      • .mp3: Smaller file size. 1 GB of storage will hold approximately 4,000 minutes of recorded calls.

      Result:

      • If you enable call recording system-wide and on an individual line, ring group, or phone number; only one copy of call will be recorded.
      • If you enable call recording system-wide or on a phone number, as well as on an individual call queue; multiple copies of the call will be recorded. The queue will generate a recording that excludes the hold music, where the other recordings will include the hold music.
      • If you enable call recording system-wide or on a phone number, as well as on an individual conference bridge; multiple copies of the call will be recorded. The bridge will generate a recording that starts when the first participant enters and ends when the last participant exits, where the other recordings will be from the perspective of each participant.
