Using Talkdesk Mobile Agent - Android & iOS



In order to use Talkdesk Mobile Agent, you'll need the following:

  • An Android smartphone or Tablet running Android Marshmallow or a later version, or, an Apple iPhone or iPad running iOS 13 or a later version, or, an Apple iPad running iOS 13 or a later version.
  • Network connection with a minimum 3G data signal.

Using the App

The following guides in the sections below are based around using a mobile device. For tablets, you will have exactly the same functionality but with an interface adapted to the new screen, taking advantage of the increased viewport. Mobile Agent for Tablet supports Split View allowing you to work on two apps at the same time. Please refer to your device documentation to know how to leverage Split View and Multitasking. The Mobile Agent can also be accessed using an Apple Watch, full details can be found here.

  2. In the account screen, select your new status from the list [7].

When you receive an Inbound call, you’ll see different information depending on your device and current navigation in the operating system. In all cases you are given the option to Accept or Reject / Decline the call [8]. The first time you accept a call in iOS, you have to first allow the Mobile App to access the microphone [9].

Outbound Calls

Finding Contacts

To manually find a contact, click on the Contacts icon to go to the "Contacts" screen [10] and scroll to find the a specific contact.


To search for a contact, start typing [11] one of the following:

  • Name
  • Number
  • Mail
  • Company


The list is populated with all relevant matches [12], from where you can select your specific contact. All recent searches are stored in Mobile Agent for quick navigation.

When you tap the desired contact, all relevant information is displayed including:

  • Name
  • Tags
  • Number
  • Email
  • Company
  • Address
  • Contact pop

You can call the contact using the call shortcut next to the number. If the outbound caller ID is not selectable, it will initiate the call automatically. On the other hand, if the outbound caller ID is selectable, it will open the dialer.

If the contact is synced from Salesforce / Zendesk (and it or they are installed on the same device), the Contact Pop section appears allowing you to open this contact on the Salesforce / Zendesk app.

Note: Talkdesk custom fields are not yet available in the Mobile Agent app.

Selecting the Outbound Number

If you have more than one number linked to your account, you can change the outbound number from where the call will be made easily by going to the Call Activity screen [13] and tapping the keypad button [14]. From there, tap Team Number [15] and select the number you wish to call from.

Making an Outbound Call

There are four ways to input a number to make an outbound call. You can simply tap an entry in the Call Activity screen [13]. Alternatively, tap the keypad button [14] and:

  • Long press the “0” digit and type the country code and number.
  • Paste the full number including the country code into the input field (E.164 format).
  • Choose the country code by pressing the flag icon and type or paste the number.

With the correct number in place, tap Call [16] to place the outbound call.

Agents can create new contacts in Mobile Agent by tapping "+" in the top right of the contacts page and adding the details. Any contact that is created on Talkdesk web application or Mobile Agent will automatically be available on the other.

Note: The "Name" field is mandatory.

Editing Contacts

Agents can edit existing contacts by simply tapping on the contact, followed by Edit (pencil icon) and editing the relevant details.

Recording Calls 

In Mobile Agent for Android, agents can manually pause and resume the recordings. This is especially useful for agents that need to handle sensitive data that shouldn’t be recorded. You can find details on how to enable this feature here.

On a live call, the agent can see if the call is being recorded or not in the top right of the screen. To pause it, select "Stop Recording" on the utility bar. To resume recording, select "Record".

Call Controls

  • Ring Groups [17]

Additionally, you have the following call control options:

  • Speaker [20]
  • Keypad/DTMF [21]
  • Mute [22]
  • Hold [23]
  • Disconnect [24]

Note: When you finish a call, by default you will be placed into "After Call Work" (ACW) if your account settings determine so.

The split screen option allows you to work in two different contexts simultaneously. You can choose which contexts you want to have open, which side of the screen you want them on and you can also adjust the size of them to your preference.
