Talkdesk Phone Users

In the Phone Admin app of the Talkdesk Phone™ system, you’ll find the Users section. Here, you’re able to see your listed users, create new ones, and edit existing profiles.


Users List


  1. To access the Phone Admin app, select the second icon on the leftmost side panel [1].
  2. On the Users tab [2] you will find the users of your account. If there are no registered users, you can click on the Create user button [3] to get started. 

The users list displays each user’s:

  • “Name”.
  • “Email”.
  • “Role”: “Phone User” or “Phone Admin” in case of Phone only users, reflecting their access permissions to the Phone and Phone Admin apps, or their CC (Contact Center) roles (ex.: “CC Agent”; “CC Supervisor”; “CC Administrator”; or other personalized CC roles, also preceded by “CC”).
  • “Status”: “Active”, “Inactive”, or "Pending".

The search bar [4] can be used to find individual users by name or email. The more options “...” button [5] reveals a drop-down menu with other features, which will be explained in the course of this article. 


Creating New Users

To create a new user, click on the Create User button.


You will have to fill in each field and provide the following pieces of information about the user:

  • “First name” [1]
  • “Last name” [2]
  • “Email” [3]
  • “Role” [4], which you should select from the drop-down menu. 
  • At this stage, you can also change the user’s “Status” [5] from “Active” to “Inactive”.
  • Click on the Create button [6] to proceed to the new user’s profile page.


  • Phone Users can be fully managed in the Phone Admin app. However, as described above regarding the “Role” column, for users that were extended from CC, Admins will only be able to manage their Phone settings (see below). To manage or delete CC users, admins should use Talkdesk Classic/Main.
  • We can create users in bulk, by request. For that purpose, please contact Support with the list of users in accordance with the attached template (users_csv_example.csv). Please note that all fields are mandatory.

From the "Users" list, you can click on any user’s name to be taken to the corresponding profile page. Here, you will find the same information you can find on the "Users" list.

In this page, you can alter most of the information provided upon user creation:
