Admins can create agent groupings that reflect organizational groupings such as location, tenure, supervisor and other groups that may assist with targeted reporting.

Category (also known as call events)
A key event detected on a call. For example, when an agent says, "This call may be monitored and recorded" you may see a "Monitoring statement" category on the call. Categories are created by trained team members or admins.

Custom groups (also known as Teams)
Custom groups allow you to filter search results by customized groups or “teams” that may exist in your organization. This could be a location, function (sales), campaign, supervisor, etc.

Phrases are contextual groupings of words in a call transcript relevant to an idea or category.
An example would be the phrase “I just received mail that my account has overdrawn.” This could be used to train Tethr to recognize a category such as “reason for call: Insufficient funds".

Public Labels

Tethr can detect when personal data (such as credit card information) is given during the call. This personal data is automatically removed from the call audio and transcript to ensure privacy.

A graphical at-a-glance view of data from a search. Reports are shown in dashboards. To create a report, a user first begins in Search & browse to set any combination of search terms, categories, and filters to achieve a desired insight result. Then the user can add the saved results to a new or existing dashboard. Learn more about reports


Scripts give admins the ability to teach Tethr what events to automatically include toward the category's data in future calls.
• Typically built off of groups of saved phrases
• Used in the call center to track agent’s statements and disclosures

Script Adherence (for admins)

Script Violation
