Intulse's MinistryPlatform integration merges your phone system with your MinistryPlatform account. With the integration enabled, any screen in the Intulse App that would normally display a simple phone number will instead automatically search the caller ID within MinistryPlatform and return any records that match.

When you receive an incoming call, instead of displaying the caller ID, your phone system will display the name of the caller as it appears in your MinistryPlatform records. You can click on the caller’s name to open their records within MinistryPlatform. You can quickly add your own commentary to the call log, which will automatically contain basic information about the call, such as the user and extension on your system with whom the call was connected, the date and start time of the call, the duration of the call, whether the call was inbound or outbound, and the external phone number. A copy of the call recording is also attached to the call log if it was recorded.

You will be able to start calls to MinistryPlatform contacts directly from within the Intulse App by simply searching for a contact name on the My Phone screen.

Furthermore, if you have the Intulse Companion App installed in your browser, you will be able to start calls and text message conversations directly inside MinistryPlatform by simply clicking on a phone number.

To experience the integration between Intulse and MinistryPlatform, you will need to use the Intulse App.

If you would like to have the MinistryPlatform integration enabled for your account, please contact Intulse support and we would be happy to get you connected.
