Article Summary

Finding specific coachable moments within a call can be time-consuming, but with Dialpad's Ai Call Summary, managers can easily find those moments on users' calls.

In the automated post-call summary email, you'll find:

  • Basic call information: A high level overview of the call information such as contacts' names, phone numbers, call dates and times, and call durations.
  • A searchable transcript: A complete transcript of the call where the call is broken down by speakers. You can also search for phrases and keywords in the transcript, as well as skip directly to different parts of the call audio to quickly see who said what on the call.
  • Key Moments: Your favorite Ai features such as Action Items, sentiment analysis, Call Purpose categories, and other important insights extracted from the call. These moments are great as a reminder of what attendees need to follow up on afterward.

Transcript & recording 

The live transcript shows the full text of the conversation in real time.

Call History and Call Review allows you to look at the call details post-mortem. Reading is faster than listening, so having a transcript allows you to quickly catch up on conversation details at a glance. Use the search bar to quickly find specific words, or if you're tired of reading, listen to the audio using the playback controls (if the call was recorded).

In the Ai Call Summary (found on the Call Review page), you'll find transcripts, highlights, and Moments-based excerpts.

We do recommend rating the Ai Call Summary for punctuation and capitalization accuracy; the ability to rate appears at the bottom of the screen each time a call review opens.


Call quality 

Easily see the network quality of your call from the Quality tab of your Call Review.

HD Calling (also known as VoIP) breaks the sound of your voice into thousands of packets. These packets traverse various paths on the Internet to Dialpad's servers, and then onto their final destination where they're reassembled. 

Without a reliable network, there's no guarantee that those packets can be reassembled in the right order or even arrive at all.  

The Quality section of your Call Review gives you the information you need to troubleshoot call quality issues by displaying information on bitrate, packet loss, jitter, and latency.

You will not see network quality information for calls placed on the mobile app, or for calls where the browser was closed before the end of the call. For calls with fanouts, Dialpad only displays the network quality information for the first fanout.
