This unit is about the Salesforce custom record type ‘call’. If you’re looking for information about ‘call recordings’ as in the audio recording of a call, please go to the unit on call recordings.
In this unit you will learn:
- How Fastcall stores the details of inbound and outbound calls
- How to view call details in a call record
- What information is available about inbound and outbound calls via call records
This unit assumes you have completed the previous units in the Fastcall Basics module.
Fastcall and call records
Fastcall stores a lot of details about a call. It stores them on a set of Salesforce records, the most important one named ‘Call’, and the key details are copied to a ‘Task’ record. Fastcall will create one call record and one task record per call.
This Unit assumes your Administrator has kept the default setup for Fastcall which creates both task and call records. They may have turned off the creation of task records, and/or made modifications to make it easier for you to access call records.
You can open the call record from the related task record by clicking on the ‘Call’ under ‘Fastcall Logs’.
