The address book contains the following entities:

  • Agents – All the agents in the contact center.
  • Campaigns – All the campaigns in the contact center, with all the different DNIS.
  • Supervisors – All the supervisors in the contact center.

The address book is organized by contact (as opposed to by address), meaning that a contact may have several addresses. For each contact there’s the following fields:

  • Name
  • Relationships/source (Agents; Supervisors; Campaigns)
  • Address Media (Audio, Video, Email)


The address book is searchable by name and address.

The book control is always visible. When there’s no active interaction, the control will be expanded. When there’s an interaction, the address will be adjusted to a smaller size or totally collapsed, depending on the available space.

The address book has an input field to search for, and start, interactions:



The book is filtered as you enter a name or number in the input box. Once your address is found, its details are shown and you can start an interaction. If the contact has several addresses, the first one will be used; by default, unless an email address is entered or the contact only has an email address, the button makes a voice call.

A service and an agent are found below for new:



In the example below, clicking Show dial options refines the search, where you can specify service and outgoing address. In the example below, Agent yields:


Note: Users can have both a full name and a username. These are displayed in this format: Fullname(username). fullname.png

Select a contact to see its details and start an interaction. When the address input doesn’t match any of the items in the address book, a new, virtual entry appears so that you can start a new interaction.

When a call has been established:

Most used and favorite contacts

OneContact Agent address book allows the agent to mark contacts as favorites and shows all the contacts that the agent marked as favorites. It also has a group of the 5 most used contacts and it is added when a contact is used. If a contact is already added to the Favorites, it will not appear as a Most Used contact.


The address book has three groups of contact, the first group is the Favorites, the second group is the Most Used and the third group is All Contacts.
