Introduction

Ordering sip trunks


Web Callback feature is a javascript widget that will allow visitors to request an immediate call directly available from your website. This is commonly known as click to call. In order to make calls from the PBX, you will need to order a SIP trunk plan including the number of channels required. Please, note that the number of channels determines the number of simultaneous calls for the trunk. To order, firstly, select the 'Order Services' tab, click on 'SIP trunks' from the left menu and add a new trunk. Once added, enter a descriptive name and its number of channels. Finally, agree to the service term and submit the order, as shown in the image below.

The settings window will pop up next prompting you to enter a descriptive name for the object and personalise the widget colours by entering any colour codes. The colour codes can be found on this link. Please note that entering the colour codes is an optional functionality. If you choose not to add custom codes, the object colours will be set using the default colours displayed. In the 'widget location' field, select the position of the VoIP icon on your website.

Following that, click on the call plan and caller ID dropdowns to choose the SIP trunk call plan previously ordered and the caller ID respectively. The caller ID defines the number that will be displayed for the visitor who requested the callback. Below the caller ID, click on 'Add country' to allow from which countries telephone numbers can be entered to request a callback from the website. Otherwise, calls will not be placed.

 

Lastly, similar to the time conditions object, you can determine when the widget will be available on the website. To configure, click on the "Add time condition group" button located under the operating hours, then click the green plus icon to add the required metrics. On clicking the plus icon, you can add hours, day of the week, date and month conditions. Don't forget to define the timezone that the time conditions should match.

 

Once the web callback object has been configured, copy the javascript code to paste later on your website source code by hitting the green button "Copy Javascript". Then, press the button save and apply the configuration.
