Initiating Audio Calls

With Zoho SalesIQ's "Audio Call" feature, you can make and receive audio calls, just like using a traditional phone. All you need is a pair of computer speakers and a microphone or a headset attached to your computer or handset.

Benefits of Audio Calls

  1. The long, monotonous chat sessions are not needed anymore, audio call helps your operators to solve problems quickly and efficiently. This improves resolution rate and saves time and effort.
  2. With audio calls, visitors do not have to wait for hours for a single response from an operator. They can get their queries answered then and there.

Audio calls in the visitor chat window

  1. The visitor can initiate a call from the chat window and once the operator picks up the call, both will get connected via an audio call. In case the call gets disconnected, then the visitor can use the Call Again option available in the window to connect back to the operator.
  2. In case the call is missed or if the operator cancels, then the visitor gets an option in the chat window to record and send a voice message to the operator.

This is the view in the operator's portal when a visitor calls.

Audio call in operator chat window

Likewise, the operator can initiate a call from the operator window and once the visitor picks the call, both will get connected via audio call. If the call gets disconnected, they can use the Call Again option to connect back to the visitors.

This is the view in the website when an operator gives a audio call.

While enabling the audio do consider the below factors as well:
  1. This feature is supported only for Zoho SalesIQ Basic, Enterprise/professional, Zoho One and CRM Plus plans.
  2. You can make any number of calls, there are no restrictions.

    2. Firefox 22 and above
    3. Opera 18 and above
    4. Safari 11 and above
  6. Your website visitors should be using //https: connection protocol.
  7. An ongoing call cannot be transferred to another operator.
  8. If an operator joins an ongoing chat while the call is on, then the new operator cannot join the ongoing call. Also, if the call gets disconnected after the operator joins the chat, then next call cannot be initiated and call option will be disabled (group calling option is not available.)
  9. While you monitor an associate's chat you cannot make/join calls. 
  10. Operators can answer one call at a time, on picking the new call the ongoing call will get disconnected automatically.
  11. You can find the call stats on the reports module under Visitor stats, Top Operator, Operator activity, Department Usage, Visitor Details, Operators sections.
  12. You cannot change the call ringing and reconnecting time. By default, it is set as 50 secs for ringing and 30 secs for reconnecting.
  13. If you reload the Zoho SalesIQ page during the ongoing call, the audio call will get disconnected.
  14. On ending the ongoing chat, the audio call ends as well.
