    Thanks for the feedback, Rob. We'll be interested to hear whether this is important to other users as well.

    Hey!

     

    I was about to write exactly the same post myself. 

     

    Our account managers have their phone calls routed to their mobile phones and instead of knowing who is calling they must ask who it is on the other side. We need to find a solution to this because it looks quite unprofessional when the customer's personal account manager doesn't know who they are.

     

    We as well had this functionality previously with Natterbox and I'm hoping this is something that will be added soon.

    This feature is extremely important for us as agents working on mobile phones are no longer able to identify who the customer calling them is.

    The result is that customers are greeted with generic "can I ask who is calling" and the automatic support entitlement check cannot be carried out.

    Please see if this feature can be added (ideally as an option)

    Not knowing who is calling through significantly decreases the utility of this service. Additionally, since there are often delays in voicemail notifications it can take time to learn who called and what they wanted.  This issue ismake or break for my use of this feature. Please patch!

    Thanks for sharing, all. We've flagged this for the appropriate product managers to read, and they'll follow up if they have questions. Other users are welcome to continue sharing their thoughts and voting as well.

    This feature is standard with most phone providers, or at least an option to toggle the feature on/off.

    This is a crucial feature that I would think would be the norm to include for a system such as this. Has there been any update to implementing something like this?

    Please this is an important feature!
    the reason I have 99% of the calls go to voicemail when away from the desk is because we cannot identify the caller.

    We are not sitting in front of the browser all day and typically are "working"
    Either create TALK into the support or separate mobile app (doubt it as this has been a request for years and your hands are tied with twilio being the provider) or add this functionality of caller ID (NOT THE ZENDESK NUMBER ONLY)

     

    Please and Thank you

    Hi!

    This is an important feature that we need to have as missed calls need to go to voicemail and we need to be able to call them back and they do not always leave a call back number. I would recommend adding the contact number as whom is calling and having a "company name" as Zendesk.

    We strongly agree with this requirement.

    Classic standard phone system are able to display always the original caller ID even when the call is forwarded through different units.

    It is a standard like how the numbers are arranged on a dialing display or an e-mail-adress contains always an @.
