MPVEX Click2Call Browser Plugin
Click2Call is a plugin specifically for the Chrome or Brave browsers that enables a portal user to start calls from their browser. In Chrome terminology this is a browser extension. Once it is installed the user will enjoy the ability to connect to any phone number that appears in Chrome by clicking on it. Click2Call will make the connection to the number through the user’s MPVEX portal with a designated device belonging to the user.

Using the Extension
Once installed, the Click2Call plugin will be represented by a phone icon in the top right of the browser window. It will be directly to the right of the URL bar. The icon will be red or green depending on the state of the extension.
- Red – signifies that the extension is not logged in, or there is problem preventing the plugin from functioning.
- Green – signifies that the extension is logged in and functioning.
If the Click2Call icon is red and you click it, a login interface will display. You cannot utilize the plugin if you are not logged in.
The login Interface will show the following:
- User – Enter the portal username. This user must be simpleuser enabled; meaning that the user must have simpleuser role enabled and have an associated device user.
- Password – Enter the user’s password for the portal in this field.
- URL – The portal address. The MPVEX portal site is secured with SSL certification. You do not need to enter the https:// in the URL field, just enter as shown below.
- Login button – Once the user credentials and url are entered, click the Login button and the extension will be able to access the user portal.
Once logged in, the Click2Call icon will be in its green state and the browser will now do the following:
- Telephone numbers are converted to clickable links.
- Clicking on a phone number link will initiate a connection to the number through the user portal and with the user’s chosen device.
- Clicking on the Click2Call icon itself will reveal a dialogue box giving you access to the rest of the Click2Call features
The Click2Call Dialog Interface (after login)
When the plugin is opened for the first time after login, it will default to the Home panel; otherwise it will default to the panel which you last accessed.

- Device: This dropdown will list all devices registered to the user. Whichever device the user selects is the device that will ring on the user’s end when starting a call from the plugin. Once the user answers the selected device, then the call will connect on the other end. If a selection is made in this dropdown, the “Save” button must be clicked to update the plugin.
- Confirm: Select “yes” to enable and “no” to disable. Then click the “Save” button to register the change with the plugin. If “yes” is selected, then a confirmation window will appear each time a user clicks a phone number. Clicking yes in that confirmation window will connect the call. Clicking no in that confirmation window will cancel the call.
