Serving Call Enquiries

Your website visitors and customers can call you using the CINNOX Widget's Tag Directory, Staff Directory, or click-to-action button. They can also reach you through the weblinks and QR codes you share or post in marketing campaigns and advertisements or by dialling toll-free or local virtual numbers.

You can answer and attend to these calls as enquiries on your CINNOX service. CINNOX lets you switch between calls and chat, depending on the support and response needed from your business support operations. You can also switch between rooms and reply to messages from your Space group chats.

 

Browser Permissions for Microphone and Camera

When making or answering voice and video calls using CINNOX, your browser needs to access your device's microphone and camera.

Ensure your browser's camera and microphone permissions for the CINNOX Dashboard site or client-side pages (i.e., the pages with the CINNOX web widget or web view) are set to Allow. For more information, refer to the Microphone and Camera Permissions for Web Browsers section of this Guide.
