The dialing session can be initiated only from the My Session tab. Please dial into the Phone Bridge to click the Start Session button.
After clicking the Start Session button, the 'Before You Begin’ window will pop up. This allows you to select the starting point from where to begin the session and the time zones you want to dial.
From The Beginning – Choose ‘From The Beginning’ to start at the beginning of your list.
Where I Left Off – Choose if you would like to start your session exactly where you left off during your last session. When using this, you want to make sure you have not reloaded your list.
From Row – Allows you to choose which row number you want to start dialing from.
NOTE: It is not recommended to make any changes in your List Settings when choosing the From Row field.
Dialer Setup – This section will bring the following settings information that you have configured for the active report/call list in the Import New List/Add Record from CSV window, during prospects upload from My Lists. You can change the settings as needed, before starting the session.
- Caller ID
- Sort By
- Instructions for Dialing Agents
To dial international calls, select the Time zone ‘International’. A confirmation message will be displayed as shown below:
Click OK to proceed to dial the list. After which, all the other U.S. Time Zones will be disabled or grayed out to restrict dialing records in other time zones.
Instructions for Dialing Agents – Here you will see what you have recorded in the List Dialing Settings window in the My Lists tab for that call list. These are for the Dialing Agents to use when asked by Operators or Gatekeepers, who you are, where you are calling from, or why you are calling during an Agent Assisted Dialer session.
NOTE: The Dialer Setup section will be ‘blank’/’unselected’ when initiating a dialing session for the Cadence prospects (imported from Cadence » Pending Calls tab) and allows to configure the required settings before dialing.
The Instructions for Dialing Agents is a mandatory field and hence valid dialing instructions must be provided. If this field is left ‘blank’ and when clicking the Begin Dialing button, an alert message below will be displayed. Click OK and enter the instructions to pass through.

|Orange||Prospects being dialed by the dialing agents|
|Green||Current transferred call|
|Light Gray||Dialed but not connected|
|Gray (Phone Number with bold)||Connected calls during the session|
