Dial Actions

Overview

Dial Actions are “commands” which tell Acrobits client what to do with the particular number. In Cloud Softphone, it’s possible to configure which dialAction will be performed when dialing the number by single-tap, long-press and 3D-touch on iOS devices which support it.

For example, you can configure the “call” button in keypad screen to do a SIP call for single-tap and cellular call on long-press, or show all available dial actions as a menu on single tap.
