Predictive Campaign (Dialler)

Daktela predictive dialler is an outbound call processing system designed to maintain a high level of utilisation and cost efficiency in the contact centre. The dialler automatically calls a list of telephone numbers, filters out unnecessary calls such as answering machines and busy signals and connects an available agent with the customer.

When to record calls

Select if and when calls using this queue should be recorded. Note that these settings can be defined on user and queue level and if they are set differently, the earlier recording option prevails.

Do not record: Calls are not recorded. Note that if this setting is used in the user or queue and the other (user or queue) is set to record calls, the call will be recorded anyway.

Record from call start: Call recording starts from the moment the call first reaches the user or queue (depending on where you are setting up from), which usually includes the ring tone and early media sounds.

Record after call is bridged: Call recording starts when the call parties are connected. This usually eliminates useless time in recordings such as ringing and early media.

Record after call is bridged including call transfer: Call recording will continue even if the call is transferred to another agent or an external number.

Allow call recording interruption

Select if the user or users calling via this queue can pause and resume call recording. Note that if this setting is different in the user or the queue, if one of these is set to "Yes", then recording can be interrupted.
