01 What are Notes on Aircall?

Within eDesk, you will be able to add notes during your conversations to remember important details for later. Adding notes is also helpful for your teammates, as the next agent in contact will have access to all the relevant information related to their last point of contact.

Your Notes will be visible to all teammates assigned to the same phone line. For each note left, we will display the name of the agent who wrote it and the time it was written at.

Important Note: regardless of where these notes are taken (whether it's Aircall or eDesk), they will be synced across the two platforms.

Also, good news! Aircall has a limit of 5 notes per call, whereas there are no limits in eDesk.
