Calls in a smrtDialer Campaign
You can make changes to the Campaign Calls Recording function by accessing your Campaign Settings found under each smrtDialer Campaign that you created.
This feature comes ON by default, but Account Owner/Users with granted permissions can switch it ON or OFF at any point between dialing sessions by going to smrtDialer > Campaigns > Select the Campaign > Campaign Settings.
How Do You Listen to Recorded Calls?
Your call recordings can be easily found on your smrtPhone Dashboard. Just go to the upper right corner, under My Account, and click Billing & Logs.
