Plecto: Business + CloudTalk

What is Plecto?

Plecto is a business performance platform which tracks various performance metrics in the form of visually illustrative dashboards. By integrating your CloudTalk call data into Plecto, you can make the most out of your data with Plecto’s visualization tools.

Data Integration Setup

  1. To start your integration flow, follow this link:

  2. In a separate browser tab, log in to your CloudTalk dashboard and navigate to Account > Settings. Go to the API Keys tab to +Add API Key.

    1. Under Key for the key-pair you just generated, select show. You will need to copy the API ID and Key values in the next step.

  3. In the Configure data flow within your Plecto browser tab, you will copy/paste the CloudTalk API ID into the Username field with the API Key as the Password.

  4. Select to import Inbound, Outbound, or Inbound Outbound and Internal call history.

    1. CloudTalk calls will be sorted into these three categories in Plecto.

  5. Keep checked the data types you want imported. Choose how you want data from CloudTalk to be mapped to Plecto fields such as Default date and Employee.

  6. Set your Import from date and select a Retention period to finish the flow.

    1. The Import from date should be in the format YYYY-MM-DD.

    2. The Retention period is how long you want Plecto to store your CloudTalk data.

If you're experiencing problems with this integration, please contact representatives from Plecto.
