How-To Place Your First Call On Desktop:
Follow the steps below, or watch this quick video explainer.
You will be prompted to set up your Dialer Video on desktop. You'll only have to do this once. Click 'Get Started'.
You'll then be prompted to enter the mobile phone number you'd like to receive text message alerts about when your patient has joined the video call room. Enter your mobile number in both fields then click 'Done'.
Note: This number will never be shared with patients and you’ll only have to complete this step once!
Next, you'll be brought to the Dialer Video Homepage where you can begin video calling on desktop. To start a call, enter your patient's cell phone number in the blank field at the top (red arrow) and click the green video icon.
Note: Clicking the green video call button will automatically send a text message to your patient from an 882-86 short number inviting them to join your call. See the screen below for what your patient will receive.
Once you join the call you’ll need to enable your web browsers microphone and camera so your patient can hear/see you. Click ‘Allow Camera & Microphone Access’.
Step 6a & 6b
After you allow camera & microphone phone access, you'll be brought into the video call room where you can either:
- Wait for your patient to join (6a)
- Hang up and we'll text you when your patient joins the call (6b).
Note: If you choose this option you can click the video icon on your 'Recents' list to rejoin the call.
Use the 'Call Nudge' button to call your patient without leaving the video call room if they miss the text you've sent them or forget about your scheduled video visit. Read more here.
That’s it! Once you’re both connected on the call your screen will look similar to the one below.
