Dialpad is a cloud-based business phone system that includes voice, video conferencing, messaging features, and a call center solution. HappyFox + Dialpad integration brings all your work communication into one platform, from emails to social media conversations to phone calls. 


With Dialpad integration, HappyFox agents can,

  • Receive inbound calls and initiate outbound calls directly within HappyFox.

  • Create new tickets in HappyFox for any inbound or outbound calls. This ticket contains the call summary along with the link to the recording of the conversation.

Note: At this point, mainline numbers from Dialpad are not supported. Only numbers assigned to call centers or departments can be configured inside HappyFox.

  • Automatic ticket creation for voicemails.

  • Transform incoming SMS into helpdesk tickets, enable replies within HappyFox tickets, and maintain all conversations with contacts in a single thread within the same ticket.
