Create a Lightning App

After configuring your call center, you will need to create a Lightning App. This app is where the CTI softphone is enabled, allowing the Agent Desktop widget to appear. The following instructions are valid for either Lightning or Service view.

Creating the App

Step 1: Add new Lightning app

  1. If your users will be working in Lightning and you want Agent Desktop to be embedded in Lightning, you'll need to start in Lightning view and then click Setup. Likewise, if your users will be working in Service and you want Agent Desktop to be embedded in the Service app, you'll need to start in the App Launcher, click Service, and then click Setup.

  2. In Setup, use Quick Find to get to App Manager. Click New Lightning App and the New Lightning App configuration wizard will open.

  2. Optional: Fill out the Description field.

  3. When finished, click Next.

Step 3: Set app options

In this step, you will set standard navigation for the app. Note that you can choose either the full set of Setup options for Lightning view, or the Service Setup option for Service view. This is the only configuration step where the instructions differ for Lightning versus Service cloud.

    1. Navigation Style - Select "Standard navigation"

    2. Setup Experience -
      For Lightning view, select "Setup (full set of Setup options)"
      For Service view, select "Service Setup"

    3. App Personalization Settings - Optional

  2. When finished, click Next.
