Article Summary

Our team works around the clock to deliver you the best possible product, and we're always pushing out new features to improve your Dialpad experience. 

While we hope it won't happen, there is a tiny chance you could encounter a bug. If you do, our Support Team will walk you through any steps needed to get things back and running as soon as possible. They might ask for things like an error report or for you to clear your caches, both of which you can do right from the Dialpad app. 

Let's dive into the details. 

Who can use this feature

App troubleshooting is available to all Dialpad users.

Help Menu

Our built-in Help Menu gives users quick access to common troubleshooting tips and support options.

From the Help menu, you can:

  • Send Error Report: Sends a detailed error report to our developers.
  • Disable Run at Startup: Prevents Dialpad from opening at startup.
  • Disable Hardware Acceleration: Turns off hardware acceleration — this is not recommended. 
  • Access WebRTC Diagnostics: Verifies that your network connection is properly set up for WebRTC and also verifies that audio is functional.
  • Clear Cache: Removes files stored by the Dialpad app.
  • Enable Inspect Element: Lets you view the element's source code. 
  • Toggle Developer Tools: Opens the developer toolkit. 
  • Clear Cache and Restart the App: Clears caches and restarts Dialpad. 

The Dialpad Help Menu is available for both Windows and Mac OS users.
