- Name Announce Feature
- As an option, you can request that the 'name announce'
feature be enabled on your account. Once 'name announce' is enabled, when the participant logs into the conference
call, he/she will be asked to say their name. Our system records the name.
- The 'leader' or moderator can then enter the keypad
command [# 8] and hear a private roster of who has logged in. There is no limit as to how
many times this can be done during the conference call.
The alternate version of the 'name announce' feature announces the participant to the entire conference call.
- Auto Hang Up Feature
- With this feature enabled, once the moderator or leader hangs up from the conference, the entire call is disconnected. Optionally, you
can disable this feature so that the conference call can continue even after the moderator hangs up by having the
feature disabled by customer service.
Be aware, that if the Moderator plans on using a cell phone or a VoIP line when he/she logs into
the conference call and this feature is enabled, any disconnection
of the Moderator's phone will cause the conference call to disconnect everyone. If this occurs, all participants
would need to dial back in.
For example: if the Moderator is using a cell phone and for some unknown
reason the cellular network drops the call, the conference call would be disconnected because the conferencing
bridge thinks the conference call is over.
Another example: if the moderator uses a VoIP phone to moderate the call
and the VoIP network that the Moderator is using has a significant packet loss or the call is dropped by the VoIP
system, the conference call will be completely disconnected because the system believes the conference call is
The solution is to call customer service and ask that this feature be turned on or off when required. In other
words, if you intend to host a conference call using your cell phone or a VoIP phone, you may want to contact customer
service and ask that the 'auto hang up' feature be disabled for the call you are about to host. This will prevent
all participants from needing to dial back in if your 'moderator' phone line connection drops.
If the Moderator is using a standard fixed landline, this is typically not an issue.
