Callbar is an application that allows agents to make and receive calls via Talkdesk from any application they are working in. It works just like the existing Keypad in the main Talkdesk web application, giving your agents the power to communicate with customers in real time.
Some benefits of the Callbar include:
- Lightweight and easy to use. Talkdesk’s Callbar can be used by anyone in your organization.
- Compatible across applications. Talkdesk supports your existing workflow and ensures you always have the context you need when connecting to customers in real-time.
- Always accessible. Make and answer calls from anywhere on your desktop – no more having to comb through open tabs for your softphone.

- Select ‘Users‘ 
- Select the users you wish to add to Talkdesk Callbar Chrome App CTI  or press the ‘Add User‘ button in case these are new users

Once installed, agents can launch the Callbar while working in Salesforce, and initiate a call to one of the contacts with an associated phone number, through a single click on that contact’s profile page.
