Article Summary

With Dialpad Meetings for Salesforce, you can view Salesforce insights straight from your Participant's profile, automatically log your meetings and even schedule Dialpad Meetings straight from Salesforce!

Additionally, your meetings will be saved under the Activity History for that Contact or Lead.

Let's dive into the details of this integration. 

Who can use this feature
Dialpad Meeting's Salesforce integration is available to all Dialpad Meetings users.

Enable the Salesforce integration

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


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: 

  • Title
  • Meeting Duration
  • Attendees
  • Chat log
  • Meeting Recording

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 Dialpad Meetings from Salesforce

Schedule your next Dialpad Meetings without ever leaving Salesforce!

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