Call Recording Playback Guide

Updated 1 week ago by RM

Call Recordings

All of BCH's live call services can be recorded if required, and recordings can be stored on our cloud storage service for up to seven years. Before configuring any services with call recording please check with the ICO to ensure you are acting within the current GDPR regulations.

Accessing your recordings is available via the Call Handling option within the Management Portal menu.

Access Levels

The first user to access the call recording application is automatically granted "Admin" rights, which allows them to manage the access rights of other users.

A Standard User, only has access to search and playback recordings, with the option to download call recordings if granted by an Admin in the Users section.

An Admin user, has full access to all facilities, including the ability to change other users to Admin Users.

In a change from previous versions, users from Parent Accounts can no longer access call recordings, any user requiring access to call recordings must be user of the recording account.

Search, Playback and Download

There are two Search options available, Customer Search and the Advanced Search

Customer Search

You can enter the customers number in full, or the last few digits of their number, to avoid the differences in network CLI formats we received, often numbers are received starting +447, 00447 or 07

The date can be expanded to any time with the same year, and within your call recording storage period.

Advanced Search

The Advanced search provides further options to filter results, including the number the customer dialled, the call date period and any additional Metadata previously added to the call recording record.

Access Reports

Each time a call recordings is played back or download an access log is created, and Admin Users have the ability to view and search those records ensuring compliance officers can maintain records on monitoring regulatory and any un-authorised access.
