Welcome to the New smrtDialer
When you first land on the smrtDialer page, you can see a short introductory video that briefly presents what's new. As you select to go into the new interface, you will be presented with a visual guide highlighting the main features of the new design.
This article, along with the video above, will present you some of the most important key points of smrtDialer's interface:
How to Access the New smrtDialer
Navigate to smrtDialer from the left menu as you always have and find the campaign you would like to dial.
Once you pressed the New Call Session you will see the option to try the new smrtDialer. If you decline, you can still use the legacy smrtDialer interface. (Please note that even if you agree, you can switch back to the "old" smrtDialer at any time.)
If you agree, you will be taken to the smrtDialer page where you will take part in a short visual guide over the features. After you finish the small tour, you can start dialing your smrtDialer Campaign with the brand new interface.
We recommend trying it on since in the campaign there is a button that allows you to switch back to the current version.
🎉We appreciate any feedback on all aspects of the new smrtDialer 🎉
Please provide feedback via our Support Chat.
After you landed on Campaign's window, you have a clear view over your Settings. Placed in the top right corner, the Settings' gear allows you to:
Toggle on/off Auto-Resume
Enable A.I. Voice Detection
Set your theme for light or dark
Adjust the sound and speaker settings
Across the top of the screen, you will see important information about the active campaign. This new interface tracks agent activity in a way that allows for better decisions on training, staffing, and campaign and list management.
There is a new option called "Go on a break" which agents can press when they need a pause. This helps parse agent activity more closely.
Next to your Campaign's name, is the Status of your Call session. There are five possible statuses:
Idle - nothing is happening
Dialing - the line(s) are active
Active Call/Talking - agent is connected on a live line.
Finishing - call has ended and agent is entering notes or disposition to finalize the call.
On Break - agent is paused.
These will be tracked on each campaign, per session/agent that made a call session, along with the Break time.
It is also in the Option bar that you will find the Mute button.
When an agent selects to Go on a break, the system will track this break time, giving more detailed call session information and a better understanding of campaign/list performance. You can come back to your campaign by hitting the Resume button.
The final option in the Option bar is the Close Session button, which ends this session and takes you back to the list of Campaigns. We recommend clicking on the Close Session button prior to exiting the tab/browser, to ensure proper data tracking.
To start a Campaign, simply click on the Start green button. Your Campaign will run as smoothly as you are used to.
Once a call is connected, you will see the progress on each line - in a multi-liner subscription case - and what the result is with each of outbound call.

While on a call, the Lead Window will provide you with information regarding:

Action Bar across the top of the lead window:
☎️ Keypad - use the keyboard inside the smrtDialer whether using the mouse or your computer's keyboard.
✉️ Send SMS - send a text message while on a call, without leaving this window or hanging up the call.
➿ Drop Voicemail - in case you do not have A.I.Voice Detection on and you reached a leads's Voicemail, now you can drop yours manually.
📞 Transfer Call - smrtPhone Pro subscribers have the option of a warm transfer or group call. smrtPhone Standard subscribers can simply pass the call with a cold transfer.
⏸️ Hold Call - the option to hold the current call. (Available for Pro subscribers)
❌ Hang up - end a call at your convenience.

Call Session Tracking
While Idle, you can check the status of this call session within the campaign window.
On the right side you have:
Overview - informing you of total session time, break time taken during this session, leads, lines, or progress.
Session Log: informing you about each lead's status called on this session.
