Meet Me conferencing allows staff/faculty who do not have digital telephones to conduct a conference call with up to six people (including themselves). Currently, only digital telephones allow this number of people to conference in on a call.
How Does It Work?
First, you need to request a “Meet Me Conference” number at least 24 hours in advance. Reservations may be made by calling 814-863-3410 or by faxing your request to 814-865-1100.
You will be assigned a number and confidential code to provide to those you wish to conference in on your call. The caller will then dial the number at the specified time you setup for the conference call, entering the provided code when requested. If they enter the wrong code it will give them two more opportunities to enter the code. After three tries it will disconnect the caller.
If you are the first person to dial the conference number, it will tell you that you are the first person to join the conference. If you are the second through sixth person, it will tell you the call is already in progress. If the conference has six people connected, it will tell the seventh caller the conference is full and disconnect the caller.
The code provides security for your call, allowing only those you have requested to join the conference call to be connected. As the host of the conference call you must also call the ‘Meet Me Conference” number to join the conference call. There is no charge for the “Meet Me Conference” reservation. Any toll charges will be placed with the callers through their regular long distance carrier.
