Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Do I have to be the Zoom Admin to enable the integration?

Yes. You’ll need to be a Zoom and Dialpad Admin to enable the integration. Individual users do not have to be Admins. 

My user is unable to send out invites. What could be wrong?

We check for a user's account based on email. Please confirm that their email address in Dialpad matches the one they have in Zoom. 

Do Zoom meetings appear in Dialpad Analytics?

Zoom meetings will only appear in Dialpad Analytics if you dial in to your Zoom meeting's audio from Dialpad using a phone access number. If you connect to audio through the Zoom app or web app they will not show up in Dialpad Analytics.  

I’m not based in the US/Canada. Why can’t I send an invite to a PSTN number?

Dialpad currently supports texting within the US/CA only

Can I start Zoom meetings using my Dialpad mobile app?

Yes! While we don’t have a quick start button, conference invites can be sent out by sending a /zoom message on mobile.
