This feature allows you to record your calls, whether they are incoming calls by enabling "Record calls" in the settings of your DID number, or outgoing calls by enabling "Record calls" in the settings of your Sub account. The customer portal also offers a page that allows you to manage your recorded calls. This powerful feature not only gives you the option to listen the calls from the portal, but you can also download the recordings and send them to an email address. This feature is the perfect solution for companies that wish to maintain recordings of calls made and/or received for quality purposes, or for our clients who simply want to record calls for security reasons.
