  4. Why don’t I see any new tab/window opening for incoming calls?
    You must make sure that pop-ups are not blocked by browser settings or some other pop-up blocker software installed on your desktop.
  5. Can I use the same adapter across multiple Salesforce.com instances (or “orgs”)?
    You can use the same adapter across as many orgs as you want as long as the user is not logged into two or more orgs simultaneously. Simultaneous logins are not supported.
  6. Can I use same adapter across multiple browser types (IE and Firefox)?
    Same adapter can be used across as many browsers as you want as long as the user is not logged into two or more browser types simultaneously. This means that the user cannot be logged into salesforce.com on Internet Explorer and Firefox at the same time. Simultaneous logins are not supported.
  7. Why is my Softphone not visible for some profiles? Does it require some special permission?
    No, Softphone does not require special permissions and it should work for all out of the box profiles. It is possible that you have added some custom component to the layouts and the JavaScript in those components is interfering with the Softphone layer. To solve this remove all customization that have been applied to the sidebar component temporarily and once you see the Softphone UI rendered, add the customization one by one so you can pin point which bit is creating the issue. Once you find the component causing the problem, contact the developer of that component to fix the issue.
  8. What should I do if the incoming number does not match any record, the pop up page gives “Insufficient Privileges”?
    Add access to the VisualForce page “CreateNewObjectANI” to all profiles/ user in the org.
  9. Why are my users receiving a “Do you want to view only the webpage content that was delivered securely” Security Warning in Internet Explorer when they use the AT&T Office@Hand Salesforce.com application?
    This warning is a “Mixed Content Warning”. It indicates that you are accessing Salesforce.com over HTTPS, but communicating with the CTI adapter over HTTP.
  10. Where can I download the AT&T Office@Hand Salesforce App installer?
    You can download the AT&T Office@Hand Salesforce App installer from your online account.
