Key Terms to Know When Making a TeleConference Call
Conferences on the phone have become a norm in offices these days. As providers of 800 TeleConference calls, we think that it is best to make our users aware of the various terms used while making a TeleConference call. Knowing these terms will help you manage the 800 TeleConference calls that you make.
- Access code: This is the number that participants need to key in after they dial the number that was provided. This is the number the person setting up the TeleConference call provides all participants.
- Dial out: Some of the services included the option to dial out. This means that the participants do not need to call to participate in the call, but someone can call them to add them to the conversation.
- Line muting: This is a provision that is provided with our services that silences some of the lines when there is too much noise disturbance in the background. This feature helps to make a teleconference easier to listen to when you can block extra noise.
- Moderator: The moderator of a call is the person who initially set it up. In most cases this person is the one that navigates all the conversations towards the agenda during the meeting. Their responsibilities include informing participants of the dial in number, the password, the time and date of the call, and the agenda. Other participants cannot enter a call before the moderator is present.
While there are likely to be teleconferencing terms that are unique to different services, knowing these terms will help you navigate and set up teleconferencing calls on our system. The process is simple and can be accomplished by following simple instructions without too much trouble. All you have to do is make the first move. Once you sign up, you’ll get 200 conference minutes as a gift!
