Same time next week?

Do you have regular virtual meetings with the same people at the same time every week? Dialpad lets you set up conference calls to start at the same time on a recurring basis. You can choose to have the conference call repeat on a weekly basis, every other week, or in a monthly recurrence pattern, with no end date.

Video conferencing features that make for more productive meetings

Single Item Card security settings

Robust call controls

Keep your meetings secure and prevent unwanted guests with a range of host controls. Set up a waiting room (with music), add a PIN code, and lock the meeting once everyone’s in. Hosts also have the ability to mute everyone, limit screen sharing, and remove participants completely.

Screenshare Single Item Card

Screen sharing and recording

Screen sharing is great for both team collaboration and sharing visuals with clients. With Dialpad, you can share a window, tab, or your entire screen—even with people who don’t have the app. (You can send them an SMS with a link to join your screenshare.) Dialpad also integrates with Miro to let you do virtual whiteboarding!

Call Summary Search Single Item Card

Meeting notes

Dialpad Ai can transcribe meetings in real time, which means you can give the meeting your full attention—no more furiously typing up notes. And after the meeting, it'll automatically email all the attendees with the recording, a searchable transcript, and and action items for easy follow-up.

Call flip single item card

Take your calls anywhere

In the middle of a meeting, but need to step away from your desk? Dialpad lets you flip a call seamlessly between different devices—without interrupting or dropping the call.

Common meeting types you'll come across

One-off meetings

If you don’t want to commit to a regular pattern, you can schedule a single meeting for a specific date and time.

Recurring meetings

These are ideal for weekly team meetings, daily huddles, or regular catch-ups with remote employees. Each meeting uses the same meeting ID and settings.

Instant meetings

You might decide to have an off-the-cuff meeting because something urgent came up (say you work at a help desk and a customer has an important question). An unscheduled meeting has no fixed time—you can have a one-click meeting easily from Dialpad. Just click the video camera icon.

Meeting pages/personal meeting rooms

As well as the meeting options above, you can create your own personalized meeting page with your name as the meeting ID. It’s like a recurring meeting, but you’ll have a personal or branded URL.

Why schedule recurring conference calls?

Scheduling recurring conference calls not only helps to save you admin time and the hassle of having to create separate meeting invitations, it also lets you block off times on busy participants' calendars.

Everyone is aware of the pattern of meetings, so there’s no excuse for being late! Dialpad can has a dial-out option that automatically calls any participants who haven't joined yet at the appointed time!

Dialpad Meetings has helped us build stronger 1:1 client relationships. It removes the friction of traditional conference calling—all you need is a dial-in number or URL to join.
