A New Voice for Conference Calls
You may have noticed, if you have done a conference call recently, that the voice on our system has changed. We recently updated all of the prompts on our conferencing equipment with a new female speaker. We hope that you have found the new voice a refreshing change. All of the actual prompts and commands for Host Controls and Participant controls have not changed.
New Step when you Add a Moderator
There is an additional step now when you go to add a Moderator to your account. You will asked to Select the Client's Association in a window that comes up when you go to add the Moderator. Simply click on the down arrow and select the company you want the Moderator associated with, most often there will only be one company there. Then click on the down arrow and select the conferencing Hub you want to associate the Moderator with and hit OK. This change was made to accommodate customers that have multiple companies and administrate them all through a single conferencing Hub administrative site.

FAQ of the Month
How do I turn off the tone that sounds when someone enters or exits the conference call?
You have control over a number of conference call options including the entry and exit tones on your conference call. You can have a tone sound only when someone enters or exits, no tone at all or have their name announced when they enter and exit the conference call. The control for the feature is located in the Conference Options section of the conference call reservation. After you log into your conferencing Hub locate the reservation by going to the Moderator who has the reservation, then View Audio Accounts and Edit the conference call. Open up the Conference Options and you will see the Entry and Exit tone options there. If you want the Name Announce feature you also need to select Record Participants Name for Roll Call but you do not have to conduct a Roll Call. This simply enable the Name Record feature. Hit Save and you are done.
