Call Recording

3CX facilitates the following call recording options:

  • Record all calls.
  • Record a fixed percentage.
  • Record calls on demand.

Hunt Groups

3CX can be set to call multiple extensions or sequential extensions as required meaning calls are answered by the staff member most appropriate to dealing with the enquiry. Each hunt group is allocated an incoming outside number, and an extension number. A call coming in to either number can be set to:

  • Ring all the phones in the group at once
  • Ring each phone in turn, starting with the extension that least recently rang
  • Ring each phone in turn starting with the extension which has been idle longest


3CX includes twinning which allows you to twin your extension with a mobile, home landline, or any number of your choice. In this way a call, internal or external, rings your extension and simultaneously your mobile or other twinned phone and you answer the call on either device.

Flexible choice of lines

3CX supports traditional phone trunks from individual PSTN (ordinary) lines, ISDN2, and ISDN30, and also supports VoIP based "SIP Trunk" connections - in whatever combination suits you. Wizards provide phone lines with non-geographic numbers (e.g. 0808, 0300) and geographic numbers for any location which means you can have a "London" number even if your offices are in Amersham, if that suits your purposes.
