Enable Voice Intelligence for Offices & Shared Lines


By enabling Voice Intelligence (Vi) across your Company, Office, or Shared Lines, you're giving your team access to fantastic time-saving features such as live transcription, action items, key moments, and searchable call summaries.

Some Dialpad administrators need to be able to centrally control which of their offices have the ability to implement Vi. This is important when an office’s location or policy prevents the use of Voice Intelligence.

Vi must first be enabled at the Company and Office level, then any call will have the option to take advantage of its features. Additionally, you can configure Vi preferences for Individual Users, Main Line, Departments, Call Centers, and Coaching Groups.

Let's take a closer look at how Admins can enable this feature for a Company, Offices, and Shared Lines.

Enable Voice Intelligence for Company


From Dialpad.com, navigate to Admin Settings (that's the gear icon on the left) and make sure that the drop-down menu on the top left is set to My Company

Navigate to the Voice Intelligence Menu on the left side, and select Settings & Permissions.

To allow Voice Intelligence to be used in your company, make sure the large switch at the top of the Settings & Permissions Page is switched to on.

After you take this step, decide which offices in your company should be permitted to use VI. You can select all, or specify on an office-by-office basis.

💡 Note: For the offices that you enable VI to be turned on for, each office will have to take the additional step below of turning it on for their offices.
