Call Lists with Slate Voice

Slate Voice provides an integrated telecommunications capability that can be used to place calls directly from a record, call list, or anywhere phone numbers appear in Slate.

Calling campaigns using Slate Voice work just like traditional versions, but Slate Voice can make the calls and record the interactions directly within Slate, without the need for external processes or custom interactions.

Creating the Call Form

  1. Select Forms on the top navigation bar.
  2. Select New Form.
  3. Give the form a name in the Page Title field.
  4. Set the Status to Confirmed/Active.
  5. Select Save.
  6. Edit the form to remove the standard fields and add an interaction selector to record the outcome of the call.

Creating the Call List

  1. Select Queries / Reports on the top navigation bar.
  2. Select New Query.

Important

Laws and regulations regarding the recording of telephone conversations can vary by region. Make sure that you comply with all regulations, and always request permission from the called person before recording the conversation.

When the call is completed, an interaction is placed on the timeline of the person's record.
