To schedule a conference, follow the recommendations below.
Click the Schedule a new Conference icon available in the Tools section of the Scheduled Conferences page.
This extension type allows setting up conferences that can be accessed by users calling from phones connected to the system, as well as by outside callers (e.g. calling from a phone connected to the PSTN).
This section contains the basic options needed for scheduling a conference.
