Fastcall call settings for call recording

You can turn call recording on separately for inbound and outbound calls.

“Dual-channel recording” splits the recording, so that one party is on the ‘left’ side of the recording and one on the ‘right’. This is useful for editing the recording or listening to one side of the call.

“Recording indicator in widget” displays a notification to the user that the call is being recorded.

“Allow users to turn off recording” does what it says.

“Delete recordings older than” allows you to purge recordings in line with your data retention policies.

“Play disclosure” allows you to select a message to be played before the call starts.

Where call recordings are stored

Call recordings are stored in Twilio, not in your Salesforce Org. Fastcall puts a link to the recording into the call record on your Salesforce Org.

Add call recording to the Salesforce Task page layout

Edit your Salesforce Task page layout to add the call recording URL to the page. You can use Salesforce Profiles to limit access to the page layout. See here for details.

Delete call recording button and history tracking

Fastcall has a custom button to delete a call recording in Twilio. The button can be added to the custom object for Calls and as above can be limited by Profile. When the Salesforce Task is deleted the call recording is not deleted in Twilio. The call recording is only deleted by API. You can set Field History Tracking on the call recording field on the call object to know the date and user deleting a call recording.

By default, recordings have no access control on them. This means that anyone with the link can listen to the recording. Make sure you have understood and accept this before turning on call recording. Fastcall can limit access to call recordings via Twilio by setting ‘Enforce HTTP Auth on Media URLs’, but this may interfere with voicemail messages and will make it impossible for your users to listen to call recordings without authentication details from Twilio.
