Hi! I am Pritam Shekhawat, Salesforce MVP. I am working as a 3x Certified Salesforce developer as well I am a co-leader of Noida Salesforce user group. Most important thing which I like about Salesforce is giving back. There aren’t enough words in the dictionary to describe the significance of giving back.

  1. Thank you Pritam! for that post
    I like it that feature.

    So once the call is completed then it will save call recording some where?
    If yes then it will be good for us to analysis the calls 🙂

    1. Glad to hear that you liked that 🙂 As of now it will not save the recording in Salesforce but during the call on after the end of the call it will open a task composer window where Sales user can put their notes about the call in comment sections. Hopefully, in future, they save the recordings as well !!
