Custom Calling Features (CCF): Conference: Meet-Me

A Meet-Me Conference allows up to 14 parties to dial one telephone number to establish a conference call. The originator of the conference should contact the Teleconference Operator Services at (512) 232-CONF (2663) to obtain the conference telephone number. This number must be distributed to all conferees who call the number at the specific date and time.

What You Do What You Hear

1) Dial the listed directory number given to you by the operator. If you are the first conferee or originator of the conference call, you will hear a ringback tone.

OR

If you are not the first conferee, you will be connected with the one or more parties already in the conference call.

(You may choose to do a roll call to assure that everyone is in the conference call.)

As other conferees dial the listed directory number, you will hear a confirmation tone. After the tone, you can speak to the new conferee. A tone alerts you that another person has entered the conference. It is heard by all existing conferees.

2) To lock the conference call and make it private, do a hookflash.

If conferees need to be able to leave and re-enter conference, do not hookflash. This will, however, permit others to enter the conference.

3) A conferee leaves the conference.
