Appendix A: Setting up Click-to-Dial Functionality

Virtual Contact Center offers Click-to-Dial API, which allows you to click hyperlinked phone numbers in CRM records to initiate outbound calls from the native NetSuite interface. This eliminates the need to enter an outbound phone number in the Agent Console Control Panel.  The typical usage of Click-To-Dial is to create clickable hyperlink on CRM record to dial out on corresponding customer phone number.

Setting up a NetSuite account to use Click-to-Dial functionality requires you to:

  1. Enable NetSuite Web and Telephony integration
