Call Log and Follow-Up

Call Log
When your call ends, Virtual Office for Salesforce automatically creates a call log to help you organize your call details. If your call is unassigned, you will be moved to the Assign tab to assign your call to a new or existing contact.

If your call is assigned, you will be moved to the Notes page where you can add additional information regarding the call.


After you have assigned your call to a contact and have been moved to the Notes page, you can schedule a follow up task. Once the task is set, you can find it under the My Tasks section in your home page.
