Quality management

This is the process to do quality management (QA) on calls:

  2. Make some calls.
  3. Set "Review target" at Project > Calls out > Settings > Review target.
  4. Listen to the selected call recordings by clicking the "Review calls" at Project > Project.
  5. If you don't have the "Review calls" button you'll need to get yourself added as a reviewer at Project > Members > Reviewers.
  6. Categorize each call against 24 "good", and 35 "bad" critiques (keyboard shortcuts make this easier) found at zipier.com/help/.Zipier_Phone_System/Quality_management/

  8. Continue until the target is reached.
  9. Alternately, you can also find those calls at Project > Calls out > Calls list.
