To set the call recording permissions:

  • Click Edit. This allows you to change the permissions in the call section.

Under the Call section, you can set the permissions to record the call. There are three permissions for the four types of users of the your LeadSquared ( Administrator, Marketing User, Sales Manager and Sales User). They are:

  • All Calls – All inbound/outbound calls of any duration is recorded, if the permission is to All Calls.
  • Random Calls – Random Calls setting records only the first call in an hour. Also the call duration should be 60 seconds or more in order to get recorded.

Example: Consider an incoming call at 15.00 hours. The call duration is 2 minutes and the call gets recorded. After this, a call at 15.45 does not get captured. Only after an hour, the next call with a duration of 60 seconds or more gets recorded.

  • No Calls – This is the default permission. No call activities are recorded.
  • Click Save.

Once the settings are completed, the recorded calls are saved in mp4 format (with call duration) to the call activity in the corresponding Lead Details page of the web application. You can either listen to or download the recording.
