Conference bridges allow up to 20 participants to join a call simultaneously allowing you to have meetings with anyone, no matter where they’re located. A conference bridge can be accessed through an auto-attendant option, a direct phone number, a direct transfer, or by dialing an internal extension. Once you have joined a conference call, you can control your mic and volume levels (hosts have additional controls).
Access a Conference Bridge
From Your Jive Phone
1. Dial the conference bridge extension.
2. Enter the conference bridge pin (if required).
3. Record your name and then press # (if required).
From a Remote Phone
There are three ways for callers to access a conference bridge externally:
1. The caller is blind transferred to the conference bridge extension.
2. The caller is routed to the conference bridge through a dial plan (auto attendant node or conference room node).
3. The caller dials a phone number that is directed to the conference bridge.
Note: Once connected, you may be prompted to enter a conference bridge pin and/or to record your name.
