Perfect for meeting with smaller groups for unplanned meetings, there is more than one way that you can initiate an on-demand FreeConference.com call right now.
The first and easiest way is simply to give your Dial-In Number and Access Code to all your participants. Once everyone has dialed in using the same access code at the same time you will all be connected together on the conference line.
Your call-in information can be found at the top of the Home page of your account and also under the 'Start Now' and 'Schedule' buttons, as well as in the Menu under 'Conference Details'. Simply click on the 'Copy call information' button to add this information to your clipboard. You can then paste this into an email or text message to send to participants.
You can also initiate a call using your online meeting room. Simply login to your account and click "Start" to initiate an on-demand conference call that will begin right away. Note that you can have your callers join via phone or internet and everyone will be connected together in the same conference call.
You will arrive then see the following window appear, asking how you wish to connect.
The first caller in a video conference will hear hold music. Once at least one other participant arrives this music will stop and you will hear each other.
Note that your webcam — and the webcams of any other web-based participants — will be OFF by default. You’ll have to click on the Video button in the toolbar at the top in order to activate your webcam. Participants would do the same to activate their own webcams, where applicable.
While in the Online Meeting room you will see that you can invite participants via the Menu or also, when you are the first caller, via the button that appears at the bottom right of your screen. This will send an email with the conference details.
