Click to Dial: Top Tasks
Click to Dial is a feature of the customer contact process. Phone communication to customers and employees is initiated with a click of the mouse, leveraging your customer contact information and the application context. The Click to Dial feature uses Oracle WebLogic Communication Services, OWLCS, to enable communications. Applications that provide the Click to Dial functionality do so primarily through contextual actions in the application.
Click to Dial integrates with your telephony environment and must be manually enabled in your deployment. This topic highlights what is required to set up the Click to Dial feature.
