If you need to get specific details for your organization on the rollout plan, please refer to your Customer Success Manager or contact Talkdesk Support.

What enhancements will this version bring?

  • Salesforce Relate-To - It’s now possible to relate an inbound or outbound call to Salesforce Accounts, Contacts, Leads, Cases, Opportunities directly on Salesforce in Lightning experience. The configuration allows defining which and how objects can be related to the call and even automate the relation if only a 1-1 relation exists. The search functionality and an intelligent algorithm helps the agent select the correct entity to relate.
  • Salesforce Dialer[Early Access - Select availability; please inquire] - This feature provides the ability to automatically dial down a list of Salesforce records (Contacts, Cases, Accounts, etc.). During the list dialing, the agent will be able to pause and resume the call list at any time or make an explicit click to call to any phone number on the list when paused or stopped. This automatic dialer has awareness of the “Do Not Call '' Salesforce field in contacts so that it will not make undesired calls. Other features such as delay between calls and action on dial can also be defined. Please note that this feature is being released as part of an Early Access Program. To learn more, reach out to your sales rep or Customer Success Manager.
