Introduction

Call recording provides a number of benefits for both a business and it’s clients and customers. From quality control, to modernized record keeping – this simple process is definitely one worth undertaking. It is worth noting however, that storage is something to be considered if you intend to store your recordings for extended periods of time.

Note: Call recording must be enabled on your extension by your administrator. Recordings of the call will only be accessible by your 3CX administrator unless you are specifically given access.

  • When calling from an IP phone, the entire call will be recorded.

2. Press the “Rec” button again to stop recording.
