Auto Pop Salesforce Cases


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 [1] select the Settings [2] tab.
  • Scroll down to Enable Auto Pop Up Functionality.
  • Switch the toggle button to the Enabled [3] position.

Note: Enabling this functionality will only consume one push topic 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.

Example: Case Pop When an Inbound Call Starts

As an example, the instructions below will guide you how to prompt auto case pop from an inbound call. 


  • Select Automations [4].
  • Click the Customize [5] button located at the bottom of the list. This will open the "Integrations Manager" page in Talkdesk.


  • Select Salesforce [6] from the list of integrations. 


  • Select Add New Automated Task [7].


  • Use the dropdown menus [8] under “Choose an event and action” to configure “When an inbound call starts in Talkdesk Internal then create a case in Salesforce”.


  • Set Auto Pop-up Case [9] to true.
    • Note: Section 3, “Define action”, allows you to customize the Subject, Description, and other parameters by which these cases are created. Visit the article Automated Task Fields for more information. 
  • Make sure the automation is ON [10].
  • Once finished, click Save [11].

The auto pop up will also work with other automations. For example:

  • When an inbound call ends in Talkdesk, create a case in Salesforce.
  • When an outbound call ends in Talkdesk, create a case in Salesforce.

For more information on how to configure your Salesforce automations in Talkdesk, please check Talkdesk for Salesforce Automations.


Note: If you have assignment rules set up in Salesforce, make sure that they are not reassigning the cases created through these automations.
