AniCa is a special add-on for your Genesys Cloud application that allows users to make outgoing calls with user-defined number (Caller ID).
This is necessary for agents or business users who work in multiple queues and/or groups. For example, it can be ensured that only the group number is displayed and that when the customer calls back, this call is also returned to exactly this group. It is therefore not necessary to give out the personal extension number. By default, Genesys Cloud allows a number to be entered for each outgoing call, but it cannot be saved for future calls.
AniCa provides a very convenient remedy here: a list of numbers can be configured and selected via a drop-down menu before an outgoing call is made. The last dialed number is already preset for the next call.
This tool passes the call command to the Genesys Cloud, eliminating the need for time-consuming manual entry of numbers before each call. In addition, a "click-to-dial" functionality is integrated, which makes it possible to highlight a number in the Google Chrome browser and dial it directly via right-click.

Please check under "Calls" > "Settings" > "Phone settings" if the slider at "Make calls with another app" is set to "On". This setting should be checked after each login.

- The numbers must be in E164 format.
* E.164 numbers can contain a maximum of 15 digits and are usually formatted as follows:
[+][country code][subscriber number with area code]
An example of a German number in E.164 format is: +497033548840
- Please note: For legal reasons, you may only use outgoing numbers for which you are authorized or which are assigned to you.
- Numbers once created in the data tables are available to all users of the Genesys Org concerned.
