How Can We Help?

Unit – Fastcall Connection to Twilio

This unit will take you through connecting your Fastcall app to your own Twilio account.

This unit assumes you have completed the previous units in the Fastcall Setup module.

Introduction

When you install Fastcall during your free 7-day trial in a paid Salesforce org we’ll set you up with a connection to our Twilio account and a small amount of credit so you can test Fastcall easily. When you’ve completed the trial and want to use Fastcall for real, Fastcall will activate this Twilio sub-account.

(When testing in a sandbox or dev org you will need to contact us for the Twilio account.)

1. Open the ‘Connect with Twilio’ settings tab

connect Fastcall to Twilio

In the Fastcall settings menu, go to Admin Settings > VOIP Settings > Connect With Twilio.

2. Twilio is managed entirely in Fastcall (mostly)

Phones are provisioned in Fastcall; numbers verified. All your call reports will be in Salesforce. There are a few advanced settings we may need to edit in Twilio directly, for example, international dialing rights.

Using an existing Twilio account

Fastcall does offer the option to connect to an existing Twilio account. Please contact us to discuss.

OK, you are finished with this module. Fastcall is installed, you made a test call, quickly looked at the page layouts, and tested inbound call routing. No worries. We have many more resources for you. The next modules are organized under Fastcall Administrative Guide cover our capabilities in depth.
