This setup guide is aimed at Salesforce administrators setting up Fastcall in their org:

  • Fastcall Setup – This module will take you through installing and setting up Fastcall to enable testing. There is a 7-day free trial in a Salesforce production org. There are no limits in a sandbox or developer org.
  • Install, initial setup and testing should take about 60 minutes.
  • Our Test Drive is a quick and easy way to test the application without installation.
  • After your initial testing, further details on specific capabilities and options are found under the Administrator Guide

When setting up Fastcall you’ll probably want to go through the following high-level checklist. You can search for more information on these items in these training resources:

Testing and evaluating Fastcall

  1. I used the Fastcall ‘test drive’ in the AppExchange to test dialing outbound calls, receiving inbound calls, and logging the call details in Salesforce
  2. I have outlined my requirements and have shared these with Fastcall to confirm compatibility
  3. I reviewed and understand how Twilio connects to Fastcall.

Finalizing Fastcall install

  1. I have go-ahead from my key users and decision makers to use Fastcall.
  2. I have a means of paying for Fastcall (credit card with sufficient balance)
  3. I have bought sufficient Fastcall licenses for my users
  4. I have set up my own Twilio account
  5. I have decided whether I want to use Call Records or Task Records for recording call details, and configured the Contact, Account and Lead page layouts accordingly

Provisioning users

  1. I have allocated Fastcall licenses to my users
  2. I have provisioned and verified phone numbers for my users, and done any other necessary configuration (voicemails, ACD groups, etc)
  3. I have established a process for users to report problems, request configuration changes and similar
  4. I have given my users training on how to use Fastcall. This training was specific to their jobs.
