How do I join a conference bridge?

You can join a conference bridge from your Jive phone or a remote phone.

From Your Jive Phone

  1. Dial the conference bridge extension.
  2. Enter the conference bridge participant or host pin (if required).
  3. Record your name and then press # (if required).

From a Remote Phone

There are three ways for callers to access a conference bridge externally:
  • Blind transfer the caller to the conference bridge extension.
  • Route the caller to the conference bridge through a dial plan (Auto Attendant node or Conference Room node).
  • Give the caller a direct phone number to the conference bridge.
Once connected, you may be prompted to enter a conference bridge pin and/or to record your name.
