Manage what contacts are recorded
Use the Inclusion/Exclusion page to proactively manage which contacts Calabrio ONE automatically records and which contacts it automatically excludes from being recorded. You can have multiple include and exclude rules.
EXAMPLE Create rules to exclude all outgoing contacts from recording, record all contacts that begin with “612822,” or record all calls from the United Kingdom.
IMPORTANT Settings on the Inclusion/Exclusion page only apply when Calabrio ONE records the contacts. These settings do not apply if contacts are recorded outside of Calabrio ONE, such as with most contact center as a service (CCaaS) integrations. See the Integration Note for your organization’s integration for details.
- You have the Administer QM permission.
- Your organization records contacts through Calabrio ONE.
Application Management > QM > QM Contact Flows > Inclusion/Exclusion
IMPORTANT By default, Calabrio ONE records all calls. If fields in the exclusion rule (such as the pattern type or direction) are missing, are incomplete, or use wildcard characters inaccurately, Calabrio ONE records these calls.
EXAMPLE You create an Inclusion rule to record only calls with a Called Number of 1234567. A call comes in, but the ACD does not supply a Called Number. You have not created an Exclusion rule to exclude calls with an empty Called Number. Calabrio ONE records this call.
Create a recording rule
- Click Add.
Enter the phone number in the Pattern field. Do not use hyphens. You can use wildcards in this field to create rules that apply to multiple numbers:
? — A single digit
EXAMPLE 612822???? = all numbers that begin with 612-822.
* — Any number of digits
EXAMPLE 612* = all numbers that begin with 612.
+ — Country code indicator (must be the first character in the field)
EXAMPLE +44* = contacts in the United Kingdom.
- EMPTY — The ACD does not supply data for this field.
Select the characteristics of the call from the Pattern Type field.
- Calling Number—The ANI
- Called Number—The DNIS
- Phone Number—Some ACDs populate data in a field named Phone Number if the Calling Number or Called Number is empty. You can create rules with this pattern type if your ACD does this.
- Any—Some ACDs populate data in a field named Any if the Calling Number or Called Number is empty. You can create rules with this pattern type if your ACD does this.
- Select the call Direction.
- Click Add. The rule appears on the page.
Edit a rule
- Click the pencil icon next to the rule.
- Edit the rule as needed.
- Click Update.
Delete a rule
- Click the trash can icon next to the rule. The Confirm Delete window opens.
- Click Delete. The rule disappears from the list.
Import a list of recording rules
BEST PRACTICE To make sure that your import is formatted correctly, first Export a list of recording rules, edit the list as needed, and import it.
- Click Import at the upper right corner of the page. The Import window opens.
- Click Choose File.
- Select the file to upload. The Import window previews the new and existing rules that are in the file.
- Click Import. The new rules appear on the page.
IMPORTANT If you export a list that includes an international calling code with the plus (+) sign, Excel treats the number as a mathematical expression. To use these lists, convert the exported .CSV file to text (.TXT), open the file in Excel, and define this as a text formatted column.
- Click Export at the upper right corner of the page. The file inclusion_exclusion_list.csv downloads to your device.
- Automate QM workflows—Create rules that tell Calabrio ONE what to do with recordings.
