Integration service (WIService)
Wildix Integration Service (WIService) is a component that is required to be installed in order to use CDR-View, Popup App, WebRTC Phone Direct RTP (Windows), URI dialing (sip-tel-wildix).
Several other standalone components also depend on WIService: Fax Printer, Screen sharing component, Headset integration, Outlook integration (detailed information about these components can be found in Extensions chapter of Collaboration User Guide). When installing one of the mentioned components, WIService is automatically installed.
WIService integrates with Mac OS Contacts: macOS contacts lookup and call generation.

The option is enabled in Collaboration settings -> Personal -> Dialing hot key. It allows setting up a shortcut for click2call from applications/ web pages. To place a call, select a phone number and press the key combination. The call is placed via an active device set in Collaboration.
