Setting it up
To set up Twilio integration, view the screencast or follow the guide below.
To connect Twilio to myphoner, you need to do a few tasks in your Twilio account first. Log into your Twilio console and do the following:
Create a Caller ID
From the Twilio menu, choose "Phone Numbers" and either buy a number or verify one of your existing numbers with Twilio.
Adding a verified Caller ID in Twilio
Create a TwiML App
Next choose "Tools" from the same sub-menu (Phone Numbers) and click the red plus to create a new TwiML app.
Creating a new TwiML app from Phone Numbers -> Tools -> TwiML Apps
Once created, copy the TwiML apps SID to your clipboard.
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.
Edit the "Twilio Client Quickstart (Voice calls)"-function, removing line 10 from the code:
Delete the "Twilio Client Quickstart (Capability Token)"-function as we are not going to use that.
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 next to it.
Then go back to your TwiML App (Phone Numbers -> Tools -> TwiML Apps from the Twilio Menu) and paste the path into the "Request URL"-input field.
Configure the Voice function with your Caller ID and App SID
For the last step in the Twilio setup, you need to make sure you have the right Caller ID set in your Voice function, otherwise you cannot call. Go to Runtime -> Functions -> Configure and make sure the CALLER_ID and TWIML_APP_SID have the value of your verified Caller ID and TwiML App we just created.
Enable the Twilio dialler in myphoner
Go (or ask your account owner) to Manage -> Settings -> Dialling and enter your Twilio credentials. Collect the credentials from your Twilio Console Dashboard and from the TwiML App you just created.
Then go to your preferences in myphoner, and under "Dialing" chose "Twilio".
That's all it takes. The dialler will appear in 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
We depend on your feedback - both positive and negative. So please get back to us once you have tried it out and let us now if it works for you, and what you would like to see improved.
Please note that call quality depends on both the quality of your Internet connection and your provider and myphoner has no influence on that.
