Local History: saved call recordings and other data
The Local History plugin view shows recorded data that has been saved on the local computer. For the list to have any items, local saving of data must be enabled. For that, go to the Local History page in the configuration settings and select which types of content to save locally at what times. After that, data that concerns you (for example, calls where you were a participant) will be saved to the local hard drive.
The Recording state panel highlights the types of data for which local recording is enabled at this particular moment.
Data is organized into three tabs:
- Local History
- View call details: date and time, duration, user and channel
- Play back voice recordings (individual and group calls)
- Position History
- View position details: date and time, user, GPS position, indoor location
- Message History
- View message details: date and time, sender, addressee, message contents
You can use filtering tools in any of the tabs.
All items in the views are sorted by date in descending order (from latest to earliest).
Local history data is partitioned by combination of TASSTA server and port. If other users connect T.Rodon to the same server and port as you connect to from the same computer, you can see recordings involving those users as well as yourself.
Local History tab specifics
In addition to the recording list, this tab includes the Open local record button, which opens the folder with the saved data in Windows Explorer. This is useful if you want to back up the stored data.
The recording list on the Local History tab lets you browse and listen to previous calls. What exactly is considered a separate recording is configured by the administrator in T.Commander. By default, a new history item is created if 10 seconds or more have passed since the previous push of the PTT button.
Each item in the list shows the date, time and duration of the call, the group to which the call was addressed and the user that made the call. The group is not displayed for individual calls: when the call was not addressed to a group, a username is shown only. Emergency calls are marked as EMERGENCY records.
Each item in the list has player-style controls that you can use for playback: a Play/Pause button, a Stop button and a progress bar.
To filter the items, expand the Filter area. Add the parameters you want to filter by, provide values for them, and click Apply. You can combine as many parameters as necessary – this will have the effect of composing an AND expression. The filter has a mandatory Count parameter that limits the number of records displayed at once.
- To get recordings from a particular time period, add a Date and Time parameter with the Between operator, and set the date and time range for it.
- To get recordings where a specific user participated, add a User name parameter and select the user.
