Go Communicator supports several methods of dialing from applications.
Many applications can be enabled to allow dialing directly from within the application.
Focus dialing will automatically detect fields that contain dial-able numbers and will present a click-to-dial option to the right of the field.
If the application field contains more than one potential telephone number, a drop-down is displayed when you hover over the click-to-dial icon, allowing you to select which number to dial.
Once you have enabled TAPI and configured your TAPI compatible CRM application, you will be able to dial out telephone numbers directly from the CRM application.
Screen popping allows a CRM contact record associated with an inbound caller’s number to be opened simply by clicking an icon shown in the preview window.
This can be configured to pop automatically if preferred.
The Address Book provides an easy way to create contacts.
Users can search for existing contacts or create new ones easily while on the telephone. The Address book is extended to include CRM contacts when integration is used.

Users can make calls directly from the Call History window.
