Working with Your Conference

The AT&T Conference Monitor interface offers a visual, point-and-click alternative to using touchtone commands for controlling your conference and changing Host options. The AT&T Conference Monitor interface offers enhanced participant information and control.

This section contains 13 buttons that let you control the conference. They are:

Changing Current Conference Options

Working with Participants

The AT&T Conference Monitor offers far more capabilities for working with participants than is possible with the touchtone interface. The additional capabilities derive mostly from the Participant Information area.

Dialing Out from AT&T Conference Monitor

The AT&T Conference Monitor supports the same simple dial-out process that is available using touchtones, which is most often used to add another participant to an existing conference.

Adding a Participant

Follow the steps below to add a participant to a conference that is under way and to which the Host is connected:

  1. Click the Dial button. The "Dial Window" dialog box appears.
  2. Enter the phone number you want to dial (without dashes or parentheses). Then click Dial.
  3. You can assign a name to each participant by selecting each entry and clicking on the pencil action button and typing the name into it.

Note: The host can connect or disconnect the line using touchtone commands. In this case, the host talks directly to the participant prior to rejoining the conference. See the Touchtone Commands section.
