  5. Once you answer the call on Fuze, it will dial the respective Contact, Customer, Lead or Distributor. (That is, the call will first get established to Fuze and on approval will get connected with the end user)

Note: If the Auto Answer toggle is enabled in the Settings (mentioned in step 7), then the call is directly placed on your Desktop/Laptop without you having to answer.

Call Log Creation

After the call is ended, a Call Log gets created automatically for the relevant Customer, Contact, Lead or Distributor in Apptivo.

  3. Here, you can see a list of call logs.

Receiving Calls from an Unknown Number

When fuze receives a call from an unknown number (new number), a Contact, as well as a Call Log will automatically be created in Apptivo Contacts App.

Also, when you are making calls directly from Fuze and if the contacts are not in Apptivo Contacts App, a contact record is created automatically and a call log is generated.

To Summarize

  • When you make a call to an existing contact in the database, Call Log is recorded in the corresponding application.
  • When you make a call and the number is registered in more than one application within the Apptivo CRM App, then Call Log will be associated with all the corresponding objects.
