Manage the Conference Call

Organizers can use web controls or phone commends (also known as "star codes") to manage the conference.

What are Web Controls?

Web Controls allow the organizers (hosts) to manage the conference online. Organizers can view conference participants, mute and unmute participants and control other aspects of the live conference call.

What are Phone Commands?

Organizer phone commands (also known as "star codes") are phone/keypad control functions that allow organizers and participants to manage the conference's available features. You can view a complete list of phone commands and web button controls by signing into www.openvoice.com with your organizer credentials and selecting Web Controls.
