FAQ:
  • Participants can dial into the conference bridge before the host starts the meeting and will hear music-on-hold until the host enters the call.
  • There is a notification tone when a caller enters or leaves the conference call, but there is no list of callers to let you not know who joined or left the call.
  • If the host hangs up (or gets accidentally disconnected) on the call, it does not disconnect the callers.  However, the host can't rejoin the call as the "host".  They must use the access method of a attendee as shown above.
  • Conference Now is a reservation less service.  Subscribers can schedule conference calls without any Telecom involvement 24 hours a day.
