    Article Summary

    Dialpad offers a feature called agent screen capture, which allows supervisors to see what agents are doing on their desktop during calls. To enable this feature, administrators need to go to the Admin Settings on and select the desired Contact Center. In the Advanced Settings, they can enable automatic call recording and choose to also record the agent's screen for both inbound and outbound calls. Chrome OS users need to submit a screen capture request to Google and add to the URL allowlist for screen recording. To view a screen capture, users can go to, navigate to Call History, and select the Video Camera icon next to the call. The retention period for screen captures is one year, and audio recordings are separate from screen captures. Multiple screens used by agents are recorded and visible during playback. Agents are notified that their screens are being recorded through a notification banner in the Dialpad app.

    Enhance coaching and training capabilities by enabling agent screen capture to see what your Agent does on their desktop during a call.

    Frequently asked questions 

    What is the retention period for a screen capture?

    By default, screen captures are retained for one year and then deleted.

    Will I still see audio recordings too?

    Yes. While screen capture does contain audio, you will still get separate audio files.

    Will multiple screens be recorded?

    Yes, if your agent uses multiple screens, both are recorded and visible during playback.

    Why does the image appear broken?

    If you see a broken-up image when reviewing a screen recording, this indicates a period of poor connectivity. 

    Will the screen capture continue to record if the call is transferred internally from a Contact Center (where the screen capture feature is enabled) to a Dialpad user?

    No, this feature is only available to a Contact Center if enabled.

    Will agents be aware their screen is being recorded?

    Yes, the agent will see a notification banner at the bottom of their Dialpad app.
