Installing and Configuring Agent Desktop with Salesforce Console

Complete the procedures on this page to install and configure Agent Desktop in Salesforce Console.

Installing Agent Desktop in Salesforce

  1. Open the following URL to install the latest Genesys Gplus Adapter for Salesforce package (this package is used for both the Agent Desktop and the Gplus Adapter) in Salesforce: https://login.salesforce.com/packaging/installPackage.apexp?p0=04to0000000C3VD
    If you're not logged in, Salesforce prompts for your username and password.
  2. Now you should see the Install Genesys Gplus Adapter for Salesforce page. Select an installation type. Generally, you should select Grant access to all users, but if you want to limit access to Agent Desktop to specific profiles, then you can choose Install for Specific Profiles .... Click Install.


  3. When you see the "Installation Complete!" message, click Done.


    You should be redirected to the Installed Packages page, with "Genesys Gplus for Salesforce" included in the list.

Configuring Salesforce for Agent Desktop

Complete this procedure to define your call center in Salesforce. The call center was created when you installed the Gplus Adapter for Salesforce package as part of Installing Agent Desktop in Salesforce.

If no CRM is specified, screen pop and other integration features will be inactive.
  1. If you haven't already, login to Salesforce and go to Setup > Build > Customize > Call Center > Call Centers. Or, you can search for "Call Centers" in the Search All Setup field and select the "Call Centers" result. You should see the Introducing Salesforce CRM Call Center page. Note: You must have administrator privileges.
  2. You can select Don't show me this page again if you want to hide the page in the future, and click Continue.
  3. On the All Call Centers page, click Edit next to the Genesys Gplus for Salesforce entry.
  4. In the CTI Adapter URL field, replace the text with the following URL:
    You'll need to change GWS_HOST:GWS_PORT to the correct host and port provided by Genesys. For example:
    If you're enabling single sign-on in the adapter, add the authType=saml parameter to the CTI Adapter URL. For example:
  5. You might also want to adjust Softphone Height and Softphone Width to larger numbers (in pixels) so that Agent Desktop displays at an adequate size by default.
    You should leave the other options at their default values so Agent Desktop works correctly in Salesforce.


  6. Click Save.
  7. Click Manage Call Center Users and then click Add users.


  8. On the Search for New Users page, you can enter search criteria to find users. Select the ones you want to be able to use Agent Desktop and click Add to Call Center.


    Your selected users are added to the list. You can remove a user on this page at any time.


  9. To access Agent Desktop in Salesforce Console, click the Workspace button in the bottom right corner.

Configuring the Whitelist Domain for your Salesforce Console

Complete this procedure to add the Genesys domain to the whitelist domains for your Salesforce Console. You need to complete this procedure to allow your users to access Agent Desktop in Salesforce Console in a separate browser window.

  1. If you haven't already, login to Salesforce and go to App Setup > Create > Apps and select your console app — "Sample Console" in the image below:

  2. Click Edit. In Whitelist Domains, add the host and port provided by Genesys in Step 4 of Configuring Salesforce for Agent Desktop. For example:
  3. Click Save.

Configuring Screen Pops in Salesforce

When an agent receives an external call, Agent Desktop can initiate a screen pop that causes Salesforce to show an appropriate record for the caller. To set up this functionality in Salesforce, login and go to Setup > Customize > Call Center > SoftPhone Layouts to create a SoftPhone Layout. Check out the Salesforce documentation for details about configuration.

In general, there are a couple of things to consider when you set up a SoftPhone Layout for the Agent Desktop:

  • Agent Desktop ignores the SoftPhone Layout settings that control call-related fields. Instead, the Agent Desktop gets this information from Toast and Case Data configured in your Genesys environment.
  • Make sure you configure the Screen Pop Settings in the "CTI 2.0 or Higher Settings" section. These settings control whether the screen pop opens in a new window, tab, or Visualforce page.
