HOW TO SET UP A CONFERENCING CALL

Setting up a conferencing call is a piece of cake (yum) with PowWowNow. Businesses need to be able to run their meetings at a drop of a hat, and conference calls facilitate just that (we’re a poet and didn’t know it). Not only does it need to be super speedy to sign up, but it also needs to be quick to set up and join a conference.

Here's how you can get instant access to sign up, schedule and join an online conference:

START YOUR CALL IN 3 (THE MAGIC NUMBER) SIMPLE STEPS

  • 1. Create an account
  • 2. Share your details with your Guests
  • 3. Dial-in and enter your PIN (forever rhyming) to connect

2. SCHEDULE

Everyone likes an invite, right? Makes them feel special. When scheduling a conferencing call, send a calendar invite so you aren’t alone wondering how everyone forgot the meeting you’ve been planning for days.

THIS IS HOW TO SCHEDULE A CONFERENCING CALL:

  • 1. Create a calendar invite as you would usually when you’re booking a meeting
  • 2. Add the guests you want to invite, along with the date and time of the meeting and change the location to a ‘conference call’ or whatever tickles your fancy
  • 3. Provide the dial-in numbers and PIN in the body of the invite and briefly explain how to join the call
  • 4. Press send! Boom, now your colleagues can’t make any excuses if they don’t turn up

3. JOIN

  • When it’s time to join your call, all you need to do is enter your dial-in number and PIN. Make sure you’ve got it to hand to avoid any unnecessary hiccups!
  • If you are dialling in via our mobile app you can use our one click dial-in feature, which will input your PIN automatically.
  • State your name when prompted and you can begin your meeting! All aboard the call train *whoop whoop*
