Conferences

The Conference Bridge allows groups of callers (large and small) to participate in the same call. An internal extension can dial the number direct to a conference; and outside callers can be routed to a conference by: being transferred from an existing call, being routed direct via a DID, or selecting an option from a menu. Each conference can be configured to require a PIN for entrance, or not.
