The conversation search page can be accessed through the Conversations \ Search menu.

This page allows the user to enter the search criteria to find recorded conversations. The search criteria attributes are divided into groups, and placed on three separate vertical tabs to make search criteria definition easier:

  • Basic Search Options tab includes the most commonly used search fields.
  • Advanced Search Options tab includes the remaining technical attributes that allow more sophisticated search criteria to be defined and used.
  • Metadata and Markers tab allows the user to narrow the search using the business data associated with the conversation records (stored in custom metadata fields and markers).
  • Test Search allows the user to search in the text recorded from instant message conversations. Any combination of the following fields can be used:
    • All of the listed phrases
    • Any of the listed phrases
    • None of the listed phrases
  • Speech Search (if applicable) allows the user to search for phrases in the recorded audio conversation. For more information see Using Speech Search.

The user can navigate between these tabs until all of the search criteria have been specified, and then initiate the search by pressing the Search button below the tabs. The search is executed based on the combined set of search field values on all tabs.

Resetting the search fields

After setting the search criteria, the system stores the field values, so whenever the user loads the search page the previous settings are restored and displayed. To reset the fields, click on the Reset Search link in the bottom right corner of the search panel, or click on the  button on the top.

Saving and reusing search criteria

It is possible to save several different search criteria, then reuse them whenever it's required. For more information, see: Reusing search criteria - saved queries

Interval

The time interval of the search results can be set under the Interval section. The left date represents the oldest time of the recordings and the right one is the oldest. This criteria works based on the Start Time property of the recordings.

In order to modify the interval, click on any of the dates. The calendar pops up where the date and time can be set.

For changing the month, click on either the left (<) or right (>) arrows on the top. For changing the year, click on either the double left (<<) of double right (>>) arrows. The day can be selected by clicking on the date in the calendar.

The time can be set on the bottom. To increase the value of either the hour or the minute counter, left-click on the numbers. To decrease the values, use SHIFT + left click. The values can be set also by holding the left button of the mouse, then dragging to left or right.

Phone Number

The Phone Number field can be used for searching based on the From or To fields of the recordings.

Multiple phone numbers or SIP addresses can be provided. In this case, there will be an OR logic between the provided values. While typing, the system also provides suggestions based on the configured extensions in the system.

A predefined list of numbers - or Participant Sets in other words - also can be provided by clicking on the  button. For more information about the Participant Sets, see: Participant sets

User

The User field can be used for searching based on the From (Verba) or To (Verba) fields of the recordings.

In this case, there will be an OR logic between the provided values. While typing, the system also provides suggestions based on the configured users in the system.

Multiple labels can be provided. In this case, there will be an OR logic between the provided values. While typing, the system also provides suggestions based on the configured labels in the system. For more information, see: Labels

Case

Instead of selecting the labels one by one, cases can be used for searching based on labels assigned to the same case. To use this search field, the cases have to be created and the labels have to be associated with the cases. For more information, see: Cases

Time zones in search results

In Advanced Search Options, users can temporarily change the timezone of the current search. All time information will be presented in the selected time zone in the search results, when you Reset the Search fields.

Scope

By default, the system shows only the online conversations, so the searching will be fast also in case of a large number of old archived recordings. If this setting is set to Archived Conversations too, then the search will apply to the archived recording also.
