    Let's dive into the details of this integration. 

    Who can use this feature

    The Dialpad Meetings for Salesforce integration is available to all Dialpad Meetings users.

    Enable Dialpad Meetings for Salesforce

    First things first, you'll need to enable the Salesforce integration. 

    From the Dialpad Meetings dashboard:

    1. Select Menu

    2. Select Account

    3. Navigate to Integrations

    4. Beside Salesforce, slide the Connect account toggle on

    5. Log into Salesforce

    6. Follow the setup prompts

    7. During an active meeting, connect your Salesforce account

      1. Select Participants

      2. Select the options menu beside the participant’s name

      3. Select User profile

      4. Select Connect to Salesforce

    Contact matching

    Dialpad Meetings matches Salesforce Leads and Contacts based on the email, phone number, and name you've added to your Dialpad Meetings account. 

    For enhanced accuracy, Dialpad will search for the contact's email first, followed by phone number, and then name. When we find a match, Salesforce will automatically map the correct contact.


    Check the Salesforce contact information against the participant's User Profile to prevent an incorrect contact match.

    Incorrect match

    If the connected Salesforce contact is incorrect, select Wrong contact? and search for the correct contact name.


    Manually create a Dialpad Meetings contact

    If you're having issues with contact matching, you can create the contact in Dialpad Meetings first, and then link to Salesforce via their profile. Once linked, the Participant will also appear in your Salesforce contact data. 

    Activity logging

    Both scheduled and completed meetings appear as Tasks in Salesforce.

    As long as the correct contact is matched, a new Task will be created against respective contacts with the following information: 


    Automatic Task creation is not instantaneous — it can take up to 5 minutes for a task to be created once the call has ended.

    You'll see the associated event on the Salesforce record that the Dialpad Meetings call was synced with. If the meeting had an audio recording or chats,   there will be links to those details in the event, as seen below. The exact layout will depend on your organization's unique Salesforce configuration.  


    This feature won't create new leads but does identify known leads and contacts.

    Schedule a Dialpad Meeting from Salesforce

    Schedule your next Dialpad Meetings without ever leaving Salesforce!

    First, you'll need to download the Dialpad Meetings app from the AppExchange. 

    Once installed, Salesforce teams can schedule meetings either by creating a new event, or through the Dialpad Meetings tab. 

    Let's take a closer look at each.

    Why aren't my meetings being logged?

    If your meetings aren't logging in Salesforce, ask yourself the following questions:

    1. Was the Salesforce contact created in Salesforce before your conference call ended?

    2. Is there more than 1 contact with that same name? 

    3. Is there more than 1 contact with that same phone number?

    If you answered Yes to the questions above and the contact is still not appearing, please reach out to Support.

    Can I log calls in Salesforce after the Meeting has ended?

    Yes, you can log Dialpad Meeting calls in Salesforce from the Meeting’s exit page.

    The ability to connect records after a meeting has ended is currently in an Early Adopter Program. To enable this functionality, contact your Customer Success Manager or our Support team.
