    Dialpad offers the following ways to configure your data:

    • Filter by call center(s)
    • Filter by time 
    • Filter by Activity column(s)

    Filter by Contact Center(s)

    Display all Contact Centers at the same time, view a single call center, or focus on a specific set of Contact Centers. 

    1. Select the drop-down menu beside Contact Centers
    2. Check the box beside the desired Contact Centers
    3. Select Apply 


    You can also remove Contact Centers using the same drop-down and unchecking the boxes.

    1. Select the Columns drop-down menu
    2. Check the box beside each Activity column you'd like to add 
    3. Select Apply 


    Your dashboard can be filtered by the following key points:

    • Contact Center Name
    • Abbreviated name
    • Longest wait time
    • Queued calls 
    • Longest wait time
    • Number of available agents

    1. Select the Last Hours drop-down menu
    2. Select the desired time frame

    That's it! Your dashboard will instantly update. 



    Metrics categorized and labelled as "Live" are calculated as of their present status, and are independent of the timeframe chosen.

    Fullscreen view

    Dialpad's built-in dashboard includes a full-screen option, which can easily be projected onto a large monitor in a physical, in-person setting.

    Select the Fullscreen button and just like that, the dashboard will fill your entire screen.
