Recording your conference calls can be really handy; whether you're taking the minutes and need an extra minute or you want to check exactly what your boss asked you to do for this week's meeting. Call recording is available on the Professional or Enterprise plans on Call.Group. You can record as many calls as you like but be sure to download them within 7 days. This is as they will be removed from the Call.Group database for data security reasons.
