How do I manage a conference?

Organizers can use various features during the conference to manage it (hand raising, recording, locking a conference, etc.).

Additional Access Numbers

When an organizer account is created, your account administrator may have provisioned your account with a few of the dial-in access numbers.

You can request additional access numbers for other countries by clicking on the additional international access numbers link at the bottom of the My Conferences page to see the list of available access numbers for your company's account. Based on this list, you can request your account administrator to provision additional access numbers for your conferences.

Multiple Organizers

Multiple organizers can be logged into a single conference call. However, only 1 conference room and organizer PIN can be used to join a conference.

Organizers who log in as participants are listed as organizers on a conference call.

Hand Raising

The Hand Raising feature is enabled when a conference is in Lecture Mode with participants not being able to unmute themselves. Participants can activate Hand Raising by pressing on their telephone keypad. A yellow hand icon will appear on the organizer's Web Controls screen to alert them of the participant who would like to speak. Organizers can click on the mute icon to unmute the participant's line.

Recording a Conference Call

Organizers can record up to 4 hours of any conference. These recordings are stored in an .MP3 format for up to 365 days or 12 months. You can listen to the recording by clicking on the recording date in the Recordings page list.
