In this unit you will learn:

  • How Fastcall stores the details of inbound and outbound calls
  • How to view call details in a Salesforce task record
  • What information is available about inbound and outbound calls via Salesforce task records

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

Fastcall and tasks

Fastcall stores a lot of details about a call. Although Fastcall stores these details on specialized records called ‘Call records’, the most important details are copied to a task record. Fastcall will create one task record per call.

Your administrator may have disabled storing call details as task records. If this is the case, you should go straight to learning about call records here.

Opening tasks from the Fastcall widget

You can open a task as normal in Salesforce. You can also get to the task for a call via the Fastcall widget:

1. Open the ‘Phone’ tab of the widget

2. Click on any call

3. Click on ‘View Task or Call Log’

 

Fastcall task – Details

This section of the Fastcall Task Layout shows the most important details about a call.

This unit assumes your administrator has set up task records to use the ‘FastCall Task Layout’ page layout provided in the Fastcall app. If another layout is in use, different information will appear on the task record.

 

Call From: The telephone number that made the call

Call To: The telephone number to which the call was made

Call Type: Whether the call is inbound or outbound

Call Duration: How long the call lasted, in seconds

Call Notes: Notes that were added to the call using the Fastcall widget

Call Result: The result of the call as set in the Fastcall widget

Call Recording: A link to the recording of the call. The actual recording is stored in Twilio, not Salesforce. You can learn more about call recordings here.

Call Object Identifier: A unique identifier for the call as used by Twilio.

Fastcall Logs

This section of the Fastcall Task Layout links to other records in Salesforce which store more details about a call.

This unit assumes your administrator has set up task records to use the ‘Fastcall Task Layout’ page layout provided in the FastCall app. If another layout is in use, different information will appear on the task record.

Call: A link to the call record, which stores even more details about the call. You can learn more about call records here.

Call Log: A link to the connection record, which stores even more details about how the call was set up.

Voicemail Log: A link to the voicemail log record, which stores details about any voicemails.

SMS Message: A link to the SMS log record, which stores details about an SMS message.

 

You can now continue with the other units in the Fastcall Basics module.
