Pulling back the curtain on GoTo's latest releases

2. Storage for call recordings

GoToConnect customers can now configure their system to record calls. They now have two options as to where they want to store their call recordings: in their own AWS S3 bucket OR GoToConnect's storage capabilities.

GoToConnect storage is a fantastic option for users who don't need to retain recordings for long periods of time or don't want to handle a separate AWS account.

You can look forward to a variety of additional features coming in 2021 specifically related to call recordings – such as enhanced transcription, search, call recording management, and much more.

3. In-product surveys and feedback

Would you like to let us know how your GoToConnect experience has been during your most recent session? We've added the optional capability to provide more detailed feedback about call quality and reliability, allowing you to share feedback with us during your experience – you can also ask us questions or request improvements!

At any point in time, users can go to Settings and tap on Feedback to submit a feature request, report a bug, or provide general feedback relating to Voice, Messaging, Meetings or Contacts experiences.

Having a voice quality survey allows us to get a better picture of the issues faced by our customers, and lets us track improvements on both the backend and mobile experiences in a measurable way. Additionally, users will be able to send detailed feedback in relation to any part of the GoToConnect mobile app – including feature requests, bug reporting and general feedback.

4. Call parking

Call parking allows a user to put a call on hold from one phone so that another person can pick up the call on another phone. 

5. Unified call history

End users now have a unified call history across mobile, web and desktop, making it much more convenient for users to communicate, regardless of which device they're on.

6. Improved call stability, reliability, performance and notifications

We're constantly improving our overall telephony experience for our users. In the coming months, you'll experience a continuously enhanced GoToConnect experience. This month alone, we've made more than half a dozen bug fixes and improvements to get us off to a great start in 2021.
