Enable outbound calls - Amazon Connect

Enable outbound calls

Before your agents can make outbound calls to customers, you need to set up your Amazon Connect instance for outbound communications.

  1. Open the Amazon Connect console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/connect/.

  2. On the instances page, choose the instance alias. The instance alias is also your instance name, which appears in your Amazon Connect URL.

  3. In the navigation pane, choose Telephony.

  4. To enable outbound calling from your contact center, choose Make outbound calls with Amazon Connect.

  5. To enable outbound campaigns, choose Enable outbound campaigns.

  6. By enabling early media audio, your agents can hear pre-connection audio such as busy signals, failure-to-connect errors, or other informational messages from telephony providers, when making outbound calls. Choose Enable early media.

  7. Choose Save.

  8. Ensure agents have the Contact Control Panel (CCP) - Make outbound calls permission in their security profile. For instructions, see Assign a security profile to a user.
