Configure Conferencing Policy for Dial-in
Topic Last Modified: 2010-11-09
Conferencing policy is a user account setting that specifies the conferencing experience for participants. You can create conferencing policies with a site scope or a user scope. Conferencing policy settings encompass many aspects of conference scheduling and participation. Several conferencing policy settings support dial-in conferencing for participants. When you configure dial-in conferencing, you should verify that these fields are set appropriately for your organization, and modify them as necessary.
Verify the following fields in your conferencing policy:
- Allow participants to invite anonymous users This setting allows meeting organizers to invite anonymous (that is, unauthenticated) participants to meetings. This setting is optional for dial-in conferencing. This setting is selected by default in the default global conferencing policy.
- Enable PSTN dial-in conferencing This setting allows users to join the audio portion of a conference by dialing in from the PSTN. This setting is required for dial-in conferencing. This setting is selected by default in the default global conferencing policy.
- Allow anonymous participants to dial out This setting allows anonymous (that is, unauthenticated) users to join a conference by using dial-out phoning. With dial-out phoning, the conference server calls the user, and the user answers the phone to join the meeting. This setting is optional for dial-in conferencing. This setting is not selected by default in the default global conferencing policy.
