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.

Follow-Up
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.
