Creating a Conference Number

Conferencing is used to connect multiple callers to the same live call. Users can join a conference by dialing into a Conference Number and inputting a Conference ID. The Conference Number is a location-based feature, and multiple users can use the same Conference Number to set up their personal Conference Bridges.

Please contact Nextiva Support to enable this feature on your account.

 

From the main dashboard, click Manage in the Locations tile.
