Setting it up
To connect Twilio to myphoner, you must first do a few tasks in your Twilio account. Log into your Twilio console and do the following:
Pro Tip: You can use the Search bar in Twilio (top right) to jump to any section within your Twilio account; just type in where you want to go.
Create a Caller ID
You'll need to add a phone number in Twilio if you don't have one; if not, go to Phone Numbers to buy one or Verified Caller IDs to add a number you own.
Adding a verified Caller ID in Twilio
Create a TwiML App
Next is to add a TwiML App; you can go to the Voice section, and under Manage, click TwiML apps.
Click Create New TwiML App, give it a name & click Create
Once created, copy the TwiML app SID to your clipboard or save it on a notepad.
Create a Voice function
Now find "Runtime" from the Twilio menu and choose "Functions". Then click the red plus to create a new function, select "Twilio Client Quickstart" from the templates and enter your TwiML App SID and Call ID that you just created.
You'll now need to create a new Function within Twilio; please note that you'll need to use Functions (Classic).
Click the blue + button to add a new function and select Twilio Client Quickstart. Input the TWIML_APP_SID & Caller_ID (or purchased number) & click Create.
Edit the "Twilio Client Quickstart (Voice calls)"-function, removing line 10 from the code:
Delete the Twilio Client Quickstart (Capability Token), as this is unnecessary. Simply click on it & select Delete this Function.
Link the Voice function to your TwiML App
Click on the Twilio Client Quickstart (Voice calls) function, and copy the Path by clicking the clipboard icon.
Go back to your TwiML App and paste the path into the "Request URL"-input field.
Configure the Voice function with your Caller ID and App SID
The last step in Twilio is to ensure the Caller ID is set in your Voice function. Go to Functions (Classic) & click Configure.
Add the Caller_ID & TWIML_APP_SID that you created previously and click Save.
Add Twilio to Myphoner
Go (or ask your account owner) to Manage -> Settings -> Dialler, select Twilio & enter in:
Twilio account sid
Twilio auth token
Twilio twiml app sid
Then click Save.
The last step is to enable Twilio on your user profile. To do so, go to Preferences > Dialling, under Dialler, select Twilio & click Update.
That's all it takes. The dialler will appear at the bottom of your window when looking at a lead, and you can dial by clicking the phone number of the lead or the phone icon in the dialler (the latter will call the first phone number of the lead).
Give us your feedback.
