Re: Conference call (how to use)

With a call in progress, press CONFERENCE, dial the internal or external number (you may have to dial 9), then press CONFERENCE again. This will join the three together.
Note: for two external calls, your extension must have the ability to access more than one outside line.

Panasonic kx t7436 how many conference will do conference

you can do as many conferences as you have phones, but one phone can have one conference at a time with 3 total parties(depending on your phone system) in the conference (so yourself and 2 other people, inside or outside of the office)

if you have a TDA/TDE/NCP phone system (blue box on the wall or in a computer rack) you can have 5 people in a single conference...

if you have a TD phone system (white box on the wall) you are limited to a 3 party conference

Starplus Vodavi Triad digtal system conference call problems

sorry this is not possible . The conference is controlled by the system , each time you add a person to the conference the volume will drop and it gets harder to hear the callers . you need to up grade to a phone system that supports a conference bridge card or just have the phone company do the conference bridge for you but it will cost you every time you do this .

Four way calling

When you conference two lines or more together you get what you call line loss which makes the audio levels deteriorate. So to conference yourself and three others properly you may have to try a few different options to get the performance you want out of the conference call. Many phones/phone systems have three way calling which connects you and two others, so depending on the calls you wish to connect, an option would be to have one of your callers actively participate in the conference connection procedure. For example. You have a two line phone with a conference feature. So you call person A on one line and person B on the other, then hit the conference key. Now you have "Y" (yourself) and person A and B speaking together via the conference feature on your telephone. Now all you need is person A or B to have the same two line setup with the conference feature and they make the third call to person C and hit their conference button, now all four (Y,A,B&C) of you all talking together. If it is not possible to have one of the callers do this, you will need to have at least three phone lines and a phone that will enable you to have four way calling. However, you may want to dial 611 from your telephone, and try to get to a service rep., your local phone company may have some options for you. However, rather than investing in costly phone equipment, it might be cheaper to use a call conferencing service. They are fairly cost effective, and you basically have the three other partys call a toll free number at a specified time and you call get conferenced together for a fee. And last, you may want to research some VOIP options if all the partys have high speed connections. Good Luck
