Configuration > Integrations

Integrations connect a CRM or application with the Telephone system. Incoming or outgoing telephone numbers are matched to any contact records in a CRM to present contact information including contact name, company or account name and additional notes.

Horizon Integrator users can integrate with Google Contacts and Outlook Contacts. Horizon Integrator CRM users can integrate with a large list of various business CRM applications and address books.

The integration provides address book searching, incoming call preview information, manual and automatic contact popping and in many cases, activity logging.


Setup CRM Integration

Select "(Add new)" to integrate with a business CRM application or address book.

Integrations marked with a star include the option to "Add Contact" information directly into the address book from the Preview Window, Call Toolbar or Call History (including the Recent Calls list).

Configuration settings integrations add new

NOTE: Only "Standard" integrations are displayed in the list.

Integrator CRM license level will offer all Standard integrations.

Integrator license level will be able to see the full list of integrations but will only be able to select from a limited group of integrations. Any other integration selected will notify 'Your current license does not support this integration'.

Other applications or "Controlled" integrations require an unlock code. Please contact support for assistance.

Automatic Popping

Any integration can individually be configured to automatically pop matching contact entries on incoming calls, either during ringing (as soon as the call is presented) or when connected (after answering the call).

automatic popping setting

Manual contact popping is still available to other integrations. For example, if only 1 out of 4 configured integrations is set to pop automatically, contacts found in any of the other 3 integrations can be manually opened using the associated icon.

Call Activity Logging

For compatible integrations, call activity events can be written directly into the business CRM application transaction logs either manually by a button press, or automatically at the end of a call.

call activity logging

From Preview Window:                   From Call History / Recent Calls:

call activity log preview window call history

Example activity log to Salesforce:

activity log salesforce

If the same phone number is used against multiple records within the same integration, then the screen below will appear. This will be at the end of the call if Call Activity Logging is set to automatic, or when the CRM button on the Preview Window is pressed when Call Activity Logging is set to manual (The Call Activity Logging button will appear on the Preview Window once the contact is selected).
