Review recorded conversations - Amazon Connect

Review recorded conversations

Managers can review past conversations between agents and customers. To set this up, you need to set up recording behavior, assign managers the appropriate permissions, and then show them how to access the recorded conversations.

When is a conversation recorded? A conversation is recorded only when the contact is connected to an agent. The contact is not recorded before then, when they are connected to the IVR. If the call is transferred externally, the call recording stops when the agent drops from the call.


When call recording is enabled, the recording is placed in your S3 bucket shortly after the contact is disconnected. Then the recording is available for you to review it using the steps in this article.

You can also access the recording from the customer's contact trace record (CTR). The recording is available in the CTR, however, only after the contact has left the After Contact Work (ACW) state.
