    Article summary

    Presence icons in Dialpad provide a visual representation of a user's availability and status. The icons are displayed next to the user's avatar in the Dialpad App and on the left-hand sidebar in the Favorites and Recents sections. The colors of the presence icons indicate different statuses, such as green for available, red for unavailable or on a call, and yellow for busy or in a meeting. The red presence icon can have multiple meanings, including "Do Not Disturb," "on a call," or "in a Dialpad Meeting." The presence icons can be synced with your calendar to automatically update your status based on your meetings or activities. In Call Centers, being in a meeting is shown as red instead of yellow. External Dialpad users from outside your company will always appear as green.

    Presence icons provide a simple visual reference of a user's current availability and status. This makes it easy to tell if someone is in a meeting, on a call, in Do Not Disturb, or available.

    Let's dive into the details.

    Who can use this feature
    Presence Icons are available to all Dialpad Users on all plans.

    Presence icon

    Dialpad's presence icons are displayed next to your avatar in two different locations:

    1. Beside your settings in the Dialpad App
    2. Beside the user's name on the left-hand sidebar in the Favorites and Recents sections.


    Presence icon colors

    Presence icons use a simple color code, so it only takes a quick glance to see if your colleague is available.

    • Green: Available 
    • Red: Unavailable
      • On a call
      • In a meeting 
      • Set to Do Not Disturb
    • Yellow: Busy 

    When referencing your favorite and recent conversations in the Dialpad app, you'll also see a written description of the User's status. 


    Red presence icon 

    While some presence icon colors, such as green, have only one meaning, others, such as Red, can have multiple meanings. 

    Let's take a look at the different options for the red presence icon.

    Red circle with a line - Do Not Disturb (DND)


    A red circle with a line through it means that you have set yourself to Do Not Disturb (DND) mode, which will prevent calls from ringing your devices.

    Red circle with a phone icon - on a call


    A red circle with a phone icon means you are currently on a call.

    Red circle with a video camera icon - in a Dialpad Meeting


    If you have synced your Dialpad Meetings account with Dialpad, a red circle with a video camera icon means you are currently in a meeting.

    Frequently asked questions

    How come some people are always green?

    If you're chatting with an external Dialpad user from outside your company, you'll see a green circle icon at all times.

    How come my local presence icon says I'm in a meeting but I'm not?

    If you've synced Dialpad with your calendar (Google or Office 365), Dialpad will automatically update your presence icon to "In a meeting" anytime there is a meeting/activity noted on your calendar. 

    How come in my Call Center, if I'm in a meeting is shown as red and never yellow?

    When you are on a call in a Call Center, your presence icon will display as red and not yellow.
