url parameters for new phone call activity RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,
    I was hoping somebody would know what url parameters can be passed into the new phone call activity page (ie. http://server/organisation/activities/phone/edit.aspx), on the screen i was hoping to populate the phone number field as i already have this from a CTI client.

    Many thanks,
    Matt

  • Hi,

    Unfortunately it doesn't work for activity entities !

    There is a note over there in sdk for URL Addressable Forms and Views

    Note    This technique currently works for all entities except Activity entities.

    The attribute which you have to set is phonenumber

  • thank you - although i have tried -
    http://dev01/myOrg/activities/phone/edit.aspx?phonenumber=01234567890

    however the field does not populate correctly. I do not get an error which is why i was thinking the attribute name cannot be wrong, just perhaps wrong for the display field.

  • Hi, Matt.

    Check this url .

    Allow to use custom query string and in onload event handler read request string and fill in your fields.

    That note is very likely to be missed over there :)
