    I am testing a migration path from migrating a Asterisk/FreePBX server to a 3CX Server.

    3CX stores recordings in the default directory: C:\ProgramData\3CX\Instance1\Data\Recordings\

    It uses the name format: DisplayName_Ext_DialedNum_YearMonthDayHourMinuteSecond.wav

    Can I just put fiels in this directory as long as it is according to the above name format?

    I tried and restarted the server,. but nothing is seen on the recording page. Should I also edit/add records to a database somewhere?

    As soon as I have a working migration path/scenario, I will write about it!

    Kind regards,

    Roel Broersma

    I just tried this and it seems to work, manually placing .wav files in a directory.

    What I did was in folder C:\ProgramData\3CX\Instance1\Data\Recordings\, I created subfolders for extensions, so all the recordings for ext 101 would be in C:\ProgramData\3CX\Instance1\Data\Recordings\101\, and if in this folder you put a .wav file in format:
    It showed up, no restart required, just click away from "Recordings" and back again.
