Start an UberConference in Dialpad

Dialpad gives you the ability to seamlessly start and join your meetings from anywhere. With UberConference Meetings, launch a free UberConference straight from their Dialpad desktop app. 

While a UberConference Free account is standard, Dialpad Administrators can upgrade their team members to a paid UberConference Business plan at anytime.

Let's take a closer look at how to start a conference from Dialpad.

Start a Conference

Launch a conference straight from Dialpad by either selecting UberConference from your drop-down menu or selecting it from within a message field. 

Drop-Down Menu Options

  • Select Start a Conference from the call button drop-down
  • Selecting Start from your Dialpad profile drop-down

Message Field Options

  • Selecting the UberConference button in your group chat
  • Entering the command /uberconference in a message field

With any of the examples above, the steps are the same:

  1. Organizer selects Join or Start
  2. Call is placed through Dialpad
  3. New window launches with active conference screen

If you're using the UberConference Chrome app, we'll launch that instead.

Join a Conference (Organizer)

As the conference Organizer (i.e. Host), you can join a conference by either:

  • Clicking on Join on the conference card invite within Dialpad
  • Clicking on Start from your profile drop-down in Dialpad

Dialpad Tip: If you select Start from your profile drop-down, only you (Organizer) will be in your active conference. 

Join a Conference (Participant)

Participants joining a conference invite from Dialpad will have a slightly different experience than those joining from outside of Dialpad. Let's take a look at each option, starting with joining from Dialpad. 

Join from Dialpad

  1. Click Join on your conference card within your chat
  2. Call is placed through Dialpad
  3. New window launches with active conference screen

If you're using the UberConference Chrome app, we'll launch that instead. If your Organizer requires a PIN, we'll enter it for you automatically. 

Join from outside Dialpad

If sending to a Participant outside of Dialpad, they'll receive a text message with the conference information in it, including:

  • URL
  • Dial-In
  • PIN # (if required)

Leave a Conference

When it's time to leave a conference you've hosted or joined, simply hang up the call from either Dialpad or UberConference to automatically close out your browser tab or Chrome app. 

Dialpad Tip: Closing your browser tab or Chrome app won't disconnect your audio. You'll still need to hang up the call either from Dialpad or UberConference.
