Setup Instructions

1. To set up the Zadarma PBX with Zoho, the following requirements need to be met:

  • You should be using Zoho Standard, Professional, Enterprise, Ultimate or Trial Editions. The integration with the Free Editions is unavailable.
  • Navigate to ZohoCRM -> Settings -> Telephony -> click on "Enable PhoneBridge". If its shown.
  • You need to have an activated Zadarma PBX that has been properly set up. Required settings: extension numbers should be created, from 1 to 50 (one for each employee). If needed, call recording (Call recording to Cloud) should be activated under “extension number settings”. Additionally, the incoming calls scenario should be set to the default “without pushing” (in “My PBX” under “Incoming calls and IVR”).
  • The extension numbers should either be configured to equipment for receiving and making calls (Softphone/IP-phone) or call forwarding to another number should be enabled.

2. In your Zadarma Personal account, go to “Settings” - “API and integrations”, choose Zoho and select “Enable”

On the next page, log in to your Zoho account.

Click “Accept” to accept the user access request to Zoho.

On the integration settings page, allocate the internal PBX numbers to Zoho users and press “Save”.

Zadarma virtual PBX integration with Zoho is completed.

3. To make an outbound call from ZOHO just click on the number and the button “Call”.

At the time of an incoming or outgoing call, a notification pops up in the right bottom corner of the page. If the phone number has been previously saved in Zoho, the pop-up notification will display the caller’s contact details. If the phone number has not been saved before, you will see a button for creating a new contact.

During the call, the pop-up notification displays the name of the person you are talking to, his or her personal manager, the duration of the call and a comments section.

After the call has been completed, a notification displays the total duration of the call and offers several follow-up options: Create a Call, Create an Event or Create a Task.

1. Call. If your client has requested a callback at a later time, in the pop-up notification window, press “Call”, enter a call subject, and call date and time, and then press “Done”. At the set time, Zoho will notify you with an alert that it is time to make the call.

2. Event. You can create an event based on the call, add call participants and choose the alert time.

3. Task. You can create a task based on the call with your client.
