Managing InsideSales PowerDialer Users

This article covers how to update and add users and layouts within the InsideSales system.

Manage Users

Admins and managers for the InsideSales system are tasked to manage and handle users. This article gives insights and instructions on how to manage those users through actions such as updating and adding users and updating layouts from Salesforce.

The Manage Users page allows administrators to configure individual reps, add additional reps, or perform other administrative actions around reps. The Manage users page is designed for administrators or managers, and is not intended for use by individual sales reps.

Adding Users

Users can be quickly added to the InsideSales product. Only Salesforce users can be added to the InsideSales system – all users must have a Salesforce license.

Select the users you want to activate with Salesforce by checking the box next to the applicable user names and clicking the Add Users button at the bottom of the page. All reps that are added will be automatically assigned a PowerDialer license. If your Salesforce organization has thousands of users, it may be necessary to use the employee sorting and filtering to find the appropriate users.

To Add New Users

  1. Click the InsideSales tab
  2. Click Manage Users
  3. Click the Add New Users button
  4. Search for and check the desired users
  5. Click Add Users

User Settings

This sections provides descriptions of the settings you will encounter in the processes above.

  • First Name and Last Name – Displays the first name of the rep, as entered in the User object in Salesforce. This value cannot be changed through InsideSales and is only provided for convenience.
  • Click-to-Call Caller-ID – Sets the default Caller-ID that will be used for all outbound calls that a rep places. From here you can set the default Caller-ID for your reps.
    NOTE – If the Can Change Caller-ID setting is enabled through permission groups, reps can change their Caller-ID themselves and override this setting.
  • Permission Group – Sets which permission group an individual is assigned to. This controls which InsideSales links and features a rep has access to.
  • Country & International Dialing – Sets which country a rep is located in. This is used by the InsideSales system to know which dialer server is closest to the user, and will route calls thru that dial server.
    International Dialing allows an individual rep to place calls to phone numbers located outside of the United States. This setting must be enabled to place calls to or from international locations. If you check the box for International Dialing, you MUST enter a country in the country field.
    NOTE – Contact InsideSales Support to be begin using international dialing. By default, you are set to only use the US dialer server regardless of the country selected in this field.
  • Sales Role / Target Market – The Sales Role sets the type of user the rep is. There is no impact to permissions based on this field’s selection.
    The Target Market sets the market that an individual rep focuses on.
    The information on both of these fields is used to inform the Neuralytics platform and performance. The fields have no bearing on Salesforce or InsideSales permissions.
  • Minimum Record Time – Sets the minimum amount of time a call must be for a call recording to be kept. The call recording starts immediately when the call is placed or received, but is discarded once the call ends if it does not reach the minimum record time. Set in seconds.
  • Inbound Call Restrictions – Restricts inbound calls a rep can receive based on the area-code of the inbound caller. Reps can only receive inbound calls from area codes contained within the selected area code groups.
