Send a Fax
Before you can send a fax, you'll need your Administrator to add a fax line to your user account.
Click on Send a Fax to open a new Compose screen. From here you can either search the recipient's name or type their number manually.
Once you've selected your recipient, click on Upload a File to search through your own files. The following supported file types must be less than 10MB:
- .doc and .docx
- .ppt and .pptx
- .jpg and .jpeg
- .xls and .xlsx
As soon as you select the right file, it will automatically be sent as a fax.
You'll be able to view this transaction in the conversation thread, with a fax icon to show that your fax has been sent.
Dialpad Tip: Did you know that you can fax international numbers?
Receive a Fax
When someone sends you a fax, it will trigger an incoming message notification. Clicking on the notification will open the conversation thread where you can click on the fax icon to view.
We'll also send you an email notification, with a link to download the fax.
If you prefer, you can turn the email confirmations off. Just navigate to Dialpad.com>Your Profile>Voicemail & Missed Calls to uncheck this option.
