How To Use My Recording Feature In 8x8 Agent Console


8x8 Contact Center's Agent Console allows you to record up to ten voice recordings and play them during an inbound or outbound call. When you place an outbound call and reach voicemail, you can choose to play your pre-recorded message, such as a campaign message, and hang up. The application plays the voice recording and terminates the call. If you have direct agent access, you can record a personal voicemail greeting to be played to callers.
