    Run your outbound Dialer campaign from the Campaigns page and monitor its progress in the Real-time dashboard.


    Outbound Dialer campaigns automatically dial a list of contacts that you have added to the campaign either by using a CSV file containing phone numbers or by integration with a campaign calling list created in your CRM.

    This article describes running a campaign with a calling list imported from a CSV file.

    Running a campaign

    Outbound Dialer calling campaigns are run from the Campaigns page.

    After you have added a campaign to the Campaigns page, you can start, pause, or stop the campaign using the campaign control buttons. Clicking the buttons changes the campaign status.

    Outbound Dialer Campaign Start Pause Stop

    When a campaign is Active, Dialer automatically dials calls following the rules you specified for the campaign in the Add campaign page. You can choose to put the campaign on hold temporarily by clicking Pause. If you click Stop, the campaign ends as incomplete – it cannot be started again.

    Once all the numbers in the calling list have been called and the redial attempts criteria are met, the campaign ends and the status changes to Completed. To review a report about the campaign, click the name of the campaign in the Campaigns page. Refer to Campaign reports for more information.

    You can run the campaign again by cloning it. To clone a campaign, click the Clone button in the far right column of the campaign row. A duplicate of the campaign is created and is opened in the Edit campaign for you to adjust the parameters and reimport the calling list or import a new calling list.

    To delete a campaign that is in the Draft status, open the campaign in the Edit campaign page, then click Delete campaign.

    The Agent experience

    When a campaign is active, the agents you have assigned to the campaign are notified in the Agent Panel that a campaign has started. Agents join the campaign from the Dialer campaign page in the Agent Panel. Refer to Outbound campaigns for more information about how agents participate in Dialer campaigns.

    Monitoring a campaign

    While a campaign is active or paused, you can monitor the progress using one or more widgets in the Real-time dashboard.

    To add a widget to the Real-time dashboard, from the Voiso navigation bar, navigate to Reporting > Real-time dashboard. If you do not already have a dashboard, click Create dashboard. To use an existing dashboard, select it from the Dashboards menu or select Add dashboard to add a new dashboard.

    There are several widgets you can use to track your campaign progress and performance in real-time:
