    Hi Nancy, 

    Thanks for the feedback. To ensure you have clarity on definitions, please refer to this article on how Zendesk defines "team lead" and "admins". In short, an agent does not have access to live calls unless they are deemed a "team lead". Regarding additional roles and permissions, we will need to consult with our colleagues to see where this work is placed on their roadmap.

    Nicole Saunders was there an announcement that stated the role could now delete recordings?

    Hello Nicole,

    There is no announcement on this matter. To be clear, the ability to delete recording is always available to Talk 'Team Lead'.

    +1 in our business we can allow only admins to delete call recordings. 

  • Audrey Beukenkamp

    +1 from our business too.  My need is that I need Admin rights, but also to listen to live calls.  Why would an Admin (who is a higher level of access) not have the ability to listen to live calls too?  If I change myself to a Team Lead then I do not have the Admin rights needed to adjust settings in the system.  Can Zendesk provide access to listen to live calls to those who are Administrators?

  • Nancy Caldwell

    I agree with Audrey - Admin should be able to listen to live calls.  Team lead role should have access to live calls, but not delete calls like they do.  

  • Anastasia Kachanova

    Agree with Audrey
