Conference Functions

Conference options fall under a menu that can be accessed by pressing the # key at any time during the conference.

All these options can be triggered during the conference by dialing the assigned key combinations, such as *1, *2 instead of simply pressing 1, 2 as before. This redesign is meant to avoid accidental requests that may occur when the user presses a key by mistake.

As soon as the conference starts, you get a message reading that you can enter the conference by pressing the # key at any point. Some conference options are available both to simple users and the moderator, whereas others can only be used by the conference moderator.
