The Zip Conferencing Newsletter - Tips, Tricks and Information
Summer is Winding Down - The weather is still nice and vacations are still the rule but we are approaching the time when kids go back to school and parents go back to work. So enjoy your time at the beach, lake house, mountains or wherever while you can. And if you need to work while on vacation why not do it using our remote meeting capabilities. No need to cut the vacation short or travel to the office. Just set up a conference call or better yet do a web conference from anywhere. If you still haven't tried our web conferencing solution you can get a free 30 day trial by calling Sales and getting the free trial for web conferencing added to your account.

Did You Know?
You can add a Custom Greeting to your conference call?
That's right, you can have your participants greeted by your voice welcoming them to your conference call. You can record anything you like and it will play after your participants enter the pass code to join the conference call service. All you have to do is use the Host Control for Custom Greeting by hitting *32 on your telephone after you join the conference call as Moderator. The system will then guide you through the process.

FAQ of the Month
Is there any way to make sure participants disconnect at the end of the conference call?
There are a couple of ways to insure that participants are disconnected when you end a conference call. As Moderator you can disconnect all participants at the end of the conference call by pressing *93 which will disconnect all lines. Or you can set your conference calls to disconnect when the Moderator leaves the call. This is in the Conference Options of the conference reservation which you can access through your conferencing Hub. If you need assistance accessing this feature you can find more details in the Knowledgebase or call us at 866-704-2451 press 1 and someone can assist you.
