After ensuring you are a Pipedrive Admin, you can start by logging into your CloudTalk Dashboard.

To finish your Pipedrive Integration Settings in CloudTalk:
Select which calls will be logged to Pipedrive (missed calls, link to voicemails, inbound/outbound calls). The calls will be logged as Pipedrive Activities. You can choose to log each type as
A completed call activity,

Do not log as call activity.
Choose which specific CloudTalk numbers should get linked to your Pipedrive integration by clicking
+Addunder the Connected Numbers section.
This feature is useful for Teams who have dedicated numbers for
account/sales development executives — each team representative
could add a respective CloudTalk integration and assign
missed calls to the authorized user. All call activities will
automatically be assigned to the user who set up the integration.
Choose whether you want to

Log only calls made during business hoursor when your lines are closed.
Decide how to tag your integrated Pipedrive contacts in CloudTalk.
Once the integration with Pipedrive is running, your data will always be up-to-date. All contacts added to CloudTalk after the integration will synch to Pipedrive automatically, and vice versa. Every phone call logged in Pipedrive will include the client’s phone number, the date/time and length of the call, a link to the call recording, and more (assuming calls of the given type have been configured to log to Pipedrive).
CloudTalk's Pipedrive integration is fully customizable, allowing you to set up Workflow automations to increase you call center's efficiency.
Make calls directly from Pipedrive
Using our Pipedrive CTI
Our recommended option for dialing a number from Pipedrive doesn't rely on the click-to-call extension.
Pipedrive's default calling app will start a call directly from the Chrome browser after you click on a number in Pipedrive. We can set our CTI soft phone as the default calling app in Pipedrive.
Agents can change their default calling app with these steps:
Navigate to Tools and Integrations by clicking your profile icon. Under Tools, select Phone calls.
In the Personal tab, you can choose your Default calling app. Expand the dropdown and select CloudTalk.
settingsto confirm changes.
Using CloudTalk's Click-to-Call Extension
Make sure you have our Click-to-Call extension installed and set up properly. You'll also need to disable Pipedrive's default calling method, so that it's not conflicting with the extension. In fact, we recommend removing any other Chrome extensions or telco providers which may interfere with the click-to-call feature.
Go to your Pipedrive settings.
Click on Calling in the left sidebar menu, then select Personal.
For Default calling app, select Custom, setting the value to a pound sign (#) followed by the desired number pattern.
Click on the Save settings button to confirm changes.
