Keeping your conference call a positive experience for all parties can be a little tricky, but FreeConference.com offers tools to make everything run more smoothly. Check out these tips for a more productive conference call:

Use Moderator Controls

Keep your participants muted for as much of the call as possible. The call Organizer can mute the other parties by pressing *7, which is a three-position toggle in this order: Conversation Mode, Q-and-A Mode, Presentation Mode and Conversation Mode. A voice prompt will alert you to the current mode each time you change the configuration. Proactively muting the conference through the use of Organizer controls is generally more effective than asking callers to mute their own lines.

Record your Calls

Record the call so that others who couldn’t participate can still catch up. Conference recording also gives everyone on the call a chance to review and or take notes on the session, in a way that’s just not possible while the conference is in progress.

Schedule your Calls in Advance

Use FreeConference.com’s handy scheduling tool to send invitations to conference participants, so that they’ll have all the information they need to join in one handy notification. Want more?
