Your new Conference is a separate Toll-Free number for hosting both "Reservationless" (unreserved) and "Scheduled" (reserved) conferences. Callers who dial the Conference are asked to enter their "conference code" to join the conference. Each conference (Reservationless and Scheduled) can have a Host code and a Guest Speaker code. In addition, Scheduled conferences can have an optional Guest Listener code. Callers who enter the Host code are able to access the Host Conference Controls during the conference. Callers who enter the Guest Speaker code are allowed to speak during the conference. Callers who enter the Guest Listener code are able to listen but not speak during the conference. Both Guest Speakers and Guest Listeners are able to access Guest Conference Controls.

This article will guide you through the process of setting up and configuring your new Conference.

Extending The Length of a Scheduled Conference

(Applicable to Scheduled Conferences Only) The Host may touch #1 during a scheduled conference call to extend the length of the scheduled conference by 15 minutes. The host can use this feature multiple times as necessary to increase the length of the conference.

Increase The Size of a Scheduled Conference
(Applicable to Scheduled Conferences Only) The Host may touch #2 to reserve an additional inbound line during a scheduled conference. For example if the conference in progress has 10 lines reserved but the Host would like to allow another person to be able to call in and join the conference, then the host can touch #2 during the conference to increase the number of reserved lines to 11. This feature can be used multiple times as necessary during the conference, up to the maximum allowed scheduled conference size.

Mute/Unmute All Guest Lines

The Host can Mute or Unmute all Guest lines in a conference by touching #4. This will not mute the host's line. This allows the host to regain control of a conference, effectively becoming the only speaker. This is sometimes referred to as "Lecture Mode". The Host can use this feature as often as desired during the conference.

Terminate Conference

The Host may immediately terminate a conference by touching #73. When the host terminates the conference, all parties hear an announcement indicating that the conference is ending now, and then all lines in the conference are dropped. This feature can be used by the host as desired to ensure that participants will not continue to speak after the host leaves, eliminating any additional costs on the conference.

Mute/Unmute My Line

This control is available to both Hosts and Guests. This feature allows the participant to mute or unmute their individual lines. The Host or Guests may mute or unmute their own lines by touching *1. When muted, the participant cannot be heard by the other participants in the conference.

Disable Entry/Exit Notification Tones

This control is available to both Hosts and Guests. This feature allows the participant to disable or enable the notification "beeps" that are normally heard when new guests join or leave the conference. The Host or Guests may disable or enable the notifications by touching *2. The disabling of these "beeps" applies only to the participant line that used the command, not to all participant lines.
