Brekeke Hot Feature News: April 2008

This month’s HOT feature: 
— [Brekeke PBX v2.x] Call Conference Part I (Notify & Limit Attendee) 
— [Brekeke PBX v2.x] Call Conference Part II (Confirm Call & Convene a meeting) — Next enews 

Tired of waiting? – Receive notification when a conference call has started

With the Brekeke PBX conference call feature, conference attendees do not need to wait in empty conference line for others to enter into a conference call. With a simple setting at the Brekeke PBX, attendees will receive a call from the Brekeke PBX when the conference call has started. Now you do not need to wait on the conference line alone! 

Here is how to set it up: 

  1. Open [Edit] page of the extension number for the virtual conference room
  2. Set attendees’ extension/telephone numbers at [Forwarding destinations*]

Once this is set, attendees (the extension/telephone number) will receive a call when a conference call has started. 

Limit Attendees – Meeting for a strict list of members

By setting numbers and extensions at the user settings of the virtual conference room extension, you can restrict who may join a particular conference call. 

  1. Open [Edit] page of the extension number for the virtual conference room
  2. At [Applied to (Caller numbers)*], set users you wish to invite to conference call.

(example 1) [Applied to (Caller numbers)*]=1001,2001,3001 
With this above settings, only extension 1001, 2001, and 3001 may enter into the conference room. 

(example 2) [Applied to (Caller numbers)*]=1* 
Only extensions or the telephone numbers beginning with “1” may enter. (i.e., 100, 1234, 16504016636) 

(example 3) [Applied to (Caller numbers)*]=2?? 
Only extensions with three digits which begin with “2” may enter. (i.e., 234,222,298) 

Other callers will receive a “busy” tone when they try to join the conference call.
