One-Page Call Request Form (HTML)

This is about as simple as WebCallback can get. For ultimate simplicity, you can sign up online and use the standard call form generated there. If you want more control over look-and-feel, so all pages are in your site and have your proprietary style, you can simply add a single page to your web based on the code of this page.

You can make some simple modifications to allow you to test this code in your site.  You can also get a Call Request Form without these technical notes, which will be easier for you to modify.

Before going any further you should test this form to be sure you are starting with a working page. We have provided a drop-down to allow you to select your country code.  Enter your number and click the "Call Me Now" button.

1. Select the country you are in
2. Enter your number
3. Select a time for the call if necessary *
4. Click here!

The next page you see will either be a failure report or a success report.

If you see a success report, after a few seconds your browser will jump to the WebCallback Home Page and you should receive a call from GlobalPhone.

Changes You Must Make

It is easy put WebCallback into your webs. Just take the HTML source of this page (or, better, the form without technical notes) and put it into your web.

Add appropriate look-and-feel and remove text you don't want your readers to see.   Then call GlobalPhone, or have us call you via WebCallback, to set up your site details (called number and site identifier) and authorize test calls from your web. (You can get a site identifier by signing up online if you prefer).

You will then need to change the HTML to use your number rather than GlobalPhone's.  You do this by replacing "globalphone" with your own site identifier (given to you over the telephone or on-line) in the part of the code which reads:

<input type="hidden" name="SiteId" value="globalphone">

If you don't want your successfull calls to end up at the Web Callback home page, you should edit the section of the HTML which reads:

<input type="hidden" name="ReturnPage" value="">

so the Callback processor returns to some other page.  This should ideally be a complete URL, with or without the leading http:, such as //

There are several further levels of sophistication you can add if you like the service.  For example, you can add "own-brand" success and failure report pages so your web readers never see the GlobalPhone pages which follow the call request form.
