Configure caller ID


Note: This article applies to PureCloud Embeddable Framework, PureCloud for Chrome, PureCloud for Firefox, PureCloud for Salesforce, and PureCloud for Zendesk.

The integrations allow users to set caller ID names and phone numbers for outbound calls. Agents can input this information each time they make a call. Or, for consistent caller ID usage across the organization, administrators can globally configure this information in their PureCloud organization.

Note: Global configuration overrides any caller ID name or address that agents input in the client.

To use the caller ID functionality, administrators must configure items both in the integration and in PureCloud.

  1. Enable caller ID in the integration. 
  2. Configure caller ID information in PureCloud. 
    1. In PureCloud, click Admin.
    2. Under Telephony, click Trunks.
    3. Click an external trunk. Either enable agent input or global configuration.
      • Agent input
        1. Under Calling, set Address Override Method and Name Override Method to Unassigned DID.

        Any name and number that agents input in the client appear to recipients of outbound calls. 

        Note: The integration does not check that that phone numbers are in a particular format or are valid.

      • Global configuration
        1. In the Address box under Calling, enter a phone number that you want to appear as the caller ID number to recipients of all outbound calls.
        2. In the Name box under Calling, enter a name that you want to appear as the caller ID name to recipients of all outbound calls.
        3. Set Address Override Method and Name Override Method to Always.

        The Address and Name that you input in PureCloud overrides any name and number that agents input in the client.

        Note: The value returned for Name depends on recipient’s carrier. For more information, see External trunk settings.

    4. Click Save External Trunk.
