The Dialpad Meetings iOS app allows you to start and join meetings from anywhere, not just on a computer.
To begin, download and install the Dialpad Meetings app from the Apple App Store. Keep in mind that your iOS device must be running iOS 15 or above.
Let’s take a look at the Dialpad Meetings app for iOS devices.
View Your Dashboard
Your Dialpad Meetings' dashboard allows you to quickly check meeting information, start or join a meeting, check your profile, and access app settings.
Start a Meeting
To start a meeting, select Start Your Meeting
- Decide if you’d like to join with video or only audio
- Toggle on the Microphone icon to join the meeting with your audio on
- Toggle on the Camera icon to join the meeting with your video on
- Select Join Meeting
If you don’t want to send or receive any video in order to conserve data usage, select More Options > Audio Only. It will not turn on your camera during the meeting or display other Participants’ video.
More Options also lets you opt-in to View screenshare only and request a dial-in to the meeting rather than needing to join via the app.
Invite Participants During Meeting
Participants are able to join using the meeting URL, but you can also navigate to the More tab as the Organizer and select Invite Others.
Dialpad Meetings displays a list of recent, frequent, and personal contacts to invite.
Join a Meeting
To join a meeting, tap on the searchbar that reads "enter meeting URL" and type in the name of the meeting and hit Enter to join.
Toggle the Microphone icon for audio and the Camera icon for video. Once you’ve determined what to toggle on/off, select Join With Video.
When using the Dialpad Meetings mobile app, you can watch up to 5 other participants’ video streams at once! Easily see who is speaking by the purple outline around their video feed.
Easily switch back and forth between sharing your screen and viewing the other people in the meeting.
- Tap the screen to access your active meeting menu
- Select the Actions Menu (the three vertical dots)
- Select ‘View Screenshare’
Select the My Meetings option along the bottom toolbar. Past meetings show up under the History tab and future meetings will show up under the Upcoming tab.
Access Meeting Controls
To access your Meeting Controls, simply tap anywhere on your screen.
Your Meeting Bottom Bar offers quick access to:
- Meeting details (the computer icon)
- Chat conversations (the SMS icon)
- Participant information (the people icon)
- More menu (three horizontal lines)
From the main Meeting screen, you can also turn your microphone and video on and off, adjust or mute your volume and access the Actions Menu to move your meeting to a conference room screen, or react with emojis.
Use the Meeting Tab to toggle the microphone, camera, or speaker and to end the meeting.
Dialpad Meetings displays the speaker on-screen, and you’ll see their video if the speaker’s camera is on. Otherwise, you’ll just see their profile picture and name. Your own video appears in the top-right corner if turned on, and there’s an icon to switch between front-facing and rear-facing cameras.
In the top-left corner, the meeting's duration remains visible at all times.
Use the Participants tab to view the Organizer and all other Participants in the meeting.
In this tab, you’re able to mute others and view user profiles. Organizers can also remove other Participants using the drop-down menu.
Use the Chat Tab to send and receive messages and images with all other Participants in the meeting.
Use the More Tab to review meeting information, invite other Participants, share meeting information, and adjust meeting settings.
Meeting settings include audio recording, Dialpad Ai, locking the meeting, and muting all current and future Participants.
Schedule a Meeting
Looking to schedule a meeting? From the dashboard, navigate to the My Meetings tab
- Select the Plus (‘+’) icon in the upper right hand corner.
- Enter the meeting name, other Participants, date, time, duration, and recurrence (Dialpad Meetings Business only)
- Select Next
- Decide to add the meeting to your calendar and if Dialpad Meetings should call Participants at the appointed time.
The setting tab allows you to customize your profile to the exact specifications you'd like.
To get there, tap on the Settings gear icon in the bottom right of the screen.
Here you'll be able to view your meeting URL, set hold music, adjust the time zone, and auto-dial to invited contacts.
Scroll a bit further down and you'll be able to adjust your notification settings. You can toggle which email addresses and phone numbers notifications are sent to.
You can also adjust what you receive notifications for. These include options such as creating a meeting, being invited to a meeting, five-minute reminders, call summaries, and general Dialpad Meetings updates.
Notify Me When
Finally, if you scroll to the bottom you'll see a few more options such as the ability to check the version number, send logs to support, visit our Help Center, share a link to Dialpad Meetings, rate the app, or log out.
