Our Chrome Extension powers some of the most efficiency-boosting features within smrtPhone.
Note: You may have to restart Chrome the first time you try to use the new extension or when it is updated.
Click-to-Call and Text from Podio
With the Chrome Extension, the call buttons in your Contacts App within your Podio CRM system will convert to say "▶️ Call | Send Text."
All it takes is one click to initiate a call - no complicated workarounds. One click and the Chrome Extension Dialer automatically dial the contact phone number.
When you click "Send Text" a pop-up will appear and allow you to create and send your message from the same screen.
Call from Any Tab
You can initiate calls and texts from any browser tab, whether you are in smrtPhone or anywhere else on the internet. Simply click the smrtPhone triangle icon from your Chrome Extension toolbar. The dialer box will drop down, just like it does within the smrtPhone Web App, perfectly synced with your Podio contacts and ready for you to select a contact and make a call or send a text.
Stop Chasing Tabs
Our favorite part of the Chrome Extension is the ability to effortlessly answer incoming calls. Instead of having to hunt for your ringing smrtPhone tab, when you have the Chrome Extension pinned, the smrtPhone icon in your toolbar will blink green and a small Caller ID badge will appear. You can decide whether to answer, ignore, or reject the call without leaving the webpage you’re viewing.
Enter Call Notes
When using the Chrome Extension Dialer while on any webpage, you'll be able to enter your call notes in real-time. All call notes are automatically synced to your Podio CRM, available immediately.
See and Return Recent Calls
Within the Chrome Extension there is a tab recent calls. When you select it, a list of your most recent calls - and indication if they were inbound or outbound - will appear. Click on any recent call to initiate a new call to the contact.
Customize Your Settings
When you first setup the new smrtPhone Chrome Extension, you should explore the options under the Settings tab. The most important option is to select where you want your click-to-call to open. Do you want it to pop open the Extension over the page you’re on? Or do you want it to pop open a smrtPhone tab and dial from there?
Dialer Notifications Synced Across All Platforms
The smrtPhone dialers available in the Web App, Mobile App, and Chrome Extension are all synced. Call notifications and missed calls are updated based on your actions from any individual dialer. (Coming soon: synced recent calls).
Please note: Setting the Chrome Extension "Unavailable" only does so for the Extension itself. The Web App and the Mobile App will still ring unless you set yourself unavailable on all platforms.
