As the company administrator you have the ability to setup a conference group allowing up to 15 different people to be called automatically once the conference has been started. You may choose to use this to create incident bridges or similar instant conference groups for your company for this to be activated the conference group can be started by any user calling the conference number, which will then trigger calls to other group members.
In order to setup an instant conference group you need to click on “Instant Conference Group” under group management, where you will need to assign it to site, as well as defining a name, username, and caller id to be displayed on the phones when ringing.
Once you have completed this form you can click on the “Continue” button which will then ask you to define the maximum ring time for the user phones to be dialled if unanswered to avoid ongoing ringing.
Clicking on “Continue” will then prompt you to search and confirm the numbers that need to be added to this conference group, and this can simply be done by selecting the required number and then clicking on the “Add” button.
Once you’re happy with the group members you can then click on “Continue” to finally assign a number to the instant conference group and any extension for internal call routing, prior to clicking on either “Finish and Edit”, or “Finish and show list” to establish this conference group.
