Recording Statement
During a call, agents can record parts of the call. For example, agents can record when a customer gives consent for services.
There can be multiple recording statements for a single call.
Recorded statements should be saved as evidence in your CRM system, with a link to play back or download directly from your CRM system.
This feature requires Studio scripting. Professional Services can help you set up your script, but there might be a fee for this service. Contact your account manager to learn more.
Stereo Recording
Previously, only customers with Recording and QM Analytics/Interaction Analytics could use stereo recording.
For new customers, all voice interactions are recorded in stereo.
Stereo recording enables users to leverage analytic solutions, record speakers separately, and play back only one side of a call.
As part of the Spring ’21 release, all existing customers will record in stereo. Contact your account manager to learn more.
Interaction Analytics
The following features are included in the November 2020 Minor Release.
Dataset Sampling

Indicators in a slider will inform you when you are in a percentage that results in the fastest loading times, intermediate load times, and when you are within a range that will result in longer load times. This will empower you to decide whether to wait a bit longer for results or decrease the sample size.
