Enable Dialpad + Salesforce1

With Dialpad + Salesforce1, calls from your Salesforce mobile app can be routed to your Dialpad app, allowing you to keep your team's business calls on one platform while automatically logging to their Contacts or Leads.

In this article, we'll walk you through enabling the integration for your entire team, both on Salesforce Classic and Lightning. 

Salesforce Classic 

Salesforce Administrators will need to follow these steps to integrate Dialpad within Salesforce1 for their Salesforce Classic users:

  • Install the Dialpad for Salesforce app through the web (if you're restricting access to specific users or profiles, make sure the desired users have access to the various new components for this package)

  • For any objects that you want users to be able to initiate Dialpad calls from, add Dialpad to the Page Layouts

    Ex: If you want users to start a Dialpad call from Lead, follow these steps:

    • Log into Salesforce as an Administrator, click on Setup in the top right corner
    • In the Quick Find search field, type Page Layouts
    • Scroll down to the left-hand panel and click on the Page Layouts link under Leads
    • Click on Page Layout Assignment

  • Drag and drop the Dialpad Call action into the Salesforce1 & Lightning Actions section. The order of the actions here determines how they will appear in the Quick Action bar, so we recommend placing Dialpad Call towards the beginning of the list
