Office@Hand: Promoting Local Conference on the Office@Hand Desktop App
Article #9603

How do I promote my local conference on the Office@Hand Desktop App to accommodate more participants?

When you add people directly to the call on the Office@Hand Desktop App, it’s called local conference. These calls are reported as one-on-one calls in the call log and is limited to seven (7) participants. With the Promotion to Conference bridge feature, Users will be able to increase the number of conference participants when necessary. This offers service with its own dial in number that doesn’t have such limitation. This feature will also eliminate the need to manually end ongoing call and create new conference bridge when local conference reaches the seven (7)-participant limit.

Example scenario: Two (2) coworkers on a one-on-one phone call require immediate feedback and decide to invite additional team members to their call. One-on-one phone calls that turn into ad hoc conference calls are enabled to support the increased number of participants.

When the local conference hits the seven (7)-participant limit, the Promotion to Conference bridge feature will be available right after the local conference call is created. All Users from the local Conference Call will be automatically transferred to the Conference bridge.
