Operators assigned to a Department are able to interact with callers in real-time, answering questions and offering assistance efficiently. 
Let's dive into assigning operators to your departments. 
Who can use this feature
Admins on a Dialpad Ai Voice license are able to assign Operators.

  1. Navigate to Departments
  2. Select Assigned Operators & Phones
  3. Select Add people from your team
  4. Enter a user's name or email address

Dialpad Tip

Up to 25 Operators can be assigned per Department.

Assign an Operator to Multiple Departments

Need to assign an operator to 2 (or 10!) departments? No problem. 

Head to your Admin Settings at 

  1. Navigate to Office
  2. Select Users
  3. Choose the user and select Options 
  4. Select Groups
