  • Assuming your extension has on-demand recording permissions, you can record a call at any time by dialing the dialling the feature code for "In-Call Asterisk Toggle Call Recording." (This feature code is what the phone dials if you use the Record button on your phone.)
  • The default call recording feature code is *1. If you change this feature code in the PBX GUI, the phone button will automatically use the new feature code.
  • If you are unsure of your call recording feature code, please review the Feature Codes Module wiki to learn more about how to view and change this code.

Useful to know

It could be useful to put the "On-demand Call Recording" on pause for some reason like:

  • part of the ongoing call cannot be recorded because of the law enforcement;
  • it needs a break to check other information or consult with another person;
  • the procedure you're following requires you to skip some part of the recording along the whole call;
  • other scenarios

For all the above mentioned cases or for similar scenarios, you can put "on pause" your recording just dialling  once again the related feature code for "In-Call Asterisk Toggle Call Recording". During the same call, this can be repeated as many time as you need so that the final recording includes only the relevant part of the conversation: the Call Recording module will append Call Recording parts one to each others every time the toggle is dialled. For each ongoing recorded call the PBX will produce just one recording file.
