How To Start Your Conference, Bridge or Meet Me

Ad Hoc Conference Call (from your desk phone WITHOUT conference phone)

  1. From your Cisco phone, dial your first number. Once that party is on the line, push the button under the MORE tab   

  2. Press the button that says CONFRN, key in your next number   

  3. Once that number has dialed, a button will appear that says CONFRN, press this button to add this call to the conference call. Your callers will not hear each other until you push the CONFRN button   

  4. Add your third participant by repeating the steps above.    To end the call, hang up the phone or push the END CALL button.        *The dialing is the same as from your office phone: for on campus numbers just use the four digit extension, to dial off campus you will need to dial a 9 and then the number.   


To start the Meet Me Conference Call:   

  1. Pick up the handset and push the MORE button on your phone

  2. Push the button that says MEETME

  3. After the two beeps, dial the extension that was given to you for this call

  4. A screen will appear that says Conference

  5. The phone will beep as people join your call

*To end the call, hang up the phone or push the END CALL button.   


To use the SUU Bridge service you will be given an 1‐800 number that all your parties will dial. Once the number is dialed, all parties will need to enter the access code that will be provided to you. (The administrator will be asked to dial the pin number and will have different administrative rights with the call. The person requesting the Bridge # is generally assigned as the administrator.)

Once the Conference Bridge is scheduled, a document will be sent to you from Barbara Brown that states the phone and access numbers and letters that can be sent to participants with information about the call.
