CallClerk - Settings Social Window

The CallClerk - Settings - Social window is used to set various in relation to sending social updates. 

CallClerk supports social updates through Facebook and Twitter.

Setting up to use Facebook

Before CallClerk can post information about an incoming or outgoing call to your Facebook account you will first need:

1. A Facebook account (to sign up for one for free please visit www.facebook.com)

2. To Authorize CallClerk to post to your Facebook account.  To do this, just click the 'Authorize CallClerk to Post' button on the CallClerk - Settings - Social window and follow the instructions.

Some notes about Facebook authorization:

Facebook authorizations are free and can be done in less than a minute, however, Facebook will only authorize you to automatically post via CallClerk for ~60 days, after which time you have to re-authorize CallClerk.  

Also, even though CallClerk doesn't retain your Facebook user id or password (rather it keeps a special token that Facebook provides when you get your authorization), Facebook will require you to re-authorize CallClerk if you change your Facebook password.

CallClerk shows you when your authorization period will expire on the CallClerk - Settings - Social window.  

CallClerk will prompt you at startup if your authorization period will be expiring soon or has expired, in which case you can return to the CallClerk - Settings - Social window and reauthorize CallClerk.

When you authorize CallClerk to post, Facebook will give you an option with respect to who can see the CallClerk posts.  In short, your options include: 'Only me' (the default), your 'Friends', or 'Public' (everyone).

Setting up to use Twitter

Before CallClerk can tweet (report) an incoming or outgoing call on Twitter you will first need:

1. A Twitter account (to sign up for one for free please visit www.twitter.com )

2. To Authorize CallClerk to tweet to your account.

To do this, just click the 'Get Twitter Authorization PIN' button on the CallClerk - Settings - Social window and follow the instructions.

Some notes about Twitter authorization:

Facebook authorizations are free and can be done in less than a minute,  and you should only have to do them once, unless you want to change the account CallClerk tweets to.

Twitter does not provide an option to keep your tweets private.

Posting and Tweeting

You can set if CallClerk post / tweets incoming, outgoing or both incoming or outgoing calls; just check (to tweet) or uncheck (not to post/tweet) the appropriate option.

Also to post/tweet incoming calls, the Social option must be turned 'ON' on the CallClerk - Settings - Control Panel for the caller types (Familiar, Unfamiliar, Blocked) that you would like to tweet.

The information you post/tweet is also determined by you; you can choose to post/tweet the CallClerk Display Name/Caller ID name, CallClerk Display Number/Caller ID number, date and/or time that a call was received or placed.

Regarding the name and number options: a dark check in the name or number option signifies that CallClerk is to tweet the CallClerk display name or number; a light check in these same options indicates that CallClerk is to tweet the caller ID name or caller ID number, while no check signifies that CallClerk will not tweet this information.

If none of the options name, number, date, or time are checked, but you have checked the option to tweet incoming or outgoing calls then either just 'Call received' or 'Call placed' (as appropriate) will appear in the tweet.

Once you have Authorized CallClerk to post/tweet to your account, you can click the 'Test' button to send a test post/tweet.

Once the current settings have been modified the changes may be permanently applied by clicking on the [Apply] or [OK] button or voided by clicking on the [Cancel] button. If either the [OK] or [Cancel] button is pressed then the CallClerk - Settings window will be hidden.

The CallClerk - Settings - Run Program window looks like this:
