  • In general "with the turn of a dial" can refer to automation or some action made easy. – user3169 Jun 9 '17 at 3:31
  • Do you know what the noun dial means in English? – P. E. Dant Jun 9 '17 at 7:07

Without the context, I can only make an educated guess. There are possibly two meanings: 1) This phrase may mean literally to turn a physical or UI knob. It connotes the easy way of doing something. 2) It can also mean metaphorically to do something without much hassle but there is no real dial in this case.
