    Now that you know the basic set up steps, let’s review in a bit more detail how you can have your best conference call!

    How do I set up a conference calling account?

    Start with a 14-day free trial. Once your trial ends, choose the right calling plan for your needs. We offer affordable plans for individuals to enterprise-level corporations.

    How do I locate my conference call numbers?

    Log in to your conference calling account with your email and password. The dashboard shows your dedicated dial-in, conference code and host code.

    Does my conference call number stay the same?

    Your conference call dial-in number, conference code and host code are dedicated to you for use any time you want to host a conference call. 

    How do I select the right dial-in numbers for my participants?

    Are you hosting a toll or toll-free call? (Learn the difference) If it’s a toll-free call, you can give your toll-free number to all your callers and they will be able to connect from wherever they are at no cost to them.

    If hosting a toll conference call, you can either select a local number near your business to give to everyone or distribute local numbers for each area your callers are joining from. Many calling plans now include unlimited long-distance calling, so most of our customers choose to use one dial-in number for each caller in the U.S.

    How do I schedule a conference call?

    Run a conference call now or schedule calls in the future. Give attendees the date and time you’ve planned, along with the dial-in number and conference code. Copy and paste your dial-in information from your admin dashboard and send it manually via email or instant message.

    Can I schedule a conference call from my calendar?

    Create email invites instantly! Schedule and send out conference call and online meeting invites from your Outlook or Google Calendar. The invite includes one-click meeting access for easy mobile participation.
