Outbound Calls through RingCentral

INTRODUCTION

HappyFox allows your staff to make outbound calls through Ringcentral from within the HappyFox app. This article takes you through the the entire lifecycle of an outbound call, starting from call initiation upto ticket creation. 

Call recordings from RingCentral can be added as a new ticket or appended to an existing ticket. Call recordings and additional meta-information about the call are captured on the ticket. 

This feature is available on Fantastic, Enterprise and Enterprise Plus plans.

  1. Create Ticket will create a new ticket automatically on a single click and open up the ticket detail page with a default message. This default message will get overridden with the call recording once the call is done.

  2. Private Notes will also open up by default so that you can take notes while you are on call.

Scenario 2: OutBound Call to existing contact

Outbound calls to an existing contact can be initiated in two ways.

  1. Using the dialer - Use the search bar in dial pad to search for an existing contact using their name, phone number or email ID.

  2. Click to call - Phone number within HappyFox gets enabled as click to call. This means that when you are in contact information page or ticket detail page, clicking on any phone number initiates a RingCentral call by prefilling the number in the dial pad. 

NOTE: You could also dial an existing number and choose a contact among multiple contacts with the same number. That aside, the remaining portion of the workflow will remain the same.

  1. The number of contacts with matching phone number will be displayed on the top left portion as shown below.

  2. If there is just one contact with matching phone number, contact’s name, phone number and email are displayed.
