You can configure and change the following options:
- Hide the Talkdesk icon that shows next to phone numbers, when these are highlighted by the Click-to-Call Extension
- Choose where you want the call to be initiated on: Talkdesk Callbar, Talkdesk Main or Callbar Electron App
- Enable an “Extended Detection Mode”. This will force Talkdesk to look for phone numbers in any website even when not following the recommended practices and format.
