Clearing Application Data on Callbar

Follow

Callbar can cache invasive data through normal activity. Just like your browser, it becomes necessary to clear the application's cache/data from time to time.

These are some of the symptoms which can benefit from clearing Callbar's cache:

  • An agent is spontaneously unable to log in, even after resetting their password.
  • Callbar is unresponsive or lags when answering/rejecting calls.
  • Mismatched statuses (e.g., "Available" while on a call, "On A Call" while being rung).
  • Deactivated dispositions are displayed on the call summary window.

 

Clearing Callbar’s Cache in macOS

Using the Terminal

Note: These instructions direct you to delete files from your computer using a terminal interface. If you are not familiar with this, please contact your supervisor or an IT resource.

If you are using macOS, please follow these steps to clear Callbar's cache:

  1. Quit Callbar completely.
  2. Open Terminal.
  3. Navigate to your home directory if you're not already there.
  4. Run rm -rf Library/Application\ Support/Callbar/
  5. Reopen Callbar.

Note: The command in step 4 does not emit a success message. Expected behavior is Terminal will execute the task silently (no success or error message) and immediately present a new command line prompt.

 

Alternative to Terminal for macOS

If you are unable to access the Terminal, please follow these steps:

  1. Log out from Callbar.
  2. Go to Finder and select Go.
  3. Press and hold the Option key (⌥).
  4. Select Library from the Go drop-down menu (this option will appear).
  5. Select Application Support > Callbar > Cache.
  6. Delete all content in the folder.
  7. Log back in to Callbar. Remember to always log out and quit Callbar at the end of a shift.
