Disable Custom Call Logging

When custom call logging is disabled, calls will still be logged when dispositioned, but call data logged by the communication panel will not appear in separated, reportable fields.

  1. In Salesforce, navigate to Setup > Call Centers and click Edit on the call center: 8x8 Virtual Office Integration - Next Generation_Lightning.
  2. Scroll down to Other Options and enter false (lower case only) into the field: Call Log Custom Fields Enabled.
  3. Click Save.
  4. Users must log out of Salesforce and then log back in to fully enable the change.
  5. In the communication panel, each user must navigate to Menu > Settings > Call Outcome Source > Salesforce option and set this option to the OFF (gray) position. See below.
Note-Icon.png Note: This will force the use of Call Results, which is a built-in default configuration for call disposition. It is configured in the Salesforce call center, just above the Call Log Custom Fields Enabled field you adjusted in step 2 above.


Verify and Correct Custom Call Log Configuration
