  • CONFERENCE CALL

  • How do I make a conference call?

    Using our service is extremely easy. If you don't already have a PIN, simply click here to get one. If you already have a PIN but are unsure of what it is, then log into your dashboard to view it here.

    First you need to let your Guests know the time and date of the call. They’ll need to know the PIN and dial-in number (be sure to send the mobile short code for those on the move). You can easily schedule a call by going to the scheduling tool tile within your account area. You’ll have multiple ways to schedule a call, including a copy to clipboard invitation, Outlook plugin and our mobile app.

    At the given time and date, everyone should dial into the call and enter the PIN when prompted. Once connected, you will all be placed into the same conference call.

  • Is there a time limit for my call?

    No, there is no limit to the duration of a conference call. However, we will automatically disconnect any conference lasting over 8 hours in case some Guests forgot to put the phone down!

  • Is there a maximum number of Guests allowed on a call?

    On our Basic and Standard plans, you will be limited to 50 callers for your conference call. On our paid plans there is no limit to the number of Guests who can join your conference call.

  • Does my PIN expire / can I reuse the same details?

    Our service is designed so PINs can be used again and again and your PIN remains the same for all your calls. If you require an expiration date on your PIN, we can offer Time-Limited PINs on our Enterprise service. For further details, please contact our Customer Service team or request a call back.

For further details, please contact our Customer Service team or request a call back. As an Enterprise customer we will issue you with a dual PIN-pair for additional security.

If you’d like to make the Host PIN entry optional, you can change the settings on your PIN in your PowWowNow Account.
