Configure caller ID

Note: This article applies to Genesys Cloud Embeddable Framework, Genesys Cloud for Chrome, Genesys Cloud for Firefox, Genesys Cloud for Salesforce, and Genesys Cloud 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 Genesys Cloud 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 Genesys Cloud.

  1. Enable caller ID in the integration. 
  2. Configure caller ID information in Genesys Cloud. 
    1. In Genesys Cloud, click Admin.
    2. Under Telephony, click Trunks.
    3. Select the trunk on which you want to configure caller ID information.
    4. Under the Calling section, use the Prioritized Caller Selection list to select and prioritize the locations you want to use to build your caller ID information. For more information about prioritized caller selection, see Use the Prioritized Caller Selection feature to configure caller ID information.
    5. If you select Call Source (Queue/Campaign/User DID) as a location, use the Suppress User Name list to configure how you want to handle the display of the user name information.
    6. Click Save External Trunk.
