With Auto Pop Up for Salesforce Cases (also known as “auto case pop”), admins can configure Talkdesk to automatically display a new case to agents in Salesforce when a call is made or received in Talkdesk, thus reducing agents' effort and time, as they can immediately start adding information into the case.
How does it work?
- This functionality is disabled by default in Talkdesk for Salesforce managed packages.
- In Talkdesk, it needs to be enabled on the required automation.
- Talkdesk will then pop cases open in Salesforce for the agent making or receiving the call.
- It’s available in Salesforce Classic, Console, and Lightning.
Note: This feature does not work on some Salesforce Classic tabs namely: Case Details, Reports, Dashboard, Talkdesk Live and Talkdesk Admin.
Enabling the Auto Pop Up Functionality
Follow these steps to enable Auto Pop Up for Salesforce Cases.
- In the App Launcher select Talkdesk.
- In Talkdesk Admin  select the Settings  tab.
- Scroll down to Enable Auto Pop Up Functionality.
- Switch the toggle button  to the “Enabled” position.
Note: Enabling this functionality will only consume one PushTopic and a field will be added to the case object. Also note that standard users, by default, will not be able to Auto Pop Salesforce Cases. To do this, they must be manually assigned PushTopic Read permissions.
