Conference Bridge Features and Functions

Call Conference Features

To initialize a conference from your own extension dial 8 followed by your extension number.  E.g. if you are using extension 205, dial 8205.  A new conference room will be created, e.g. 205, with you as moderator and other users as participants with basic controls.

To join a conference created by another extension:

Internal:  Dial 8 followed by the extension/conference number.  If the conference is password protected you will be asked for a pin code.

External:  Dial the telephone number assigned to conferencing features.  You will be prompted for the conference number and if the conference is password protected you will be asked for a pin code.
