Lead Details

To access the lead details section, click on the warning icon.


To view the campaign script, click on the file icon. 


To manually open a CRM connected to DCDial, click on the target icon.

Please Note: You can set the campaign to automatically launch your CRM when the agent is connected with a customer.


When a call is terminated, a disposition screen will appear for you to set the status of the call. 

You can also click on the icon to access the disposition screen.

Select the appropriate disposition and click 'Submit' or 'Submit & Pause'.

  • Submit: Agent status will be set to 'Ready' immediately after dispositioning the call.
  • Submit & Pause: Agent status will be set to 'Paused' and will not receive further calls until you select 'Resume' in the agent controls. 

Please Note: You will not be able to proceed to the next call unless you disposition a previous call. Make sure to choose a disposition within 60 seconds after a call termination.


If the 'CB - Call back' disposition is selected, a new window will pop up allowing you to schedule the callback date and time. When the set time condition is met, the system will alert agents logged into the campaign to call the customer back. Depending on your permission, you may take ownership of the callback by checking the 'My Call Back' box, so only you will get notified to call the customer back. When you are done, click 'Submit' to save the callback. You can view your scheduled callbacks at any time by clicking on the Calendar button under the Call Controls tab.

Connection Status

The connection status should always indicate 'Connected' if DCDial is successfully connected with an agent. If the agent's external phone is not connected, the status will be 'Disconnected'.

You can also create a new message by clicking on the compose icon. Please enter the phone number of the lead to whom you want to send the message and type your message below.

While using a chat you can also insert emoji or add an attachment.
