Dialogue Direct is a reservationless conference call service that provides the host with the flexibility to initiate conference calls as they are required. Having this flexibility is made possible with the use of a unique passcode and dial-in number, providing unlimited access to the conference bridge 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Dialogue Direct allows users to conduct their conference call by simply dialing the pre-assigned telephone number and entering the assigned passcode on the keypad. To begin a teleconference, all participants dial into the bridge using the number provided and follow the instructions as directed by the automated entry system.
Star (*) touch features allow moderators and participants to manage the call and obtain operator assistance if needed. Over 65 international toll-free numbers are also provided to allow your moderators and participants to join calls even while travelling overseas.
Features available for Dialogue Direct
This feature provides the moderator the ability to manage up to 9 breakout rooms/sub-conferences. To use the feature, the moderator presses the appropriate star feature and instructs participants on the different sub-conferences available (1-9). Participants will join the appropriate conference by pressing # followed by the correct sub-conference number.
At any time during the conference, the moderator can record the conference. All participants will be advised that the conference is being recorded.
