The Genesys Cloud for Salesforce integration is a variant of Genesys Cloud’s contact center services inside Salesforce.

Warning: Do not run different variants of the Genesys Cloud embedded client (Genesys Cloud for Salesforce, Genesys Cloud for Zendesk, Genesys Cloud for Microsoft Teams, Genesys Cloud for Chrome, Genesys Cloud for Firefox, or Genesys Cloud Embeddable Framework) and Genesys Cloud Communicate for mobile apps simultaneously. Otherwise, you will experience unusual behavior with interaction logs, WebRTC phones, and other functionalities.

Note: Salesforce announced that Google’s decision to phase out third-party cookies in Chrome may affect the functionality of Open CTI starting in January 2024. Genesys is aware of this issue and is actively working on solutions to mitigate the impact of this change. Customers using the Genesys Cloud for Salesforce CTI integration will not be negatively affected by this change. For more information about Genesys Cloud’s solutions to third-party cookies, see Alternatives to third-party cookies for Genesys Cloud embedded clients.
