Dialpad Meetings Control Basics

Dialpad Meetings offers a wide variety of settings and controls that you can customize while within a meeting.

Let's take a look at Dialpad Meeting's basic controls from within your meeting. 

Active Meeting bottom menu

From an active meeting, users can see the bottom toolbar containing organizer controls, chat, audio and mic settings, reactions and Ai meeting notes. 


The video feeds of all participants will show up on the screen when the user's cameras are active. When disabled, only the participant's initials will display. 

See the name and duration of the meeting, Meeting URL, and dial-in number from the Meeting Info section. When clicking on the dropdown arrow, you'll find not only the meeting's details, but also the capability to invite others via name, number, or email address.

Let's go over some other key features that are accessible from the Meeting's bottom toolbar.

Organizer controls 

Available only to the organizer, the organizer controls provide tighter control of the meeting with options such as recording, starting Dialpad Ai, muting or moderating participants, locking the meeting, and more.  

To access organizer controls, hover your mouse over the bottom of the active call display, and click 'Organizer Controls' 


By default, only the meeting organizer can moderate the meeting. However, if you would like your co-host to be able to access organizer controls, this is possible by updating your Dialpad Meetings settings, by toggling on "Allow co-hosts with access to organizer controls"
