Creating Conference Call Bridge Numbers

Adding Conference Call Bridge Numbers for New Users

When a client says, “I’d like to have another conference line,” what they need is another conference call bridge number. A conference bridge number is the access code used to join your particular conference call.  With multiple conference bridges available in your account, concurrent conference calls can be run by different hosts.

Why Have More Conference Bridge Lines?

Why would you generate a new conference bridge in your account? Starting off a meeting well is integral to long-term success. But, not when this nightmare scenario happens.

Let’s say you have three employees that regularly hold conference calls, Mary, Jim, and Bob. On Tuesday, Bob has a conference call planned for 10:00 am which also coincides with a call Mary has set up. The problem is you only have one conference bridge available in your account. Now you need more.

This scenario can lead to both hosts feeling embarrassed. The attendees are confused. Neither conference call is a success.

To avoid situations like this, add more conference codes to your account and assign the code to specific users. This way, there will be no more scheduling conflicts or overlapping of conference calls. You can generate and assign a different code to Mary, Jim, and Bob. They can each have their own unique conference code to use whenever they need to hold calls, and never have to worry about internal scheduling conflicts.

We give our users total control over their account preferences and usage. Further, each conference code in your account can have a specific plan associated with it. We offer various audio conferencing options with our service. Select which plan is best for your user based on their conferencing usage.

How do I add a new conference bridge code?

  • First, log in
  • When logged in click on “Account”
  • Click “Add New Member / Code” on the top right
  • Select the plan for that conference bridge and submit

Now that the conference bridge has been generated you can begin using it immediately. To assign the conference codes to a user in your organization just click on “Assign to a user” and enter their information.

There’s no additional cost to generate new conference codes in your account other than the plan you decide to set them up under. And there’s no limit to the number of conference bridge codes you can have.
