System Requirements 


Only calls made through the Dialpad desktop app for Mac or Windows will have their screen recorded.

Calls made on other devices including CTI will only have audio recordings.

macOS Catalina: Agents will also need to grant access the first time they make a call with Screen Capture turned on. You can also confirm this in “Security & Privacy” settings and grant Dialpad access to Screen Recording.

The screen capture is streamed from the Agent’s desktop to the cloud in real-time during a call. For the best experience make sure your Agent has a good internet connection with at least 1.5Mbps bandwidth spare per screen. If you see a broken-up image when reviewing a screen recording, this will indicate a period of poor connectivity. 


Screen captures can only be viewed when using the Google Chrome web browser.
