Service Cloud Voice

Announcing Service Cloud Voice: Unifying Voice Calls, Digital Channels and CRM Data in Real-time, for the First Time


voiceService Cloud Voice is a brand new product that natively integrates intelligent telephony into Salesforce for a seamless agent experience. Agents can talk with your customers using an intuitive softphone that combines the power of Amazon Connect, including real-time call transcription. Bring voice calls and your digital channels together so your support agents can help customers at the right time using the channel that customers prefer.

Where: This change applies to Lightning Experience in the Enterprise, Performance, and Unlimited editions. Service Cloud Voice is available for an additional cost as an add-on license.

Who: Users with the “Customize Application” permission can enable Service Cloud Voice. Users with the Contact Center Admin permission set can create and manage the contact center. Users with the Contact Center Agent permission set can access the contact center and make and receive calls.

Why: Sometimes it’s just easier to talk to someone on the phone. Despite the variety of channels, customers prefer to talk directly to a knowledgeable service agent who can quickly solve their problem. Voice makes it easier for agents to answer and make calls, track customer information, and resolve customer issues—all within the Service Console.

Service Cloud Voice lets you quickly spin up a contact center so your agents can get to work helping customers. When you create your contact center, Salesforce builds an Amazon Connect instance for you from scratch.

GOTCHAS: 3 Settings That Could Cause Problems

Guest User Security Policy


In the Summer ’20 release, Salesforce is enabling the following three security policies. We believe these settings could cause problems because they now restrict access to @AuraEnabled apex methods for Guest Users, Portal Users, and Authenticated Users based on their user profile settings.

 Secure guest user record access.
To access this setting, from Setup enter Sharing Settings in the Quick Find box. Select Sharing Settings.

 Assign new records created by guest users to the default owner.
To access this setting, from Setup enter Communities Settings in the Quick Find box. Select Communities Settings.

 Assign new records created by the Salesforce Sites guest users to a default owner in the org.
To access this setting, from Setup enter Sites in the Quick Find box. Select Sites.
